The average number of Russian deaths in Ukraine each month was 25 times higher than the number of people killed per month during the Russian war in Chechnya and 35 times higher than in Afghanistan, says analysis from CSIS. It is noted that from February 2022 to February 2023, at least 60,000-70,000 Russian soldiers died in Ukraine, and Russia suffered approximately 200,000 to 250,000 soldiers wounded, killed, or gone missing during the year of war. In Ukraine, the Russian army loses at least 5,000 to 5,800 soldiers every month. At the same time, for almost 15 years of war in Chechnya, from 13,000 to 25,000 soldiers died, at a rate of 95 to 185 soldiers per month. In Afghanistan, the Soviet Union lost 14,000-16,000 soldiers during the 10-year war, an average of about 130 to 145 killed monthly. In addition, during the war in Ukraine, Russia has lost approximately 50% of its modern T-72B3 and T-72B3M main battle tanks and about two-thirds of its T-80BV/U tanks.
