Over 200,000 Russian soldiers and more than 1,800 officers have been killed or wounded since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, NATO's Supreme Allied Commander Europe, Christopher Cavoli, told Der Spiegel on March 3.
The general spoke at a traditional dinner at Hamburg City Hall and noted that "the scale of this war is incredible”.
According to him, the aggressor state has lost more than 2,000 tanks and on average its military fires more than 23,000 artillery rounds a day.
Cavoli believes that after Russia's attack on Ukraine, NATO must adapt to the new reality.
"If someone comes with a tank, you have to have a tank too," the general stressed. "However, one of the lessons of the Cold War is that the precision of weapons is what matters. In addition, the defense industry's production capacity is important. The war is won by the one who can produce the fastest."
The General Staff of Ukraine's Armed Forces estimates Russian losses since the beginning of the full-scale war at 152,190 troops in February 2022, including 820 on March 3, 2023, alone.
