50,000 Russians killed or wounded, British say


Russia has lost more than 30 percent of its land combat power in Ukraine, but military problems will not prompt regime change in the invading country, a senior British military official said on Sunday.

The chief of defence staff, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, dismissed any suggestion that Russian President Vladimir Putin could be overthrown or assassinated as “wishful thinking”. But he said Ukraine’s aggressive defense, aided by NATO weapons, thwarted Russia’s plans for a quick victory.

“This effectively means that 50,000 Russian soldiers were killed or wounded in this conflict,” Radakin told the BBC. “Nearly 1,700 Russian tanks were destroyed and nearly 4,000 armored combat vehicles belonging to Russia were destroyed.”

Despite this, Putin’s regime is considered stable, and the Russian president continues to crack down on the opposition with ease, Radhakin said. He said Russia’s hierarchy was “invested” in Putin, removing an incentive to challenge his authority.

► The Attorney General of Ukraine says more than 1,000 Ukrainian children were killed or injured in the war. Deaths: 352. Most of the victims among the children were from the competitive Donetsk region.

► The White House has warned that Russia is trying to obtain “offensive-capable” drones from Iran and said it has intelligence that Russian officials visited an airport in central Iran at least twice to view weapons-capable drones.

► Ukraine reported that at least 17 civilians were killed Saturday in Russian missile strikes and nationwide shelling.
