The rate at which Russian troops are being killed in Ukraine has slowed down, according to remarks from Western officials reported by the Reuters news agency.
They observed the decrease after Russia narrowed its operations to concentrate on eastern Ukraine.
But Reuters quotes them saying the numbers are still “quite high”.
A Ukrainian presidential adviser has conceded his country has seen losses in the east – but claimed Russia’s own numbers were “colossal”.
However, the BBC has reported however, that it has not been able to verify the claim.
