Forty thousand Russian troops have been killed in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion began nearly six months ago, the Ukrainian army claimed on Wednesday.
According to a press release from Ukrainian General Staff, at least 40,070 Russian soldiers have so far been killed during the war in Ukraine. In addition, it is claimed that about 1,000 Russian soldiers were captured.
Ukrainian and allied intelligence assessments vary widely as to exactly how many Russian forces have been killed to date. But even the lowest estimates are in the thousands.
