On February 7, Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergei Shoigu held conference call with the leadership of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
In his speech, Russian Army General revealed that the losses of the Ukrainian military in January amounted to more than 6.5 thousand servicemen.
Despite military assistance to the AFU from Western countries, the Russian military is inflicting heavy losses to the Ukrainian Army. As for the military equipment, in January 2023 alone, the AFU lost:
- 26 warplanes,
- 7 helicopters,
- 208 UAVs,
- 341 tanks and other armored fighting vehicles,
- 40 combat vehicles of multiple rocket launchers.
The head of the Russian military department noted that the United States and its allies are trying to prolong the conflict in Ukraine.
“To do this, they have started supplying heavy offensive weapons, openly calling on Ukraine to seize our territories. In fact, such steps involve NATO countries in the conflict and can lead to an unpredictable level of escalation,” the Russian Defense Minister said.
In their turn, Russian forces continue to grind all weapons and equipment supplied to Kiev both on its delivery routes and in combat positions.
“Realizing that it will not be possible to defeat Russia by military means, the Ukrainian leadership continues to resort to criminal actions to intimidate citizens in the new Russian regions. The armed forces of Ukraine strike residential areas, hospitals, places where civilians are gathering, commit terrorist acts targeting state and social facilities,” Shoigu said.
The Minister reminded that the Ukrainian side refused to cease fire during the Orthodox Christmas, and the Ukrainian military conducted intense shelling during the holiday. In total, the AFU fired over 550 artillery and mortar shells. Ukrainian artillery was suppressed by the return fire of Russian troops.
The Russian Minister confirmed that in January 2023, as a result of the offensive actions of Russian troops in the Donetsk and Zaporozhye directions, the settlements of Soledar, Kleshcheyevka, Podgornoye, Krasnopolye, Blagodatnoye, Lobkovoye and Nikolaevka were liberated. Currently, military operations are successfully developing in the areas of Ugledar and Artemovsk (also known as Bakhmut).

The end of Western imperialism is an ugly ugly beast going down in flames. Ukraine like Afghanistan and Taiwan will be their graveyards. Good riddance to this stinking attempt at being Nazi Germany 2.0
Western authorities are not keen on fraud or corruption either this problem is bigger/different than just ‘western imperialism’ after the shooting stops the trials and investigations can get rolling and a lot of discovery can happen followed by charges getting filed and prosecutions. Be thorough and get to the bottom of all of it
Are you for real? Were you in another galaxy when the US destroyed Iraq? Try the Google and look up something commonly referred to as “the Vietnam War”.

All the global institutions are in the hands of those who promote US imperialism. There will never be any international trial of the US actions. But he’s right when he says it’s not just imperialism. The main pb is in what we/they call ‘democracy’. Today we are told that a democracy means a electoral process based on votes. But it’s false. When you are voting, you choose “the best”. The greek translation of “the best” is “Aristos”. The voting system is de-facto aristocratic. It leads us to professional politicians. The Athenian democracy wasn’t perfect but included a main difference : the randomization. The politician wasn’t elected by a vote but randomly chosen between all the citizens. It means those who were in power weren’t professional politicians. This is why the politicians/traitors accepted the FED in 1913 and the “money as debt” based order.
“Western authorities are not keen on fraud or corruption…”
If this is not sarcasm then you are in need of serious medication
How can ukraine still have so many warplanes after all this time?
Are they operating from nato territory so they cannot be destroyed on the ground? Where there hidden somewhere and pulled out of hiding recently?
Who said they’re operating? Do you know if the machines in this tally are alleged to have been destroyed in the air or on the ground?
They are. They have some few.
Its because You are stupid.
Well i am used to see us war. They attack destroy everything. March in with their forces once there is no restistance left. I thought russia would do the same since it was successfull in iraq and yugoslavia who both never even dared to attack the us ships infront of their coast.
But nice that extent of your superior aryan intelect by using insults…
Yeah, Yugoslav war was strange. Attacking those US ships off the Yugoslavia coast were legal and would have been great politcal and propaganda victory. 2-3 rockets and the battleship is fish food.
Sure. And pigs can fly 😆😆😆
I knew your ukranazi ass was going to be on here. I bet you called BS on the other article too.
Your words carry no weight. I’ve seen countless videos of Ukrainian tanks and armour destroyed, corpses strewn across battlefields and trenches.
Where is your photographic and video evidence that UA is advancing? There would be aftermath evidence of it if they were indeed making any progress.
They’re definitely advancing: Straight to the graveyard by the hundreds DAILY where they can meet their nazi hero Bandera.
US and UK have been killing and genocide 6 million of innocent peoples in the Middle East.
In the First World War and in the Second World War the Anglo-Saxons were decimated, exterminated, they lost the best elements, the DNA pool has been compromised!!!!!, for a fistful of dollars more by these crazy idiotic masters in power. The counter-proof, if you don’t believe, why are the UK and the USA in decline faster than other western countries?
As usual You dont compare with the rest of the world. USA is slightly declining. UK is not doing well.
Typical oneeyed infection by You using one eyes only or less.
Almost all parts of the world has been declinng by normal ups and down, covid and the Russian infection.
Even China is not doing as well as they has hoped for.
You say, but it seems to me that you are not neutral. The UK and the USA are very impoverished! They are approaching the third world! In Los Angeles there are slums km long.
US is massively declining, just like the USSR.
I’ve told you many times to tone it down on Press TV, but you disregard my suggestions? Are you this brainwashed to overlook reality? How do we sort you out? So you don’t end up ridiculing Iran publicly in front of everyone?
Iran is a shithole capital of the world.
I don’t comment on Press TV you lunatic!
Thats fine. Earth quakes might help too.
However, Syrians and Iraqis were killing each other long before NATO existed.
Was that region known to be particularly violent under the 400 years of Ottoman rule? How are those Holodomor documents coming? I am literally vibrating with anticipation!
There were some clan fighting back then. But Soviet Union did the same like the US is doing right now!

So, this is a data point from the official russian defense ministry. This stands in a somewhat stark contrast to what we could read about reports from israelian and turkeys sides (https://southfront.org/ukrainian-general-israeli-intelligence-reveal-ukrainian-russian-losses-reports/).
Taking the latter, the losses on average should have been around 250’000 to 400’000 per year, thus 20’000 to 30’000 per month.
What the russian defense ministry reports about january 2023 is thus at about 1/3 to 1/5 of the average…
…OR the stipulated average is about 3 to 5 fold above the real average.
From the two news reports alone (inclusive their links to external sources), it is impossible for me to tell which version being more near reality.
Of course, january 2023 could have been an exceptionally week performance of the russian side… But: Judging from the propagandistic main line, that january should have been rather strong in comparison to previous months, were we saw so many (three) big defeats.
Thus: I’m not really sure what to think of those reports after all…
People like him has had no contact to the rest of the world Russia included for years.
Maybe it’s confirmed kills?
Derp? Derp derp.
Strong argument you retarded cock sucker. A year ago you tried to post what seemed like semi coherent sentences, now it’s just outright the most low quality spam you’ll find anywhere on the net. Different side of the same coin as the ukroshills.
Take a deep breath. Grab a pair of your mom’s panties. Dry your tears.
He says that the Holodomor never existed and Ukrainians as a nation don’t exist. For sure, I dislike Hitler, Azov and the radical neoliberals of Kyiv but that doesn’t mean that Holodomor didn’t happen and that Ukrainians don’t exist.
Yeah. So it was either a subpar month by an enormous factor or the previously mentioned kill rates were inflated to begin with. So the much hyped meat grinder of Artemovsk amounts to an average of 78.000 deaths per year?
Presumably the defence minister is quoting verifiable data. The statistics however questionable are frightening. We are talking about KIA/WIA rates much higher than the second world war casualty rates on the western battlefields. Where are the Metternichs and Talleyrands to end this nonsense? We need a pan European congress to resolve this to avoid more and more bloodshed.
As usual, the forces of evil are being slaughtered. Call them, if you like, defeats.
A voice from the past.
Typical russian. So far their communication lines has not rapported any own losses.
Russia seemes to be runned by Youtube.
Runned! That’s a new one. The Mossad file on losses seems accurate, what’s the problem?
I don’t agree with Jens Holm opinions but I respect his right to express them: but Jens its reported not rapported and as William notes it’s not runned. It should be ‘run by’ and change the name it sounds like a 1970s adult actor’s nom de plume.
I am a bit surprised. 6.500 are just more than 200 a day. I always heard about 500-1000/daily. Ukros are running out of men?
Both sides exaggerate the losses in men and material. Actual losses are generally a fraction of these numbers. Exaggeration happens in any war.
As ‘V for Victory’ writes , the number of losses per day is sinking , which is plausible , because the Ukrainians cannot send more troops there to be destroyed. The other reason can be some improvement in the NATO strategy , which saves their soldiers. At last there are always exaggerations , deceit and lies in times of war, that’s why nothing is really confirmed and exact. I believe though , the number of Ukrainian losses given by the Israelis , Turks and Americans is on the whole correct (even if not exact).

now all I can do is pay mulatto tranny for sodomy lesson
All armies do exaggerate enemy losses and both Ukrainian and Russian armed forces are not making any exception at all.
Soviet dictator Stalin claimed during Finnish-Russo Winter War in mid Feb 1940 that “we are already killed 60 000 Finnish white fascists”. Actually Finnish losses where at that time 14 000 KIA and DOW. In Red Squore, early Nov 1941 Stalin claimed that “German fascists has lost 4500 000 men”. At that time German military personal losses had been little bit over 800 000 KIA, MIA and WIA. So truly Russian tradition has been to wildly exaggerate enemy losses. Same happening now in Ukraine.
Now Russia is democratic, not Stalinist.
When it comes to Soviet own losses during Winter War the official Soviet narrative was only 48 000 deaths. Finns claimed 200 000 deaths. In 1990s Krivosheev confirmed 126 000 Soviet soldiers been killed. 2013 study based of database of Soviet military personal losses gave numbers with names of soldiers who died during Winter War: 167 976. Information published by Pavel Petrov. So at the end Soviet losses were much nearer to Finnish claim that what official Soviet narrative was in1940-1991.
Finns were correct back then. They wanted to protect their country from the Stalinist menace.
Evgeny Prigozhin, the owner of Russia’s Wagner Group, told journalists on Thursday that the mercenary company has stopped recruiting prisoners to fight in the war in Ukraine.
“The recruitment of prisoners into Wagner Group has completely stopped. All obligations to those who currently work for us are being fulfilled,” Prigozhin said. He did not provide a reason for why the practice is ending.
On Wednesday, the independent outlet Agentstvo reported that Russian authorities have been pressuring prisoners into joining Wagner Group by threatening to open new criminal cases against them, while earlier this week, the independent news site Mediazona published a report detailing Wagner’s difficulties recruiting prisoners in recent months amid rumors about the group’s high casualty rates.
Late last year Wagner recruiters began traveling the prison circuit again — and this time, thanks to the “inmate grapevine,” they’ve had much less success. In response, Prigozhin’s other private army — his network of pro-Kremlin media outlets — have launched a PR campaign in a bid to put the focus back on Wagner’s “success stories.”.
Prigozhin is national capitalist in ideology, like Videla, Banzer and Pinochet.
I’m very skeptical when it comes to claims of military losses. For instance what RF MoD has claimed or what NATO forces of RF losses.
“Russian losses are beginning to approach around 180,000 dead or wounded soldiers,” Norwegian Chief of Defence Eirik Kristoffersen said in an interview with TV2, without specifying how the numbers were calculated.”
Russia, NATO and Ukraine can claim what ever. Perhaps in 2030s we will finally know true figures of military personal and material losses.
These news are bad for us Europeans. Many people hate Ukraine here, however, Ukraine supports Serbia, but on the other hand, Ukraine also supports Turkey, Azerbaijan and those that say that Macedonia is not Greek but Vardaskan.
