During April, the Russian occupation forces lost about 900 Russian invaders every day, approximately the same average daily losses that have been recorded almost since the beginning of this year. However, in May and June, the invaders' losses in manpower are likely to increase.

This will be an inevitable consequence of the resumption of offensive operations by the Russians after a certain decline in activity after the capture of Avdiivka. This forecast was made by the UK Ministry of Defense, citing the findings of British intelligence.

Thus, in April, Russia lost an average of 899 occupants killed and wounded daily. These figures have been relatively stable in recent months. However, the situation may soon change in an unfavorable direction for the invaders.

"It is likely that Russia's casualties will increase over the next two months again as they resume special offensive operations in eastern Ukraine. This follows a slight decline in the pace of operations over the past two months following the fall of Avdiivka," the British Defense Ministry said in a statement.

In total, since the beginning of the full-scale aggression against Ukraine, Russia has lost more than 465,000 of its military killed and wounded on the battlefield. And, as the British Ministry of Defense has to admit, the value of human life in Russia is perceived in a completely different way than in the civilized world. Therefore, in more than two years of full-scale war, the aggressor state has adapted to a grueling war and achieved success on the battlefield not by the quality of the troops but by the human mass, which is usually preferred over quality.

"This dependence on mass will almost certainly continue throughout the war in Ukraine and will have long-term consequences for the future of the Russian army," the British Ministry of Defense summarized.

Earlier, British intelligence said that the FSB had interrogated another Shoigu deputy as part of a high-profile corruption case. It is about Ruslan Tsalikov, the First Deputy Minister of Defense, who has been a close associate of Sergei Shoigu for several decades. Russian opposition media have conducted numerous investigations into the mysterious origins of Tsalikov's and his family's extraordinary wealth, but unlike the inferior Timur Ivanov, who has already been imprisoned, Russian investigators have no claims against Shoigu's "right hand man" so far at least publicly.
