"Russian Ministry of Defence and private military contractor (PMC) forces have likely suffered 175-200,000 casualties since the start of the invasion of Ukraine. This likely includes approximately 40-60,000 killed," says Intelligence Service of Ministry of Defense of UK, APA reports.

It has been noted that the Russian casualty rate has significantly increased since September 2022 when ‘partial mobilisation’ was imposed.

"By modern standards, these figures represent a high ratio of personnel killed compared to those wounded.

Artillery has almost certainly inflicted the majority of Russia’s casualties.

Wagner PMC forces have deployed large numbers of convict-recruits. These have probably experienced a casualty rate of up to 50%," says the intelligence service.
