Russia has suffered significant casualties of military equipment both in the air and on the ground over the past 24 hours, Ukraine’s Armed Forces said in their latest update.

Ukraine’s military said Friday Russia had lost 18 tanks, a helicopter and a fighter jet, as well as 14 artillery systems and eight Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) the previous day.

Russia’s biggest casualties were towards Kramatorsky and Donetsk in the east of the country, adding that Ukrainian anti-aircraft missile units destroyed seven Russian targets, including four Iranian-made drones.

The details of the daily assessment have not been independently verified and news week has asked the Russian Defense Ministry for comment.

As the British Defense Ministry said on Friday, Ukrainian forces had over the past three days secured beachheads in Kharkiv Oblast on the east bank of the Oskil River, which Russia had sought to integrate into a consolidated line of defense after withdrawing its forces earlier in September.

Defense officials said Ukrainian troops are attacking the town of Lyman east of the Siverskyy Donets River, which Russia captured in May.

However, Kharkiv governor Oleh Synyehubov wrote on Telegram that Russian troops continue to “terrorize” the civilian population of his region by shelling settlements next to the line of contact and the border with Russia.

He said two children were among three people injured in the shelling.

On Wednesday, Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization to further his flagging invasion, which has seen his troops withdraw after a Ukrainian counter-offensive.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said 300,000 reservists would be called up, although there are reports the number sought would be much higher.

The video, which has been widely circulated on social media, shows men giving a tearful goodbye in a small town in the Sakha Republic in far eastern Russia, before being loaded onto a bus to be picked up for military training.

The mobilization has sparked the largest protests in Russia since the beginning of the war, arresting more than 1,300 people in 38 cities.

Meanwhile, in the Russian-controlled regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, as well as the southern regions of Kherson and Zaporizhia, votes on whether to become parts of Russia began on Friday. The referendums were dismissed by Kyiv and its allies as a sham.

The integration of the four regions in Russia would mean a major escalation of the conflict in Ukraine.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a UN Security Council meeting: “We cannot – we will not – allow President Putin to get away with it.”
