NextImg:Russia loses more than 1,100 personnel in a day, highest count of war, Ukraine says

Russia's army in Ukraine has taken another hit, losing 1,140 personnel on Friday, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The latest tally marks the deadliest day Russia has faced since the start of its invasion of Ukraine a little less than a year ago in late February 2022, with a total of 136,880 Russian deaths since then. Friday's death toll beats the record set only a few days earlier, when Kyiv claimed that 1,030 troops had died, according to Newsweek.

Ukraine had been "pretty consistent in giving figures that seemed to make sense considering what the battle is," said Glen Grant, a military analyst from the Baltic Security Foundation.

Ukraine's tallies have not been independently verified, and Moscow has not updated the death toll of its troops since September of last year. Western officials have estimated that Russia has almost 200,000 soldiers killed or wounded since the start of the war in Ukraine.

Grant claims that the fighting between the two countries is "the nastiest since those last few days in the attack of Kyiv when both sides were banging hard against each other."

On Friday, Ukraine's air defense systems were put to work after Russia launched new attacks across the country. Russian forces attacked critical infrastructure in the country over the course of Thursday night, with explosions heard in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Khmelnytskyi, Lviv, and other areas of Ukraine.

President Joe Biden hinted on Thursday that he would not travel to Ukraine in response to speculation about the prospect of visiting the country close to the 1-year anniversary of the war. However, the White House did announce he would travel to Poland to mark the occasion. The president previously said in January that he planned to talk with President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine about the latest requests for weapons to defend the country against Russia.
