Quote from The Sun:
Russia has kept its true death toll under wraps and on March 2 admitted to just 498 deaths.

But in an extraordinary move, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported that according to the Russian defence ministry 9,861 Russian soldiers have died in Ukraine and 16,153 injured.

The report was quickly taken down though several screenshots were taken including by the Wall Street Journal.
Who ever put up the data had better watch his back.

The newspaper is now claiming it was hacked, but if that’s true it was an unusually subtle piece of work.

The "I was hacked, honest" line seems to have become the default excuse when someone realises they pressed 'submit' without thinking too far ahead

Lack of components force Russian manufacturer to stop producing tanks.

He is correct, but making NATO get off the fence could either give Putin Ukraine after all the hell that it's people have been through and the confidence to continue invading countries or result in WWIII.

Neither is a good option, it would be a lot better if his own people could get rid of him.

Re: Russia has invaded Ukraine

NEW: Russia continues to talk about using chemical and biological weapons in Ukraine, but U.S. has no indications of an imminent attack: senior U.S. defense official.

U.S. is monitoring Russian stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons for movements into Ukraine, the official said. - Jack Detsch - Foreign Policy.

Some good Russian jokes making the rounds reported by Garry Kasparov:

Quote:
And many jokes on the effect Putin's banning of the word "war" has on Russian literature. Now we have "The Great Patriotic Special Military Operation of the Soviet Union, 1941-1945" and "Special Military Operation and Peace" by Tolstoy!
and on the success of the war
Quote:
We are now entering day 24 of the special military operation to take Kyiv in two days.

Re: Russia has invaded Ukraine

Reminds me of the old Stalin/Beria joke..

Quote:
Stalin has a visit from a Georgian delegation: They come, they talk to Stalin, and then they go, heading off down the Kremlin's corridors.

Stalin starts looking for his pipe. He can't find it. He calls in Beria, the dreaded head of his secret police. "Go after the delegation, and find out which one took my pipe," he says. Beria scuttles off down the corridor.

Five minutes later Stalin finds his pipe under a pile of papers. He calls Beria--"Look, I've found my pipe." "It's too late," Beria says, "half the delegation admitted they took your pipe, and the other half died during questioning."

Reports are growing that a large concentration of Russian troops are now encircled and cut off near northwest of Kyiv. If confirmed, this could be a major development.

‘existential threat’ to Russia or Putin?
