The war in Ukraine: the latest news
The Russian military continues to suffer heavy losses in battles with the Armed Forces. There are two reasons for the sharp growth – low-quality mobilization resources and a shortage of equipment, explained expert Oleksandr Kovalenko.
NATO intelligence said that against the backdrop of a new, larger-scale offensive, the Russian Federation is losing up to 2,000 soldiers for every 90 square meters of captured territory. Prigozhin showed how one of these assaults ended: a “Wagnerian” posted a photo of a mountain of corpses of his mercenaries on the Internet.
