“Komsomolskaya Pravda” published an article with the report on wounded (16,153) and killed (9,861) Russian soldiers in Ukraine, citing the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation.
The article was published on Sunday, but the news spread on social media only on Monday evening. The text was deleted from the webpage immediately after that, and then returned – but without the numbers.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine reported 15,000 casualties on the Russian side as of today.
“Free Idel-Ural” (t/n: a civic movement of Povolzhye people aiming at independence for republics of Mordovia, Chuvashia, Mari El, Tatarstan, Udmurtia and Bashkortostan) appeals to men of military age: the minimum goal right now is not to be called up for military service to the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the ultimate goal is to sabotage and fight using all available means on the territories of their Republics.
