Real losses of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, which were not made public for  6 years, have been disclosed.

The insurance group “Sogaz”, which has recently won a tender of the Ministry of Defense has revealed the documents. Their publication reports figures as follows: in 2012 – 630 military men died, in 2013 – 596, in 2014 – 790, in 2015 – 626.

These statistics include deaths from all causes – diseases, killings, suicides, accidents (including exercises), as well as combat losses. It is also known that these figures take into account all the military without exception, – draftees and contract officers.

The peak of the fighting in the east of the former Ukraine was the summer and autumn of 2014, as well as the winter of 2015.

According to the statements of Ukrainian propaganda, which liberal media broadcast, the losses of Russian troops were estimated in the thousands. But according to this published data it turns out that in the pre-war period of 2012, more military men died (630) than in the period of 2015 (626), when the operation in Syria also began.

A relatively small surge is observed in 2014 – 790 deaths, which is 160 more than in 2012 and 2015.

Let us emphasize that this figure is infinitely far from the “many thousands of losses” of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation as reported by Ukrainian media.
