Russia has “suffered” their “highest rate of casualties since the first week of the invasion” which started on 24 February 2022.

This is yet another huge blow for Vladimir Putin as he is suffering 824 casualties per day, which is more than four times what was reported on June and July last year.

The British Minister of Defence said, “Over the past two weeks, Russia has likely suffered its highest rate of casualties since the first week of the invasion of Ukraine.

“The Ukrainian General Staff release daily statistics on Russian casualties. Although Defence Intelligence cannot verify Ukraine’s methodology, the trends the data illustrate are likely accurate.

“The mean average for the last seven days was 824 casualties per day, over four times the rate reported over June-July 2022.

“Ukraine also continues to suffer a high attrition rate.

“The uptick in Russian casualties is likely due to a range of factors including lack of trained personnel, coordination, and resources across the front – this is exemplified in Vuhledar and Bakhmut.”

Ukrainian officials believe that Putin is set to launch a massive Spring offensive in the coming days and Ukraine’s presidential advisor Anton Gerashchenko warned there will be further “threats of massive Russian rocket attacks.”

Ukrainian Defense Intelligence does not believe Moscow has “sufficient resources” to “launch a large scale offensive.”

Andriy Cherniak, a representative of Ukrainian military intelligence, told the Kyiv Post, “While information is spreading about a large-scale Russian offensive planned for February 24, Ukrainian military intelligence reports that Russia has already launched a full-scale offensive on February 24 last year, which continues today.”

However Cherniak does believe that Putin is planning to intensify his efforts in the east of Ukraine over the coming weeks, adding, that now Moscow are “trying to find weaknesses in our defense.”

He said, “However, according to our information, the Russian command does not have sufficient resources for large-scale offensive operations.

“The main goal of the Russian troops remains to achieve at least some tactical success in eastern Ukraine.”

Cherniak added, “Russia is facing a shortage of high-precision weapons, and despite this, it will continue to use missile terror against the civilian population in Ukraine.

“The Russians have already used more than 80% of high-precision missiles. They are trying to resume their production, but so far they have not succeeded.”
