Britain estimates Russia’s losses in Ukraine at 50,000 killed and wounded

Russia launched this invasion with ambitions to take over all of Ukraine, but fails and becomes a less powerful nation than it was in early February.

Russia has lost more than 30% of its ground combat potential in five months of a full-scale invasion, which gives the Ukrainian army confidence in its victory .

This was stated by the head of the British Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Tony Radakin, reports The Guardian .

“They are absolutely clear that they plan to return all their territory on Ukraine’s terms, and they see a Russia that has problems. A Russia that, according to our estimates, has lost more than 30% of its ground combat capability,” he said.play video

Radakin noted that we are talking about the loss of 50,000 Russian soldiers who died or were wounded, almost 1,700 destroyed Russian tanks, almost 4,000 armored combat vehicles.

“Russia started this invasion with ambitions to take over all of Ukraine, Russia had ambitions to take over big cities in the first 30 days, Russia had ambitions to split and pressure NATO – this Russia is a challenge to the world order. Russia is failing in all of these ambitions. Russia is less powerful nation than it was at the beginning of February,” said the British admiral.

  1. Such comments should not be made public. I don’t see how they help the defenders at a time when they need dramatically increased help, not a scale back.

    This is not enough! Many more cockroaches must get killed and their material destroyed. Our victory must come quickly and thoroughly. Only this will bring peace, especially a lasting one.

    • There is good reason to believe there is a higher percentage of wounded on the Invader side than on the Ukrainian side. Foremost I would suspect is the home field advantage and support systems.
      Wounded are about 3-to-1 to deaths but they could be 4-to-1 with Russia. And, we know their support is much worse, Chechens killed wounded and other officers killed the wounded. Then it’s possible the ratio is more like 5-to-1 or worse.
      Consider 40,000 dead that would translate into 50,000 dead and likely 200,000 wounded Invaders.

      • Yes, that’s right, Red. There have been a few reports about their deplorable medical system. Even their first aid packs are on Third-world level.
