Oryx, an open source intelligence website, revealed that Russia could have lost up to half of all its operational tank fleet since the beginning of the war on Ukraine.

Vladimir Putin, the website claims, is now short of up to 1,000 tanks.

They added that a further 544 Russian tanks have been tanks by Ukrainian forces, 79 have been damaged and 65 have been abandoned by Russian troops.

A military analyst writing for the website, Jakub Janovsky, said: “Russia started the war with around 3,000 operational tanks … so there is a good chance that Russia has lost one half of (its) usable tanks.”
