British intelligence names reasons behind significant Russian losses in Ukraine
The UK Defense Ministry said this in its latest intelligence update on the situation in Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.
It is noted that over the past two weeks, Russia has likely suffered its highest rate of casualties since the first week of the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
“The Ukrainian General Staff release daily statistics on Russian casualties. Although Defence Intelligence cannot verify Ukraine’s methodology, the trends the data illustrate are likely accurate,” the report says.
The Defense Ministry said that the mean average for the last seven days was 824 casualties per day, over four times the rate reported over June-July 2022.
“The uptick in Russian casualties is likely due to a range of factors including lack of trained personnel, coordination, and resources across the front – this is exemplified in Vuhledar and Bakhmut,” the report says.
In its previous intelligence update, the UK Defense Ministry said that the regular Russian military has likely deployed in Ukraine the vast majority of the reservists called up under partial mobilisation, and they need to conduct a further form of mobilisation so that they can continue the war.
