Ukrainian artillery opens fire on Russian positions.

Russia on the brink as fresh casualty figures expose true level of carnage in Ukraine

Russia’s losses in Ukraine could be hundreds of thousands more than originally estimated by Western intelligence, a new analysis has revealed.

Putin’s army has suffered horrifying casualties since it launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine just over two years ago.

Throughout the campaign, Russian commanders have shown scant regard for the lives of their soldiers, throwing them into the meat grinder with little compunction.

Ukraine says that Russian troops often launch waves of frontal attacks on heavily defended positions, seemingly in defiance of any sound military logic.

According to The General Staff of Ukraine‘s Army, Russia has lost around 552,000 soldiers – either killed or injured.

These figures, however, could be seriously underestimating the scale of the slaughter on the frontlines.

A new analysis of data by the Economist magazine suggests that the Russian army may have lost as many as 728,000 soldiers.

This is based on recent research carried out by two independent Russian media outlets – Mediazona and Medusa.
