Russian Combat Losses- 07 April, 2022 and Casualties During Soviet-Afghan War in 1980’s

7 April 2022

The Soviet-Afghan war of the 1980’s is cited as one of the factors leading to the collapse of the Soviet Union. In that war of 10 years duration, an estimated 15,000 Soviet soldiers died. As of today, day 43 of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russia has lost close to an estimated 19,000 soldiers. That is in one and a half months!

While the Russian invasion of Afghanistan and their invasion of Ukraine are two very different types of warfare many decades apart, the outcome will be the same. Russia will ultimately lose. And we can only hope that their loss in Ukraine will bring about the collapse of the current regime in Moscow, giving the Russian people another chance at freedom.
