Russian army suffers heaviest losses over past six weeks - British intelligence
British intelligence believes that the Ukrainian General Staff's data on Russian army losses in manpower is plausible. Over the past six weeks, they have become record-breaking due to the offensive on Avdiivka
This is stated in a report by the UK Ministry of Defence.
It is noted that during November, losses in the Russian army, according to the Ukrainian General Staff, averaged 931 people per day.
Earlier, the highest number of casualties for Russia was in March 2023, with an average of 776 losses per day, at the height of the Russian offensive on Bakhmut.
“Although Defence Intelligence cannot verify the methodology, taken as a total including both killed and wounded, the figures are plausible,” the British Ministry of Defence says in a statement.
According to British intelligence, the past six weeks have probably seen some of the highest Russian casualties of the entire war.
“The heavy losses have largely been caused by Russia’s offensive against the Donbas town of Avdiivka,” British intelligence emphasizes.
- According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as of November 27, the occupiers' losses in manpower reached 325,580 people.
