On 13 April 2022: – Oryx has tweeted, “Russia is now visually confirmed to have lost 500 tanks since it began its invasion of Ukraine on February 24” – from the Russian cruiser Moskva wikipedia page: “Ukrainian presidential adviser Oleksiy Arestovych, and Odessa governor Maksym Marchenko, said that Moskva had been hit by two Neptune anti-ship missiles and was on fire in rough seas.
