Compared to international estimates, Russia claims to have lost far fewer troops in the war in Ukraine than those reported by other sides such as Ukraine, the UN and NATO.
According to the Russian state news agency, Russia has 1,351 casualties, a number that is much lower than the estimates of casualties provided by Ukraine, which estimates Russian losses at about 16,000, and NATO, which estimates that Russia lost between 7,000 and 15,000 soldiers.
Throughout the war, Russia also suffered significant losses in its motorized units, which is confirmed by both video and indisputable photograph evidence.
NATO believes that Russia has lost up to 10% of the equipment of the invading forces so far, despite the fact that the Russian Ministry of Defense has not published how many military means it has lost during the attack.
According to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Russia has lost 1,625 armored vehicles, 1,089 combat vehicles, 115 aircraft, and 115 helicopters since the beginning of the invasion.
