The Kremlin has suffered huge loses of their troops as a defence analyst has suggested that Vladimir Putin has had “100,000 casualties in 105 days” since the war started on 24 February.
The Ukrainian Embassy in Finland suggested that around 31,500 Russian troops have been killed in action, but defence analyst Nicholas Drummond said that “even if [the figures] are over optimistic, they are unlikely to significantly overestimate actual losses.”

Russian commanders are ‘shooting up’ tired troops as they have ‘no strength left’ and are ‘demoralised’ and ‘just want to go home’
He added, “If Russia has 30,000 dead, it will likely have a further 60,000-70,000 injured.
“That’s 100,000 casualties… in 105 days.”
During war time it is always hard to know the exact number of deaths and injuries, however this is bad news for Putin and the Kremlin.
Ukrainian intelligence have suggested that Russia has lost more than 200 aircraft, 1,400 tanks, 3,400 armoured personnel vehicles, 2,400 vehicles and fuel tanks along with 700 artillery systems.
But “these numbers have not been verified,” Drummond added whilst Ukrainian officials stressed that these number are only “preliminary numbers.”
However he added that even if the figures have been somewhat overestimated, they still remain “mind boggling.”
Writer Rohin Nagrani added, “The numbers are truly staggering even if remotely true.”
