A pro-Kremlin tabloid report stated that nearly 10,000 Russians have been killed in Ukraine as a result of the ongoing invasion.

A Monday report from the New York Post stated that the figures were quickly removed from the report and that the outlet claimed that it had been hacked.

What are the details?

On Monday, Komsomolskaya Pravda, which cited the Russian Ministry of Defense, reported that at least 9,861 Russian troops were killed as a result of the incursion and that more than 16,000 soldiers had been wounded in Ukraine during the invasion.

The report, according to Insider, cited the Russian Ministry of Defense.

Later that day, the organization removed the figures from the website and later issued a statement noting that it had been hacked. According to the Post, the original version of the article was still “accessible in the paper’s online archives.”

Earlier this month, Russia released what it said was an official death toll and stated that just 498 troops had been killed in action and just 1,597 injured.

The New York Times last week issued a report stating that intelligence officials have estimated that approximately 7,000 Russian troops were killed during the war so far.

A Ukrainian spokesperson on Monday claimed that approximately 15,000 Russian troops had been killed. A spokesperson added that approximately 1,300 Ukrainians had been killed as of March 13. Neither number has been independently verified.

Anything else to know about this?

A Sunday report from the the Washington Post stated that Russian soldiers are being killed at a higher rate than Ukrainian troops.

“Russia’s attempt to conquer Ukraine could be headed toward a stalemate as heavy casualties and equipment losses take a toll on unprepared Russian forces that have failed so far to achieve any of their initial objectives, Western officials and military experts say,” the report said.

Morale, the report added, has also been very low among Russian troops in Ukraine.
