Russia itself has so far confessed to the deaths of 1,351 soldiers in the war in Ukraine.

Wallace said Russia “has failed in almost all of its goals.” At the beginning of the war, Russia deployed more than 120 tactical battalion groups, representing about 65 percent of all ground troops. “We are now assuming that a good 25 percent of them are not ready to fight anymore,” Wallace said.

He stressed that Ukraine has been using British Starstreak anti-aircraft missiles for the past three weeks. Wallace announced that the UK would also hand over to Ukraine a “small number” of Stormer armored vehicles equipped with these anti-aircraft missile launchers. This will strengthen Ukraine’s air defense, Wallace said.
