Mediazona and BBC News Russian have confirmed the names of 14,709 Russians killed in Ukraine since the start of the full-scale invasion, based on open sources.
Journalists have identified 1,679 people who were killed only in the first two weeks of February. This marks the greatest acceleration in weekly Russian losses since the start of the war, as pointed out by BBC News. The outlet connects this trend with Russia’s new offensive in the Donbas.
For most of 2022, open sources registered 250–300 Russian war casualties per week. This average suddenly began to grow in late December, and doubled by January.
The two publications have also identified 1,121 draftees who were killed after being mobilized by Vladimir Putin’s September decree. Forty percent of this group were killed after January 1, 2023.
