Authorities confirm information about 350 natives of Southern Russia perished in Ukraine

Since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, spokespersons of regional authorities have reported the information about at least 250 natives of Northern Caucasus and 100 residents of the Southern Federal District in Ukraine. Most of the dead were natives of Dagestan, the authorities confirmed the information about at least 129 perished natives of the republic.

Since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, the authorities of the regions and districts have reported the information about at least 129 natives of Dagestan, 49 natives of North Ossetia, and 29 residents of the Stavropol Territory perished in Ukraine. The authorities also reported the deaths of 20 residents of Kabardino-Balkaria, ten residents of Ingushetia, nine residents of Chechnya, and four natives of Karachay-Cherkessia.

Since the beginning of the special military operation, the authorities of the regions of the Southern Federal District (SFD) have reported about at least 100 perished compatriots.

The number of law enforcers from Northern Caucasus who perished in Ukraine is higher than over the last eight years of the armed conflict, in which 143 law enforcers perished.

Earlier, analysts pointed to the lack of information about the number of those who perished in Ukraine. As a rule, most of the contract soldiers are natives of poor regions, which explains the frequent reports of casualties among natives of Dagestan and other republics of the North-Caucasian Federal District (NCFD), Caucasian expert Akhmet Yarlykapov suggests.
