According to a report from the UK Ministry of Defence, since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, over 70,000 Russian soldiers, including Wagner Group mercenaries, have been killed.

This figure includes 50,000 Russian soldiers, 20,000 Wagner Group fighters and other private security companies.

According to a report released on Monday, since the onset of Russia’s invasion on February 24, 2022, an estimated 180,000 to 240,000 Russian soldiers have sustained injuries.

The exact casualty figures for Russian and Ukrainian forces are difficult to ascertain due to the lack of official data. NATO also estimated in late November that the casualties among Russian soldiers, including killed and wounded, are approximately 300,000.

According to The New York Times, Ukraine’s armed forces have tragically lost approximately 70,000 soldiers in the conflict, with an additional 100,000 to 120,000 wounded. The human toll on Ukraine’s military underscores the severity of the ongoing conflict in the region.

In reaction to the UK Ministry of Defence’s report regarding Russian casualties, Moscow has vehemently accused London of spreading false disinformation and furthering anti-Russian propaganda using a deliberate information campaign.

The allegations from both sides underscore the ongoing information war surrounding the conflict.
