The British Minister of Defense Grant Shaps said today that Russia is stepping up its invasion of Ukraine and sending more Russians to their deaths than at any time since the war began.

"Putin is stepping up his invasion and senselessly sending more Russians to die than at any time since the war began." Ukrainian bravery and Western support is holding back their progress, but we cannot be complacent. Ukraine needs our unwavering support to fight and win," Shaps wrote on the X platform.

British intelligence said today that the past six weeks have seen probably the highest rate of Russian casualties in the war so far. The major losses were mainly caused by the Russian offensive in Donbas, the city of Avdiivka, reports Ukrinform.

During November 2023, Russian casualties, as reported by the Ukrainian General Staff, averaged 931 per day.
