Russia is preparing to deploy reserve units in Donbas

Russian authorities have not announced the total number of military casualties in Ukraine since March 25.

However, the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) publishes data on casualties for DPR forces. By June 16, the DPR had recognized 2,128 military casualties and 8,897 wounded since the beginning of 2022.

The DPR casualty rate is equivalent to about 55 percent of its original forces, highlighting the extreme exhaustion of Russian and pro-Russian forces in Donbas.
