Al menos 50,000 muertes militares rusas en Ucrania

April 17, 2024 - Mas de 50.000 soldados rusos han muerto en Ucrania desde que Moscú invadió a su país vecino en febrero 2022, según datos recopilados por la BBC.

In the second 12 months on the front line – as Moscow pushed its so-called meat grinder strategy – the body count was nearly 25% higher than in the first year.

BBC Russian, independent media group Mediazona and volunteers have been counting deaths since February 2022, using open-source information from official reports and the media, as well as satellite images of Russian cemeteries to estimate the number of new graves.

More than 27,300 Russian soldiers died in the second year of combat – according to the findings – a reflection of how territorial gains have come at a huge human cost.

Russia has declined to comment.

The overall death toll – of more than 50,000 – is eight times higher than the only official public acknowledgement of fatality numbers ever given by Moscow in September 2022.

The actual number of Russian deaths is likely to be much higher, the BBC said.
