More Russian soldiers likely died to seize Avdiivka than in entire Soviet-Afghan war

Russian soldiers have reportedly died during the seizure of Donetsk town of Avdiivka, in eastern Ukraine, surpassing the casualties seen in the entire Soviet-Afghan war. The Institute for the Study of War highlighted this in its recent report amidst the second anniversary of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

The assessment pointed out that Ukrainian forces, despite concerns over potential cessation of US military aid, continue to demonstrate determination and skill in their fight against Russian aggression. Ukrainian air defense forces are successfully targeting Russian aircrafts and ships using innovative tactics.

Ukrainian soldiers are actively defending their positions against Russian attacks, utilizing drones along with traditional weapons of war. Additionally, the Ukrainian Air Force is set to receive F-16s in the near future, while European allies are working to address deficiencies in other war materials.

The report emphasized the crucial role of US military assistance in providing Ukraine with the necessary resources to combat Russian forces effectively. Withholding this aid could potentially worsen the situation, according to the assessment.
