Official KIA , well slightly higher than my estimate, but close and lower than expected
Over the month, the losses of Ukrainian troops amounted to about 30 thousand people, including more than 14 thousand irretrievable and about 16 thousand sanitary.
Yes , Ukraine WIA are much higher, and could be more KIA but Russia BDA has been spot on
I imagine it's an underestimate
First of all its just confirmed KIA. Many might still be missing and not confirmed yet whether killed, wounded, or taken prisoner. When you're smoked by artillery there's often no way to confirm either way.
I'd imagine we have hundreds more KIA in actuality this way
Secondly it's MoD figures, so it shouldn't include Rosgvardia (and other security organs), and definitely doesn't include fallen DNR/LNR fighters
Rosgvardia and others probably taken up to 50-100 KIA so far. It hard to tell
As for DNR/LNR, it's not Russian forces admittedly, but Russian allies
Thirdly, some of the wounded will die, this is also inevitable.
Dunno how many. 5-10% of them perhaps? Again this is hundreds.
As for Russian estimates of Ukrainian KIA/WIA, their guess is as good as anyone else's. But looks like an underestimate as well.
