Another Week Another 78 Donetsk Soldiers Killed
Implies about 50 killed for the entire Russia-led coalition daily in a "quiet" week
Donetsk continues to diligently update its war loss every week. (Lugansk, Russia and Ukraine continue to be mum.) In the seven days through May 12 another 78 Donetsk soldiers have perished. 495 were wounded.
This is a relatively low number compared to other weeks. At times Donetsk has lost over 200 soldiers killed in a week.
78 Donetsk deaths could mean around 50 military Lugansk deaths.
128 combined Donetsk and Lugansk deaths could mean 250 Russian deaths. (Russians have at least twice as many maneuver units involved, probably more.)
The total weekly death count for the entire coalition could be up to 400 (three times 128), but at least 250 (two times 128).
I’d probably put my point estimate at 350 for the entire coalition for the week, or about 50 killed every day. (11 Donetsk, 7 Lugansk, 30 Russian.)
That would also imply at least another 150 wounded each day.
Ukrainian losses are likely somewhat higher but even more uncertain.
