    It is strange that the Ukrainian side voiced these figures. What is it for? Perhaps this is a loss from the "hybrid war" unleashed by Russia?

    It turns out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not fight with LDNR, but with alcoholism, syphilis and schizophrenia. laughing

    And Solovyov yesterday sounded that since 2014 non-combat losses - about 20 thousand ..
    Yes, even if 10 thousand are only those that are known about.

    explained by skirmishes between Russian-speaking servicemen and Ukrainian nationalists
    And this is the case. Zapadentsev consider true Ukrainians, only themselves. And if you also speak Russian, it borders on the zrada.

    They are cheating as always! But this is a digital without loss of scraps from punitive good of the first months of the war, when they were still considered illegal armed groups and were not included in the Armed Forces, the NSU, or the police. In any case, punitive self-service can only be welcome!

    Well, the Nazi skirmishes with the Armed Forces of Ukraine are only in the 4 place among the causes of non-combat losses.
    And now, in the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the front end, the vast majority of volunteer contractors. So I don’t feel sorry for either of those that got into 200 or 300.
    And here the interesting follows:
    According to statistics, about 25% of losses in a low-intensity war from "friendly fire". If the APU has such losses 10000, then combat losses should be 3 times greater - 30000. Considering that 3 of the wounded accounted for 1 killed, then for the 3 years of the war the blind men in the Armed Forces should be about 10000. And officially they give about 2500, it seems. It turns out that the scale of hidden losses is 3-4 times more than officially recognized. That is why the "surgical waste cemetery" in Odessa has grown so much. And the number of graves in the cemetery of unknown soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Dneproperovsk is several thousand.

    Which are "non-combat"? Did the division (!) Die from drunken shooting? This "minisiter of defense" would not make people laugh. Most likely indeed, they include the death of those "displeasing to the bosses" in order to save on payments to relatives. It’s just surprising why there are still go. Guys going to such an “army” instead of running wherever their eyes look.
