The number of soldiers killed or injured in the Ukraine war is approaching the 500,000 mark. The New York Times reports, citing US officials. Accordingly, so far 120,000 Russian soldiers died and up to 180,000 others injured been.

On the Ukrainian side, around 70,000 soldiers are said to have been killed and up to 120,000 injured. According to the report, the US officials made it clear that the losses were difficult to quantify because Russia always gave too low numbers and Ukraine did not announce any official figures. However, since the start of the bloody Ukrainian counter-offensive, which has lasted three months, the number of casualties has risen steadily.

The Russian Advantage: The troop strength ratio is nearly three to one. The Ukrainians have around 500,000 soldiers at their disposal, the Russians a total of more than 1.3 million. (tsp)
