Do the SSD hard drives break as easily as the older disk based hard drives where you lose all your data? Thanks.

They can have issues like anything, but most new hard drives under 2TB are decent enough.

They probably have a much smaller failure rate than a HDD, just don't defrag one.
Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two.

Why not? I got my first one and defrag at first then I saw people say this and stopped doing it. Did I f*** up my SSD? I mean it's still working.

To my knowledge it's just a matter of avoiding unnecessary writes to the SSD, it shouldn't brick it or anything too awful.

Okay, I only did it a handful of times and haven't in a long time now. I think I'm okay.

Actually, the opposite is true. You really have to try to damage an SSD.
