How many Russians have died in the Ukraine war? - BBC News

Показать описание
When Russian invaded Ukraine, the BBC and its partners began painstakingly verifying and counting as many deaths as possible.

We identified more than 25,000 named individuals - people we know to have died - setting a bare minimum for Russia's total losses.

The count provides hard evidence of the war's impact on Russian forces. But it has also given answers to grieving families. Some relatives did not even know what had happened to their loved ones until the BBC traced them.

How many Ukrainian soldiers have died? A good neutral unbiased report on those deaths as well would be useful.

It took 15, 000 deaths to force Soviets out of Afghanistan. I imagine it far higher then 25, 000

Not to mention 900, 000 military age men have left Russia. That alone is going to crush Russia's economy for the next 30 years.

This is not deaths. It's the number of graves you have found.

The number of confirmed losses will rise during reconstruction when the bodies of abandoned Russian soldiers are found. There are a few groups trying to recover bodies regardless of nationality but its a dangerous task during the active conflict.

So many Mothers, Brothers, Sisters and Fathers who will never see their loved ones again.

These are only the graves of soldiers whose bodies were (1) retrieved (2) transported home, and (3) whose deaths or burials were publicly announced — i.e. by family in local papers.

These are only confirmed fatalities. Prigozhen states that over 20, 000 Wagner were killed in Bakhmut alone and you must also take into consideration that there was thousands of regular Russian troops, airborne forces and separatists killed in Bakhmut also. People erroneously think that it was only Wagner troops in Bakmut. That Wagner soldier who escaped to Norway at the beginning of the year states that there is numerous mass graves in Luhansk containing Wagner soldiers and one was found in late January early February containing 49 Wagners. In just the first two weeks of the invasion over 3, 000 Russian soldiers were killed and the Ukranian government got in touch with their Russian counterparts to have them repatriated to Russia but the latter claimed this was nonsense as only 30 Russuan soldiers were KIA!. We will never know the whole truth or the true figure of Russian KIA. No doubt Ukraine inflate the figure but there is no denying they are on an industrial scale. Russia has such low respect for human life and consider Russian lives especially the prisoner/ convict element expendable. I know in Russia a lot of families have come together as they have not heard from loved ones serving in Ukraine. Obviously they are dead because if they were POW's they would have heard something from them.These families are now forming organisations and the Kremlin have taken a heavy handed stance against them. God only knows how many Russian soldiers, Wagners and separatists have been killed. Russian Naval personnel took huge casualties near Vuledar since last September as they were used as rudimentary infantrymen. A Russian based journalist in Moscow who stated he had official military access put Russian losses last October at over 90, 000. However he did not clarify if this was exclusively Russian regulars or all forces from the Russian Federation. Remember in Russia it is a criminal offence to print, publish or post casualty figures. Simple as this we will never know but Russian losses are on a leviathan level.
