Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Ukrainian army losses amounted to 8,000 soldiers last November.

The Russian official added that Ukrainian losses in November amounted to 5 aircraft, 10 helicopters, 149 tanks and about 300 armored vehicles.

This occurred during a video conference meeting with the Russian Defense Ministry on the course of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine.

Regarding the course of the battles in the Donbass region, Shoigu said that the Russian military continues to liberate Donbass from Ukrainian forces.

In November, Western media reports reported an increase in military and civilian death tolls on the Russian and Ukrainian sides.

In the latest toll of these losses since the war broke out last February, Washington revealed that the casualties of the Russia-Ukraine war have exceeded 200,000 soldiers.

100 thousand dead and wounded Russian soldiers.

Probably 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers.

40 thousand Ukrainian civilians.

Convert between 15 and 30 million Ukrainians into refugees.

Milley’s statements provide the highest US estimate of the number of casualties so far in the conflict that has been going on for about 9 months, and comes at a time when the conflict between Ukraine and Russia could see a potential lull this winter , which, according to experts, can provide an opportunity to sit down at the negotiating table.
