“Although Russia has suffered 200,000 casualties (dead or wounded – ed.) since its full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a significant minority of them were for non-combat reasons,” the department said.
The Ministry of Defense noted that on March 27, information appeared on Russian social networks about a “very high” number of incidents, crimes and deaths related to alcohol consumption among deployed troops Russian.
“Other leading causes of non-combat losses are likely to include mishandling of weapons, traffic accidents and hypothermia. Russian commanders are likely to consider widespread alcohol abuse particularly which is detrimental to combat effectiveness,” the ministry said.
