Russian losses in Ukraine reach 500.000, says France

French Foreign Minister Stéphane Sèjourné stated that France estimates Russia has suffered 500,000 military casualties – both killed and wounded – since its full-scale invasion of Ukraine began.

This figure exceeds Ukrainian military estimates, which recently surpassed 470,000 Russian losses. With over 1,000 new Russian casualties reported daily, the escalating bloodshed shows no signs of abating.

“Russia’s military failure is already evident. Our estimates show 500,000 casualties, including 150,000 killed. And all for what? In short – for nothing,” Sèjourné said in an interview with the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta. Europa.
