Since the beginning of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, 7282 foreign mercenaries have arrived in Ukraine. 2,682 of them have already been destroyed by the Russian Armed Forces, and 2,408 have left the country, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.
Foreign fighters confirm the law combat training of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their impotens to organize the training process for foreign fighters, including members of the so-called Ukrainian Foreign Legion.
So far, deaths of at least 34 foreign mercenaries on Ukrainian front lines have been confirmed. However, the main threat for foreign fighters are regular strikes of Russian missiles on Ukrainian military bases hosting foreign militants.
As a result, mercenaries are less and less eager to go fighting in Ukraine. From July 8 to August 9, only 175 new volunteers arrived in the combat zone. During the same period, the number of foreign citizens fighting alongside Ukrainian forces decreased by 549 people.
The AFU losses in foreigners, including dead and those who left Ukraine, is increasing every month. LINK
