Russia Acknowledges Russian Soldier Deaths

Unfortunately, we have losses among our comrades who are participating in the operation, said Igor Konashenkov. Relatives of the Russian soldiers express a growing concern for their relatives in the Russian army. The rising death toll could damage domestic support.

Russia’s Ministry of Defence has said that 498 Russian soldiers have been killed in Ukraine and 1,597 more sustained wounds, in the first report of casualties by Moscow.

“Unfortunately, we have losses among our comrades who are participating in the operation,” Russian Ministry of Defense spokesperson Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said in a briefing carried on state television.

“I want to emphasize once again that neither conscripts nor cadets of educational institutions of the Russian Ministry of Defense are participating in a special operation,” Konashenkov said. “The information spread by many Western and individual Russian media about the supposedly ‘innumerable’ losses of the Russian force is deliberate disinformation.”

Ukrainian official sources has said that the number of Russian troops killed is far higher. Moscow had previously admitted to losses but without giving any numbers.

It can be stated that the losses of life for the Russian forces are beginning to become noticeable. Relatives of the Russian soldiers express a growing concern for their relatives in the Russian army.

The rising death toll could damage any remaining domestic support for Mr Putins Ukrainian endeavors. Russian memories are long, especially if one states such an obscure reason as “de-Nazification“.
