As the number of victims in Ukraine grows, the losses will become more and more obvious.
In the first three months of the war in Ukraine, the death toll in Russia is probably the same as that of the Soviet Union during its nine-year war in Afghanistan.
This is stated in the daily review of British intelligence about the war, which is published by the British Ministry of Defense.
A combination of poor low-level tactics with limited air cover, a lack of flexibility and a team approach that is willing to amplify setbacks and repeat mistakes has led to this high casualty rate, which continues to rise during the offensive in Donbass.
TIntelligence notes: The Russian public has in the past been sensitive to losses incurred during wars of choice. Therefore, as the number of victims in Ukraine grows, the losses will become more obvious, and public dissatisfaction with the war and the desire to voice it may increase.
Earlier, the chief diplomat of the European Union, Josep Borrell, said that if the figures and reports are confirmed, then Russian troops could set a world record for the losses of the army that made the invasion.
