Russian authorities have not released figures on Russian deaths in Ukraine since March 25.
However, the separatist-controlled Donetsk People’s Republic publishes figures for its forces. As of June 16, they acknowledged 2,828 active-duty military dead, and 8,897 wounded, since the start of the year.
The loss figures make up 55 percent of their original strength, according to British intelligence.
– This confirms the enormous wear and tear that the Russian and pro-Russian forces are experiencing in the Donbass, it was reported.
The ministry concluded that the separatist forces in Donetsk may also be equipped with outdated weapons, and it is possible that the prospects for sending reserve forces to the front will become more and more decisive for the outcome of the war.
