Putin humiliated at loss of 50,000 troops leaves him relying on 'Army of grandads'

The new troops receive just 12 weeks of training before they are thrown into battle in Ukraine but astonishingly, potential recruits are reportedly not told about Russia’s eye-watering losses.

Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, who is the head of the UK’s Armed Forces, claimed Putin has lost 50,000 soldiers since the invasion of Ukraine began, while more than 1,700 tanks have been destroyed.

The Chief of Defence Staff said Ukraine’s army “absolutely” believes it will win the war and that Russia has “lost more than 30 percent of its land combat effectiveness”.

He told BBC One’s Sunday Morning show last weekend: “They are absolutely clear that they plan to restore the whole of their territory in terms of Ukraine, and they see a Russia that is struggling, a Russia that we assess has lost more than 30 percent of its land combat effectiveness.
