Kremlin spokesman says Russia’s Defense Ministry publishes data about Russian losses ‘in a timely manner.’ None has been published in over seven months.
The Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called U.S. data on Russian losses in Ukraine “made up.”
“Washington doesn’t have the ability to provide the correct figures. They don’t possess such data. We should only focus on the figures from Russia’s Defense Ministry, which are published in a timely manner, ” reported Peskov.
Earlier, the White House national security spokesperson John Kirby said that 20,000 Russian soldiers had been killed since December 2022, based on U.S. intelligence estimates. Half of the losses were from Wagner Group, according to the U.S. administration. Kirby added that another 80,000 Russian troops have been injured in the past five months.
