Russia has lost about 142,270 of its soldiers since starting its full-scale war in Ukraine, with 1,010 of them being killed by Ukrainian forces in the last day, the Ukrainian military’s General Staff said in its morning report on Facebook on Feb. 18

Ukraine’s General Staff has regularly reported daily Russian losses of soldiers of over 1,000 in a day in the past couple of weeks. The rise in losses has coincided with reports of a surge in fighting along the front, especially in Bakhmut and near Vuhledar, in Donetsk Oblast.

There has also been fierce fighting in Luhansk Oblast. However, there have not been any reports of major advances or breakthroughs by Russian forces anywhere along the front line in Ukraine, which runs from the northeast of the country in Luhansk Oblast in a sweeping arc down to the south, in Kherson Oblast.
