NATO estimates that as many as 40,000 Russian troops have been killed, injured, captured or gone missing during the first month of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a NATO official told NBC News.

“Of those, between 7,000 and 15,000 Russian troops have died, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to share NATO’s latest intelligence assessment of the ongoing war,” NBC News reported.

Russia has previously refused to publicly disclose how many of their troops have died during its invasion of Ukraine. Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday that disclosing the numbers is the “exclusive prerogative” of Russia’s Ministry of Defense.

“On the numbers, we agreed from the very beginning that we do not have the authority to voice them during the special military operation,” Peskov said.

The news comes shortly after the Pentagon announced that Russia’s combat power has dropped significantly since the beginning of its invasion.

“We’ve assessed, for the first time, that the Russians may be slightly below a 90% level of assessed available combat power,” a senior defense official told reporters on Tuesday, according to Fox News.

However, the official warned that “It is not an assessment of all Russian military power.”

As Russia has failed to make progress in its invasion for weeks, a senior defense official also said that some Russian troops are even “suffering from frostbite.”

    Putin must die. Joe Biden has killed humanity. Democrats brought hell to this earth. Trump acquitted in impeachment trials. Stupid dumb Democrats. Off with Psaki’s lying head.
