British intelligence reports that since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the aggressor
has lost up to 200,000 people.
However, a significant part of them occurred due to non-combat reasons.
This is stated in the report of the British Ministry of Defense.
It is emphasized that on March 27, the Russian news channel Telegram reported an "extremely high" number of incidents, crimes and deaths related to alcohol consumption among Russian troops.
"However, since drunkenness is widespread in a large part of Russian society, it has long been considered a tacitly accepted part of military life, even during hostilities," said the British intelligence report.
Other causes of non-combat casualties are also cited as poor weapon handling, traffic accidents, and climatic trauma - such as hypothermia.
"Russian commanders likely view widespread alcohol abuse as particularly detrimental to combat effectiveness," the report added.
Losses of Russia
According to the General Staff, as of February 24, 2022,
the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed 174,550 soldiers
of the army of the Russian Federation.
Another 560 soldiers were eliminated in just one day.
In turn, British Defense Minister Ben
Wallace also spoke about Russia's losses.
So, at least 220,000 Russian soldiers have already died or been wounded in Ukraine.
The company commander of the 92nd separate mechanized brigade Yuriy Fedorenko says that
some units of the Russian army have been defeated by 50-70%
Now the enemy is trying to supplement these units with mobilized units with an insufficient level of training.
Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Malyar said that
the ratio of the losses of the Armed Forces and the occupiers
in the east of Ukraine is 1:10.
