On day 23 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, an estimated 14,200 Russian soldiers are said to have been killed since the start of the conflict.
The figure, brought by the Ukrainian defence ministry, is a rare glimpse into the number of lives taken by the war so far, as keeping track of the losses is proving challenging.
On March 3, in a rare update, Moscow claimed 498 of its troops had been killed in combat. It was the only time it released figures.
Meanwhile, US officials said on Thursday the number of Russian casualties could well be over 7,000 – with up to 14,000 wounded.
The deaths include four Russian generals, one of whom, Gen Mityaev, was according to Ukrainian media killed near Mariupol. It sparked questions over why such senior members of the military are so close to the front line.
Ukraine also claimed to have taken down 450 Russian tanks, 93 aircraft and 112 helicopters, as well as disabled 43 anti-aircraft systems.
