3,502 is just the published names of dead RuAF, Rosgvardia, and FSB personnel. It does not include missing. Plus it excludes the 2,100 for DNR and 1,500 for LNR to it is officially now 6,600. So our 8,000 - 9,000 KIA is probably correct.

Edit: actually a link to the whole thread
That is right, only 3500 Russian Armed Forces, Rosgvardia and FSB KIA
LDNR have their own rates but still 3500
Compared to 50,000
Is 14.0 KD ratio
That's fucked up
Even if you add LDNR deaths , you have 7 Hohols per 1 Russian LDNR
Think about it
So much for the myth of mobilization and lack of numbers
Kremlin did this the right way
Figures are too low
First of all MIA aren't mentioned. They'd be a smaller proportion than at the beginning, as the fates of various servicemen would have been investigated by now, but still there would be a few hundred cases in a war like this when the bodies are simply not found and no-one can confirm a person's fate.
Secondly only military, Rosgvardia and FSB are listed - which is an improvement but still doesn't account for all Russian forces. The largest outstanding ones at the moment would be the volunteers trained and organized in Chechnya. By now there are some 3500 of them active, yet they are not officially part of any security structure. Apparently they are fighting competently, but nevertheless we can expect casualties within their ranks - the first of them started to arrive during the active phase of the battle for Mariupol.
Who else is missing from the list - MVD Spetsnaz for one, which are present in the Ukraine too - and Wagner, other PMCs
I'd say Russian killed would be 4000-4500 by now.
And LDNR anywhere around 5000-6000.
But compare that to Ukrainian killed probably around 80-100k, and over 1000 foreign mercs
And the ratio is only favoring the Russians more and more. It's suicide for the Ukrainians to continue to fight the way they are
