Mehr als 20.000 Russen sind in der Ukraine gestorben

May 2, 2023 - Die US schätzen, dass seit Dezember über 20.000 Russen getötet wurden und weitere 80.000 verletzt sind. Mehr als die Hälfte der Toten sind Söldner der Wagner Gruppe.

Half of the dead are from the Wagner mercenary group, who have been attacking the eastern city of Bakhmut.

Russia has been trying to take the small city since last year in a grinding war of attrition.

Moscow currently holds most of Bakhmut, but Ukrainian troops still control a small portion of the city in the west. The fierce battle has taken on huge symbolic importance for both sides.

Ukrainian officials have also said they are using the battle to kill as many of Russia's troops as possible and wear down its reserves, the BBC said.
