The exact numbers of Russian losses in the Ukraine war are unclear.

The Kremlin is silent.

But data keeps leaking through: the news ticker.

  • Losses in figures:

    Kiev announces Russia's losses.

  • Editor's note:

    Read the latest developments in the Ukraine conflict in our news ticker.

    The information on the Ukraine war processed here comes partly from the warring parties in Russia and Ukraine.

    They can therefore not be independently checked in part.

Moscow/Kyiv - Russia has suffered heavy losses in the Ukraine war so far.

How high the losses of the Russian army are actually, is unclear.

The Kremlin itself is largely silent.

Most recently, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu gave official figures in September.

"Russia's losses amount to 5937," he said at the time.

However, a second wave of mobilization planned by Vladimir Putin suggests that the losses are considerably higher and can only be compensated for with new recruits.

Losses for Russia in the Ukraine war very high

The testimonies of a former officer of a Russian special forces and an active FSB officer of the Russian secret service, which the Russian investigative

portal Istories published in October

, also make it clear how many problems the Russian armed forces have to struggle with in the Ukraine war.

According to them, the number of casualties at that time was almost 90,000.

This included fallen soldiers, but also missing and wounded soldiers who are unable to return to military service.

As early as April, the Readovka news

portal

, which is close to the Kremlin , accidentally published figures on Russia's losses in the Ukraine war.

At that time there was talk of 13,414 fallen soldiers and around 7,000 missing.

For comparison: In the ten-year war in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1989, the then Soviet Union lost 14,523 dead.

Later information spoke of 26,000 fallen soldiers.
