Over 50,000 Russian soldiers have lost their lives since the start of the war

Russia's military death toll in Ukraine has now surpassed 50,000, the BBC reports. BBC Russian, independent media group Mediazona and volunteers have counted the deaths since February 2022. New graves in the cemetery helped provide the names of many soldiers.

More than 27,300 Russian soldiers died in the second year of fighting - according to BBC findings, a reflection of how territorial gains have come at a heavy human cost.

Russia has refused to comment on the figures published in the media. The total death toll - of more than 50,000 - is eight times higher than the only official public acknowledgment of death tolls ever given by Moscow in September 2022.

In February, President Volodymyr Zelensky said 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers had been killed - but estimates, based on US intelligence, suggest higher losses./ CNA
