Moscow Offers Update On Casualties From Ukraine Conflict by bonechamberlain(m): 9:07pm On Mar 25, 2022
More than 1,300 servicemen have been killed and nearly 4,000 injured in the offensive in Ukraine, the Russian military says

The Russian Defense Ministry provided a rare update on the casualties the country's armed forces have suffered during the ongoing military offensive in Ukraine, on Friday.

“Unfortunately, during the special military operation there have been losses among our comrades-in-arms. To date, 1,351 servicemen have died and 3,825 have been injured,” the deputy head of the Russian General Staff, Colonel General Sergey Rudskoy told a media briefing.

The official did not provide any figures on soldiers who have potentially gone missing in action or been taken prisoner amid the conflict. The Ukrainian side has sustained heavy casualties (around 30,000) over the past month, Rudskoy clarified. According to Russian military estimates, around 14,000 Ukrainian troops have been killed, and a further 16,000 have been injured.

Ukraine’s military has sustained major losses in hardware, with nearly 1,600 tanks and other armored vehicles destroyed, he alleged, adding that the Russian offensive has largely destroyed Kiev’s air and anti-aircraft forces, while its navy has effectively ceased to exist.

The official casualty figures provided by the Russian military differ drastically from the estimates from the Ukrainian side. According to the latest claims by Kiev, around 16,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the conflict, with hundreds of tanks, armored vehicles, and artillery pieces destroyed.

Kiev, however, remains tight-lipped on its own casualties. The most recent figure was announced by President Volodymyr Zelensky in mid-March, when he said that around 1,300 Ukrainian soldiers had died in combat.

Moscow sent troops into Ukraine in late February, following a seven-year standoff over Kiev’s failure to implement the terms of the Minsk agreements, and Russia’s eventual recognition of the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. The German- and French-brokered Minsk Protocol was designed to regularize the status of the regions within the Ukrainian state.

Russia has now demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join NATO. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and has denied claims it was planning to retake the two republics by force.

All these are avoidable.

We know Russia's aim is to carve out Ukraine into two.

Now they have linked Crimea by taking Mariupol.

Hope this war end soon

May there gentle and patriotic souls rest in peace. They forth not only for Russian integrity but the freedom of the world's peoples.

The Russians have given there own figure and I believe it. God bless mother Russia. Thank you.

For the record, there is a genocide and an ethnic cleansing going on now against the people of Southern Kaduna. We are being killed for absolutely no reason but hate and land theft, may God help us and may the people rise.

Very transparent people. Not all these "100 thousand Russian soldiers killed" propaganda by the West.

Imagine what humans lives is now worth.

It's really disheartening seeing this mess the European has caused the world.

We never asked them to colonize the world but they did anyways with their selfish interest at heart.

Anything pro Russia doesn't get attention due to the way the media have conditioned most minds.

Russia just successfully hit a Ukrainian military base, everyone is reporting on this except the msm

Ukraine depot was blown yesterday, leaving Ukrainian with shortage of gas, yet the msm claim Ukraine is winning and about to invade Moscow

A joke from Moscow: "According to Putin the special military operation is really a conflict btw Russia and NATO about World dominance. Whats the situation now?" "Russia has lost 15000 troops, 6 generals, 500 tanks, 3 ships, 100 planes and 1000 trucks. NATO hasn't arrived yet

Russia said they've lost 1300 soldiers while Ukraine has lost 30,000
while Ukraine said they've lost 1300 while Russia have lost 65,000.

Issokey, Let's see what happens next.

A war correspondent in Twitter said casualties from both sides, including civilians is still less than 5k

This is more reasonable. Not the 40k Ukranian media has been parroting.

War or conflicts have casualties on all parties involved.
