Vladimir Evseev, a military expert at the Institute of CIS Countries, said that the ratio of losses among the Russian military is about 1 to 20.
Earlier, Andrei Kartapolov, chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, said that the Ministry of Defense does not update the statistics on those killed during Russian special operation, because Russia has practically ceased to suffer losses.
According to Evseev, the Russian Armed Forces have wounded and dead, but the figure of 1 to 20 speaks of the quality of the RF Armed Forces and that Russia knows how to conduct military operations.
“Our losses are not 500 or 1000. But 1 to 20 is the most modest estimate. The enemy’s losses may be more,” Yevseev said in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
The expert said that Volodymyr Zelensky should worry about losses among the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Yevseev noted that Zelensky began to increase the numbers only because he could no longer hide the truth.
"Ukrainian propaganda has simply lied and is discrediting itself in the eyes of the local population," Yevseev is sure.
According to the expert, the losses of the RF Armed Forces are serious, but not critical. Evseev added that he is in solidarity with the military-political leadership of Russia on the need to help the families of the dead military.
“I had to visit the families of the dead soldiers of the 76th Airborne Division who fought in Chechnya, I saw it all. Therefore, I express my deep condolences to the wounded and the families of the dead. But be that as it may, our losses should not be exaggerated,” he said.
In conclusion, Yevseev said that in the current conditions, when Western weapons are being delivered and more and more sanctions are being imposed on Russia, the NMD in Ukraine is more than successful. The expert is sure that Russia will definitely win.
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said during a meeting with journalists that Kyiv could be Russia's ultimate goal in the special military operation in Ukraine
