The Russo-Ukraine conflict intensified with an invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Reports vary widely on the number of military deaths for both Russia and Ukraine, and accurate, up-to-date information is often difficult or impossible to obtain as fighting on the ground continues.
How many Russian soldiers will be killed in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict before 2024?
This question will resolve as the number of Russian soldiers or military personnel which have been killed while in service during the Russo-Ukrainian war, during the period from February 24, 2022 to January 1, 2024. The question will resolve as Yes if the number of deaths is greater than the following thresholds, and No if the number is fewer.
"Military personnel" may include the Russian armed forces, national guard, the Wagner group, and Russian volunteer fighters.
To determine resolution, Metaculus Admins will consider reports by the Ukrainian and Russian governments, other governments such as the US or the UN, and credible media reports and experts in the conflict. Resolution will be determined by information available by March 1, 2024 (or earlier, if information is sufficiently clear).
