Despite massive support from the international community and deeply entrenched defenses, Ukraine has reportedly lost 8 times more soldiers than Russia since the beginning of the 2022 Invasion of Ukraine.
A new report by Turkish newspaper Hurdesa Haber has claims that, according to Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, a staggering 157,000 Ukrainian soldiers, 2,458 foreign fighters, 5,360 “mercenaries,” and 234 “NATO military trainers” from the United States and United Kingdom have died in Ukraine since the start of the 2022 Invasion of Ukraine by Russia on February 24 of last year.
Comparatively, only 18,480 Russian soldiers are believed to have been killed in the same period, according to the reported data from Israel.
The alleged data was gathered by Israeli intelligence on January 14th of 2023. If accurate, it would signify an overwhelming imbalance of casualties between Russia and its opponents – even with both sides being extremely well armed and equipped for battle.
In addition to this incredible disparity in fatalities, reports from Ukrainian authorities estimate that over 5.9 million civilians have been displaced as a result of the conflict.
Beyond the loss of life, it was reported that Ukraine has lost the following military equipment: 302 aircraft, 212 helicopters, 2,750 UAVs, 6,320 tanks and armored vehicles, 7,360 artillery systems, and 497 Air defense systems. It was also reported that 234,000 Ukrainian soldiers are injured, and another 17,230 held as prisoners of war.
Russia is reported to have lost 23 planes, 56 helicopters, 200 UAVs, 889 tanks and armored vehicles, 427 artillery systems, 12 and Air defense systems. It was reported that 44,500 Russians soldiers have been injured and only 323 held as prisoners of war.
Despite the human losses, the West appears to remain resolute in its commitment to Ukraine, and is currently debating sending long range missiles to the country, after recently agreeing to send dozens of tanks over the next few years.
The conflict began on February 24 of last year after a years long standoff between Russia and Ukraine over disputed territories in the eastern part of the country known as the Donbass. Russia claims it invaded to protect ethnic Russians from imminent Ukrainian state violence, while Kiev and its allies maintain that the invasion was unprovoked.

I just returned 3 weeks ago from Ukraine. Yes, these numbers are probably correct. I’m just glad that I was able to kill 15 Russian soldiers before being injured and sent home. I will possibly return next month as Russia is said to be getting ready for a spring offensive.

Go back tomorrow and stay there. You’re giving Merks a bad name.

Its ‘mercs’ -if you’re referring to the mercenaries who risk life and limb. Gonads required, which you lack, Danny boy.

Yes, I spotted the error and didn’t think it worth fixing. Merc’s are far from heroes Einstein. They love to kill people and that’s why they do what they do. Those people are sick and I’d love to see their psych exams. Most of them are kicked out of the military. The military has no room for blood lust. HELLO? Is there anybody in there?

With complete air control and outgunning Ukraine 15-1 in Artillery this doesn’t surprise me.
One side said Ukraine wouldn’t fight and be rolled over in a month.
Its a year later.
The other side said Russia will run out of ammo, Putin will be overthrown or die of cancer.
Its a year later.
In the USA we had 100,000 Citizens die of overdoses last year.
Let that fact sink in as well.

And we also had 300 thousand vax deaths, what’s your point?

Just remember, Abrams tanks have to be shipped by ship. Russia will have every legal right to sink any ships carrying them. This is going to get nasty.

Are you with the Bidenreich disinformation agency?
February 6, 2023 at 10:49 am
Yeah? What do you think you know about Ukraine? At any rate, it’s none of our business. Just England sucking us into another of their wars. Can you say WWII?

Youre a silly person promulgating nonsesnse. I wonder how profitable this is for you. I assume very.

I presume this evidendcial loss of RU equipment piece by piece is not proving that all figures wrote in this article are rubbish?
