Russia Suffers Major Troops Losses In Just One Week

The Russian army has suffered tremendous casualties as it has advanced westward along the front lines. Russian forces in the war-torn country lost 1,160 personnel in the previous 24 hours, according to the latest information from Ukraine’s military.

The Ukrainian military announced on Sunday that 5,760 Russians had died in the previous seven days.

The Russian monthly casualty tally in February was the highest since Moscow’s soldiers invaded Ukraine in February 2022, according to the British government’s March report.

Over 335,000 Russians have reportedly died throughout this time, according to London.

Nicholas Reynolds, a ground warfare research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute think tank in London, has stated that the number of deaths reported by Ukraine has been deemed accurate. This includes not just casualties in general but also Russian combatants who have gone missing or died in situations unrelated to battle.

Russia is committed to mass and attritional warfare, according to an information update from the U.K. Defense Ministry.

Over two years of conflict have also been extremely difficult for Ukraine. 

Russia said on Sunday that around 900 fighters were killed or wounded in the previous day’s fighting in Kyiv. The exact number of casualties suffered by the Ukrainian people since February 2022 was not, however, estimated.

A significant challenge exists in independently verifying the combat mortality numbers reported by Moscow and Kyiv.

Russia has acknowledged losing 11 tanks in the previous 24 hours, bringing the overall loss to 51 tanks in the past week, according to Ukraine. Kyiv claims that Moscow has lost 6,790 tanks since February 2022. The Russian Defense Ministry states that 15,509 tanks and armored combat vehicles have been declared lost by Ukraine. 

The U.S. think tank, the Institute for the Study of War, said that both sides suffered significant fatalities as Russia seemed to have captured two villages in eastern Ukraine. Reports surfaced on Saturday claiming that the towns of Tonenke and Nevelske, situated to the west and southwest of Avdiivka, now occupied by Moscow, have been taken over by Russian forces, according to the think tank.

According to the Ukrainian General Staff, eleven Russian raids were successfully repelled in the regions of Tonenke, Nevelske, Berdychi, and Pervomaiske.

On Sunday, Russian officials stated that their forces had driven Ukrainian troops from their positions near Tonenke and had beaten off counterattacks near Berdychi and Pervomaiske.
