russia has probably lost about 80,000 killed in action and wounded in Ukraine over the past six months, the US Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl was cited as saying by ukrinform.net.
“On precise figures, there is a lot of fog in war. But I think it’s safe to suggest the russians have probably taken 70-80 thousand casualties in the last 6 months. That’s a combination of killed in action and wounded,” Kahl said.
In his words, that is “pretty remarkable”, considering the russians have achieved none of putin’s objectives declared at the beginning of the war.
