The United States estimates that the number of Russian casualties in Ukraine has so far reached about 15,000 killed and perhaps 45,000 injured, CIA director William Burns said Wednesday, warning Kiev has also suffered significant losses.
“The latest US intelligence estimates would be something in the neighborhood of 15,000 (Russian troops) killed and maybe three times that wounded. So quite a number of losses,” Burns said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.
“And the Ukrainians have suffered too – probably a little less than that. But you know, there have been significant casualties.”
