Losses for Russia in the Ukraine war: arsenal of long-range missiles almost exhausted

+++ 11.00 a.m .:

According to British secret services, Russia is using outdated launchers in Ukraine that are actually designed for nuclear warheads.

The launchers would now be launched unarmed, without the warheads.

Although these missiles could still cause damage, Moscow is unlikely to achieve any serious success with them, the British government said.

Rather, the Kremlin hopes to distract the Ukrainian air defenses.

London took this as a sign of how exhausted Russia's arsenal of long-range missiles is.

Losses for Russia: Whistleblower accuses superiors of behaving "like in a circus".

+++ 19:06:

Russian soldiers are increasingly turning to media critical of Russia to report on the conditions at the front.

It also comes up again and again how Russia should keep silent about the majority of its dead.

Mediazona

, a platform founded by activists associated with the Kremlin-critical group Pussy Riot, has now

published a report by a Russian soldier from the 155th Brigade.

He reports how around 450 to 500 soldiers from his unit have died in the vicinity of the small Ukrainian village of Pavlivka in the Donetsk region in the past few weeks.

About the same number were injured.

Some of the unit's soldiers then asked the superiors to change tactics, after which the command initially threatened legal action.

Then the soldiers were promised awards to calm them down.

"Our commanders are acting like they're in a circus," the anonymous soldier accuses his superiors and reports that although some of his comrades were withdrawn from Pavliwka, those who complained were asked to hold their positions.

The whistleblower accuses his superiors of seeing more value in possible awards than in the lives of their soldiers.

"Probably the only way to stay alive," writes the soldier, is to desert.

Russia's losses in the Ukraine war: several reservists fell after partial mobilization

Update from Friday, November 25, 2:45 p.m .:

The losses in the Ukraine war are causing Russia major problems (see initial report).

The partial mobilization in September should remedy the situation.

According to estimates by British secret services, however, a large number of the conscripted reservists have already fallen.

In the Donetsk region, around the city of Bakhmut, among other things, a large number of mobilized reservists were killed, according to the short report by the British Ministry of Defence. 

The same applies to soldiers who had to dig trench systems in the Luhansk region while under heavy artillery fire.

The Kremlin must be concerned that an increasing number of families of reservists are prepared to protest against the conditions in which their relatives are serving and, if necessary, to be arrested.

Losses for Russia in the Ukraine war very high

First report from Friday, November 25th:

Moscow/Kiev - Russia has had to accept 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.

The statements of a former officer of a Russian special unit 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.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian general staff publishes the number of Russian casualties every day.

According to statistics from the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, more than 86,000 soldiers have died in combat in the nine months of the Ukraine war.
