Invasion led to deaths of 50,000 Russian soldiers, destruction of 1,700 Russian tanks, says Commander of British army


It’s just a “wishful thinking”, says the commander of the British armed forces after calling the stories that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ill or could be killed.

Admiral Tony Radakin also mentioned that the Russia poses “the biggest threat” to the United Kingdom and that is its struggle would last for years when the Conservative party choose a substitute for Prime Minister Boris Johnson.


After going through setbacks in the conflict in Ukraine, the ground troops in Russia might now be less of a threat, as per the military leader.

According to the sources, the invasion has resulted in the deaths or injuries of 50,000 Russian soldiers and the destruction of approximately 1,700 Russian tanks and 4,000 armoured battles vehicles. He mentioned, “But Russia continues to be a nuclear power. It’s got cyber capabilities, it’s got space capabilities and it’s got particular programmes under water so it can threaten the underwater cables that allow the world’s information to transit around the whole globe.”

When Johnson’s successor assumes office on September 6, briefings on the military will be dominated by Ukraine, Radakin mentioned in the statement, “And then we have to remind the prime minister of the extraordinary responsibility they have with the UK as a nuclear power, and that is part of the initiation for a new British prime minister.”
