The cost of Putin's war

We rightly pay attention to the dire cost of Putin's unprovoked aggression on the population of Ukraine, but his decision to start the war in Ukraine by ripping up his previous promises to guarantee the borders of Ukraine and invade that country has also had dire consequences for Russia.

The average daily number of Russian casualties in Ukraine has risen by almost 300 during the course of 2023.

If the numbers continue at the current rate over the next year, Russia will have lost over half a million people in Ukraine.

Putin and the gang of sycophants around him are as much the enemy of the people of Russia as they are of the people of Ukraine and their other neighbours.
