10.000 Russian soldiers have already taken part in the war in Eastern Ukraine
The wounded Russian are sent to garrisons with closed access mode, in particular to Saint Petersburg and Rostov-on-Don. The deputy head of information-analytical centre of national Security and Defense Council Volodymyr Poleviy reported this.
‘According to the data of our reconnaissance, about 2000 of Russian soldiers have already died in this conflict. The number of wounded can be estimated only approximately by multiplying this figure in four – thus we get 8 000 of wounded and 2 000 of killed – in total about 10 000 people have already passed through conflict on Donbas. According to Poleviy Russia manages to conceal this fact because it occupies vast territories.
Poleviy mentioned that that wounded Russian are being hidden in hospitals in Saint Petersburg, Volgograd, Yeysk and Rostov-on-Don.
‘Today we register a tendency when wounded are being sent to closed garrisons across territory of Russian federation. Neither journalists nor relatives are not allowed there’. He also added that thus Russia manages to conceal the real number of losses among its citizens.
