Russia has reportedly lost more than 650 tanks and about 3,000 other armored vehicles and heavy equipment so far in its invasion of Ukraine.

So much Russian military equipment was left abandoned that Ukrainian authorities declared that anyone who took possession of such equipment did not need to declare it for tax purposes.

Please click on the images for glimpses of destroyed Russian tanks and armored vehicles.
