This is the moment Russian soldiers carry out repairs to armoured vehicles in the field and reintroduce them into service.
The Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on 2nd June: “Specialists of our repair and restoration units carry out work during the special military operation.
“Servicemen carry out the repair of weapons and military equipment in the field. In order to return the equipment to service as soon as possible, specialists use the method of modular repair by replacing faulty parts with serviceable ones from the repair fund, or removed from the captured equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“This method of repair allows you to significantly reduce the time for commissioning faulty weapons.
“After recovery, the equipment returns to its formations and military units.”
Russian troops invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 100th day of the campaign.
From 24th February to 2nd June, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 30,850 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,363 tanks, 3,354 armoured fighting vehicles, 661 artillery systems, 207 multiple launch rocket systems, 95 anti-aircraft systems, 210 warplanes, 175 helicopters, 2,325 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 vessels, 521 unmanned aerial vehicles, 51 units of special equipment, and 120 cruise missiles.
Analysts say over 70 per cent of the city of Sievierodonetsk is now controlled by invading Russian forces, with almost all critical infrastructure and housing destroyed.
The Russian MoD said in a statement on 1st June that its Yars mobile missile systems, which can carry nuclear warheads and which boast a reported range of over 10,000 kilometres (6,200 miles), were performing “intensive manoeuvring operations on combat patrol routes in the Ivanovo Region”, east of the Russian capital Moscow.
This comes after United States President Joe Biden said he will send Kyiv more advanced rocket systems that will help to strike enemy forces from a longer distance. These rocket systems have double the range of the rocket systems used by Russian forces and are said to be much more accurate.
