Some of the numbers that I came across were:
On June 22, 1941 for the Attack on Russia the Luftwaffe deployed 1,945
aircraft(approx 61% of the total Luftwaffe) Between June 22, 1941 to
April 8, 1942, 2,951 aircraft were lost. So despite a the massive
amount of Russian planes shot down during the summer and fall of 1941
the Luftwaffe was already suffering severe losses in men and aircraft.
The losses were over one third of the entire aircraft production for the
same period!

According to German records, the Luftwaffe lost about 25,000 planes on the Eastern Front.
