According to NATO, up to 15,000 Russians have killed1 min read
A senior NATO officer told AP News on Wednesday that between 7,000 and 15,000 Russian troops have killed in the month-long invasion of Ukraine.
According to the official, 30,000 to 40,000 Russians are believed to have been killed or injured in the combat.
Russia has not published an official death toll since March 2, when it announced the deaths of 500 of its forces.
To put this in context, Russia lost around 15,000 troops during its 10-year occupation of Afghanistan.
Ukraine has also been evasive about its own deaths, with the country’s president claiming that 1,300 Ukrainian servicemen were killed roughly two weeks ago.
