British intelligence officers claim that the Russians have suffered their worst losses since the beginning of the war in the last six weeks
The past six weeks have been marked by some of Russia's biggest losses since the start of the war in Ukraine, Ukrinform reported, citing the British Ministry of Defense's daily intelligence briefing published on the X social network.
It is noted that in the current month, according to the data of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Army, the casualties given by the Russian soldiers are in the range of 931 people per day.
"By far the deadliest month for Russia was March this year, with an average of 776 deaths per day. At that time, the Russian advance towards Bakhmut reached its peak," the agency points out.
According to the British Ministry of Defence, although intelligence cannot confirm the methodology used to calculate the total number of dead and wounded, the reported figures are reliable.
"For the past six weeks, Russia appears to have suffered its heaviest losses since the beginning of the war so far. "Many of the casualties are mainly the result of the Russian offensive against the city of Avdeevka in Donbas," the report states.
