On January 25th, Turkiye’s Hürseda Haber somehow leaked online, allegedly from Israel’s Mossad, the losses by both Ukraine and Russia, thus far in Ukraine’s war:


157,000 Dead

234,000 injured

17,230 Captives

234 Dead – NATO military trainers (US and UK)

2,458 Dead – NATO soldiers (Germany, Poland, Lithuania, …)

5,360 Dead – Mercenaries

302 Planes

212 Helicopters

497 Air defense systems

2,750 (S)UAV

6,320 Tanks and armored vehicles

7,360 Howitzer (Artillery systems)


18,480 dead

44,500 Injured

323 Captives

23 Planes

56 helicopters

12 Air defense systems

200 (S)UAV

889 Tanks and armored vehicles

427 Howitzer (Artillery systems)

These figures were reported also in a confusing February 7th youtube from Kim Iversen, mixing it in with lots of irrevevant information, and racing it by, far too fast for hearers to assimilate or intelligently evaluate. Thus far, almost 3,000 reader-comments have been posted to it.

As regards the reliability of the Hürseda Haber report, each reader will have to evaluate that oneself. However, if the report is anywhere near accurate, then Ukraine has lost around 8.5 soldiers dead for every one Russian soldier dead, and the other multiples are: 5.25 Injured, 15 Planes, 4 Helicopters, 41 Air Defense Systems, 14 UAV’s, 7 Tanks, and 17 Howitzers.


Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s new book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.

I do not believe the figure for the Russians.

In late November 2022, Ursula von der Leyen (President of the European Commission) said “…more than 100,000 Ukrainian military officers have been killed so far.” 

Anyway, Russia is a military superpower, so a 10-1 hammering in Russia’s favour, is about what one would expect, when you go toe to toe with a military superpower.

And yet if the criminals in the West had simply done the right thing the number would be ZERO.

With all the “game changers” the collective west has been delivering over the last year. Looks like the collective west doesn’t know what “game” they are playing.

This was the headline of an article was published on RTE (aka Soviet Pravda RTE) , here in Ireland on 3 Feb 2023.

How thousands of women are serving on the front lines in Ukraine

When I read the headline, I instantly understood that the Ukrainian armed forces were been decimated by the Russian armed forces.

And I wonder, at the end of the day, how many of the Ukrainian dead will be under the age of 19 (the legal age in most countries when you are allowed to fight in a fully-blown warzone) as opposed to none in the Russian Army (because they are not press-ganging 16 and 17 year olds)?

That’s about the ratio, 80%, of Russian (USSR) attrition of the Nazi forces on the eastern front in WWII, statistically including all Nazi personnel losses on all WWII fronts, although to be fair & inclusive, the Soviets, then our allies, took much higher military & civilian losses on their eastern front (20+Million?).
