Russian casualties in Bakhmut alone is 100,000 alone, said Matthew Miller, US State Department Spokesperson at a briefing held on May 24, APA reports.
"I’m not going to speak for casualties on the Ukrainian side. Prigozhin says a lot of things publicly, some of them true, some of them. But I would say that our assessment is that 20,000 would significantly undercount the number of Russian casualties in Bakhmut. We have said publicly 100,000 casualties in Bakhmut alone. Now, that is not just dead. That’s both dead and wounded, but – around 100,000 casualties in Bakhmut," said State Department Spokesperson.
