Ukraine claimed on Saturday that over 10,000 Russian soldiers have been killed and 1,870 units of heavy and light military equipment, including 39 fighter planes and 40 helicopters, have been destroyed since Russia attacked its neighbor on Feb. 24, Anadolu Agency reported.

If true, the figures would be quite high, as the USSR is said to have lost 15,000 soldiers in the 10-year Afghanistan war.

As of today, the war in Ukraine is 10 days old. Logistical failures and reluctant soldiers have reportedly hobbled Russia’s war effort.
