The Russian army has suffered heavy losses in the Donbas, with the death toll reaching 2,000 soldiers, said National Security Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko at a briefing on Friday, September 5, reports Ukrainska Pravda.

“We can estimate the number of wounded by multiplying the number killed by four,” he said.

According to Lysenko, the wounded Russian soldiers are being treated in military hospitals in St. Petersburg, Rostov, Volgograd and Yeysk.

Lysenko also reported that the Russian army is supplying new equipment and soldiers to the Donbas and removing its dead and wounded.

Two columns of military equipment from Russia have arrived by way of Dibrovka in the direction of Dmytrivka in the Donetsk Oblast: “20 tanks, 9 Grad rocket launchers, armored personnel carriers, 13 KAMAZ tilt trucks and dozens of Ural vehicles with staff,” he said. Going in the opposite direction were 4 KAMAZ trucks and 6 cars filled with the dead and wounded, he added.

Lysenko also reported that ” at night in the tunnels of one of the mines in the Chervonopartyzansk region in the Luhansk Oblast, Russian soldiers dropped several dozen bodies they were transporting in two KAMAZ vehicles in order to conceal their military losses,” he said.

      Who knows??. During the RuSSian colonial aggression campaign in Chechnya, in the 1990s, RuSSia hid thousands of casualties among RuSSian Federal colonial troops. It was after several years that the truth about Chechnya began to emerge. However, until now, it’s still a mystery of how many RuSSian colonial troops died in the colonial aggression in Chechnya. Colonial rulers in Moscow, and their General Staff of RuSSian Armed Forces reported that their casualties in Chechnya in 3.826 troops killed, 17.892 wounded, and 1.906 missing. Meanwhile, former defense minister Sergei Ivanov reported that casualties in Chechnya were 4.572 killed and 15.549 wounded. Even so, there are skepticism about the reliability of the information provided by Moscow colonial rulers in the Kremlin. Probably, there were more casualties among RuSSian colonial troops, but some of them were buried in order to hide evidence and reduce the number of casualties. This practice was reported in Donbas.
      Pathetic RuSSia.
      Stop Vladimir Russolini Putler.

      Don’t worry, I will reply to your post to me, and watch: I will do it without throwing personal insults at you, something you Ukrainians clearly can not do.

      Who knows, what, exactly?
      What does Russian “aggression campaign” have to do with this conflict? What you are forgetting is the start of the conflict in Chechnya….and why does any Ukrainian consistently bring that up?

      Nice copy paste, actually….for a second I thought it was a viable post but all it is is a copy paste. Try again please. Great way to represent your people too, Conan. Talk to me again in a year or two when your country will be begging for help from Russia…..again. Learn some history before you make your self look silly or post something you think sounds smart.

    Forthcoming Putin announcement: “Ukraine fails to provide adequate safety measures for Russian-speaking holidaymakers”.

      I thought they were going to use the line that those died in Ukraine arrive there “accidentally”.

    I hate to talk statistics, because all of these guys are people – on both sides of the fence. They have families, wives and children…who have lost their husbands, sons and fathers. But I just read in the Washington Post that there has only been about 875 (somewhere around there) Ukrainian casualties. 2000 Russian deaths compared to 875 Ukrainian? Man, Ukrainians are holding fort, with little more than sticks and stones compared to brand new tanks and rockets on their end. God is on our side!

    But, as I said, Ukrainians still need to hold down the fort. So would you please join me in supporting my husband’s squad, of which he’s a commanding officer.
