Increasing losses – London: Russia expands army with ex-soldiers


In the Ukraine war, Russia is apparently trying to compensate for the increasing loss of soldiers by deploying ex-servicemen. Russia’s armed forces are seeking to bolster their forces with personnel who have retired in the past decade, the Defense Ministry in London said in its regular intelligence update on Twitter on Sunday.

Attempts to increase combat capability include trying to recruit troops in the Russian separatist-controlled region of Transnistria in Moldova, the Defense Intelligence Agency tweet (see below).

Putin spokesman admits “significant losses”.
It is unclear how many Russian soldiers have died since the invasion of Ukraine on February 24. However, President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov admitted to British broadcaster Sky News on Thursday that Russia had suffered “significant losses”.

According to the BBC, between 7,000 and 15,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in the West so far. Ukraine’s “Kyiv Independent” reported on Twitter on Sunday that some 19,300 Russians have already been killed in the fighting, according to the defense ministry in Kiev.

Russian army: more objects destroyed
Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in Moscow reported on Sunday that renewed heavy missile strikes had destroyed dozens of other military objects in Ukraine. A spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry said a total of 86 objects were hit within one day.

In the Dnipropetrovsk region, the headquarters and base of the Dnipro Battalion were destroyed. The base is also said to have served as a rallying point for mercenaries. Launch complexes of the S-300 air defense system were also destroyed at the military airfield in the garrison town of Chuhuiv in the Kharkiv region, as well as several drones, two ammunition depots and three fuel depots in eastern Ukraine. However, this information cannot be verified.
