Authorities confirm information about 400 natives of Southern Russia perished in Ukraine

Since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, the authorities have reported about at least 274 natives of Northern Caucasus and 126 residents of the Southern Federal District (SFD) perished in Ukraine. Most of the dead were natives of Dagestan – at least 145 people.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on March 25, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced the information about 1351 militaries killed and 3825 people wounded in Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, the authorities of the regions and districts of Southern Russia have reported about at least 145 natives of Dagestan, 50 natives of North Ossetia, and 34 Stavropol residents perished in Ukraine. The authorities also reported about the death of 20 residents of Kabardino-Balkaria, ten residents of Ingushetia, ten residents of Chechnya, and five natives of Karachay-Cherkessia.

Since the beginning of the special military operation, the authorities of the regions of the SFD have reported about at least 126 natives of the SFD perished in Ukraine. In the Volgograd Region, the authorities confirmed the information about the death of 43 natives of the region, in the Krasnodar Territory – 28, and in the Rostov Region – 24. The death of 22 natives of the Astrakhan Region, seven natives of Kalmykia, and two Adygea was also officially confirmed.

The death toll among law enforcers from Northern Caucasus in Ukraine is higher than within in the last eight years of the armed conflict in the Caucasus, in which 143 law enforcers died.

Most of the contractors 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), political analyst Akhmet Yarlykapov suggests.
