    Once around 80% of the Russian population is dead they'll probably stop the war. Russia is prepared to throw children armed with nothing but their bare hands across miles of no man's land rather than accept a loss.

    Do they actually have that many deaths or is that pure casualties? I thought it was still under 200k deaths for both sides combined. As fricked as this war is I don't believe it's been THAT bloody.

      dead and wounded, the last ratio of K:W for russia was 1:1.2, when it was 180,000 dead for 400,000 total casualties. If we assume a similar ratio we can estimate current russian dead are around 225,000

        Even at that number, that's roughly 1 in 1000 of the Russian population dead from this war. It sounds like a drop in the bucket, but it's getting to the point where nearly everyone will at least know somebody who lost a loved one.

            >15k and 35k
            Yeah right, according to KGB red-hot glowing irradiated spooks in kremlin. Just like war in ukraine costed them 16k dead russian soldiers up to date according to those same spooks

            Russian population had different idea of the losses experienced back then in afghan - if it would be 15k KIA 35k WIA then most of the civilian population in most cases wouldn't even hear of a single person in their circles getting killed or maimed
            But instead what happened is that overwhelming amount of people both in cities and rural villages had lost multiple family members, relatives, multiple close friends
            It was so severe that it caused a big long lasting civil discontent, and gorbachevs back-then recent policies to lessen censorship & allow for a resemblance of a free speech in press backfired amplifying it

    Well if they lost 1% in 2 years they could probably hold out another 30 years or so. Normally what stops a war is a lack of political will for it. Eventually the people want to stop fighting. This will never happen in Russia because they are brainwashed slaves.

      They seem to come in two types. There's the brainwashed slaves and the most venal and corrupt scum in the world that you start to understand why the Bolsheviks killed all of those priests (they're a bunch of pedos and literal criminals). Then there are these other Russians who are total anarchists who actually do want to ride around Mad Max cars which is where actual original Russian art, music and literature comes from, as opposed to the rulers, who slavishly copy a facsimile of the worst parts of Western culture (like trashy infotainment news) while glorying in their own greatness, like maggots belching in a field of corpses.

    Russia is basically the modern country equivalent of a liquor-store robbery suspect who gets an entire mag of 9mm unloaded into him but keeps on running for a while on adrenaline alone. They're already done for, but they get to live for a little while longer on borrowed time.

    It's been discussed here, not all russian losses are equal. They can clear out all the prisons and villages plus small towns of men without much resistance, but once they start grabbing people from large cities (million+ people), and especially Moscow - then they're fricked.
    The problem is - rural population isn't breeding, they are mostly old people, and it's pretty hard to grab them, they can easily hide, and going from village to village spaced 100km from each other just to get 1 or 2 people is not productive.
    For now, their strategy was to offer 2000$ to sign up for the military - that's easily more money than anyone in a remote village saw in their lifetime - for them to enlist, and it's been working. In an emergency they grab a few people from the city by forging the documents and sending them off immediately, and then pretending it's just 1 accident, so other people in the city don't think there's a new mobilization wave.
    That's why they'll probably keep finding enough people at this rate if nothing changes and they aren't forced to do an actual mobilization

      It's a (bad) map of maximum extent of russian diaspora settlements, plus everywhere the USSR claimed to control. Not even at the same point in time, just anywhere on the map. Look at the east coast of the US too.

    You have to understand the difference between casualty and "not fit for combat anymore". A person that falls off a truck and bumps his head is counted as a casualty. After two days he's cleared to go back to the front. Then he gets hit in the toe with a splinter. Another casualty, and still back to the front after a week. And so on.
    I'd be willing to bet, besides the obvious lies that any party of any conflict spreads, the average soldier is counted as a casualty three times before not returning to the war any more for one reason or another.

      There's lots of footage of Russian wounded killing themselves, being left abandoned or having poor quality care. There's also reports that assault units are told to ignore the wounded, casevac and medical equipment is non-existant in some places, and wounded are sent back to the front before they've even recovered. I've no doubt the killed/wounded ratio is far different to the usual 1:3 ratio

    The losses Russia are suffering as reported by Ukranian sources are disastrous and not sustainable now let alone in the future. Several mitigating factors:
    1. Ukrainian reports are WILDLY inflated
    2. Russia has avoided doing a general draft by enticing minorities to join in combination with only mild increases in the annual draft
    3. Citizenship-for-service deals offered to 3rd worlders.
