UK Department estimates
Independently, the British Ministry of Defense publishes its own estimates of Russian losses in Ukraine. According to the latest data from July 5, quoted by the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN, Russia since the beginning of the invasion, Ukraine has lost 220,000 soldiers (dead and wounded), more than 2,000 tanks, 80 aircraft, 95 helicopters and more than 1,000 artillery systems.
Moscow does not inform about the losses among its own soldiers, reporting only about the losses of the Ukrainian side. According to analysts, the data provided by Russia and Ukraine regarding losses on the enemy’s side may be inflated.
