Since the beginning of the war, Russia has lost more than 37 thousand people, 1641 tanks and 676 UAVs – APU

The total combat losses of Russia from the beginning of the war against Ukraine on February 24 to July 10 amounted to 37,300 personnel. This was reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) on its Facebook page.

Also, according to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russian army lost 1,641 tanks, 3,823 armored combat vehicles, 834 artillery systems, 247 multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS), 108 air defense units, 217 aircraft, 188 helicopters, 676 operational-tactical UAVs, 155 winged missiles, 15 ships, 2,694 vehicles and tank trucks, and 66 special vehicles.

Russia suffered the greatest losses in the Kramatorsk direction, the General Staff noted.

In early June, the BBC Russian Service, citing a high-ranking representative of Western intelligence agencies, claimed that the number of Russian military dead during the war in Ukraine could reach 20,000. A week earlier, the official said that the number of victims on the Russian side was about 15,000.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, the Ministry of Defense has twice reported on the death of Russian servicemen - according to the latest data, 1,351 soldiers died. At the same time, on May 30, the BBC Russian Service found out the names of 3,052 Russian soldiers who died in the war in Ukraine. The publication clarifies that these are incomplete figures, since the media and regional authorities do not name all the dead, even if their bodies were delivered to their families and buried. The text says that in some cities, entire alleys have been allocated for the burial of those killed in Ukraine.

Before that, the Proekt publication published an investigation in which it established the names of 166 Russian commanders who give orders in the war in Ukraine. The list includes 72 generals and admirals, 69 colonels, 16 lieutenant colonels and 5 active state advisers of the Russian Federation of the 1st class, while every eighth of the officers is connected with Ukraine (has relatives, was born or studied there). At least 20 identified commanders from the list had already died by mid-May, the journalists specified.
