Podolyak suggested that it was about TVs and cars stolen from Ukrainians.

Today, at a meeting of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Putin was asked what Russia has gained and lost since February 24. The Russian dictator replied: “We haven’t lost anything. And we won’t lose anything.”
“The main acquisition is the strengthening of our sovereignty. And this is the inevitable result of what is happening now,” Putin said, adding that, in his opinion, the Russian Federation “will gain momentum and pace of development.”
Podolyak, in response, recalled the large-scale losses of the Russian army in manpower and equipment, economic sanctions and the isolation of the Russian Federation in the civilized world, and also questioned the “acquisitions” that the Russian dictator announced.
“Putin convinces the Russian elites that Russia has not lost anything after February 24. Is it? Russia has lost markets, reputation, become a terrorist and a global pariah. And it also “lost” 50,000 military, 2,000 tanks and the cruiser “Moskva”. What the Russian Federation “acquired” instead? Stolen televisions and cars of Ukrainians?” Podolyak wrote.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry also reacted to Putin’s words, noting that 50,000 lives of its own citizens are “nothing” for the Russian Federation, and this is the reality of the “Russian world.”
- According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from February 24 to September 7, the loss of the Russian army amounted to about 50,610 people killed.
