Russian Invasion: Ukraine War: Almost 500,000 Russians killed or injured

“Objectively speaking, the figures indicate terrible losses for a country like Russia”: the British representative to the OSCE reports heavy losses for the Russian army.

According to the British government, more than 465,000 Russian soldiers have been killed or injured since the war in Ukraine began.

This is according to a speech by a British representative to the Organization for Security and Cooperation (OSCE) in Vienna, which was quoted by the Foreign Ministry in London. According to the speech, the rate of Russian soldiers killed or wounded per day was never as high as last month, with an estimated 1,000 casualties per day.

According to the British, the war of aggression is also costing Moscow dearly financially. According to them, defense spending now amounts to 40 percent of Russian state spending. That corresponds to six percent of the country’s gross domestic product. “Objectively, the figures indicate terrible losses for a country like Russia – in Russian human lives, material and credibility,” the representative was quoted as saying.
