A pro-Kremlin tabloid briefly publishes the apparent Russian war toll, reporting that 9,861 Russian soldiers have been killed since Moscow launched the invasion of Ukraine and 16,153 injured.

 

The report in the Komsomolskaya Pravda, which cites Russian Defense Ministry figures, is taken down after several hours.

The figure is similar to that claimed by Ukraine.

Russia has not released an official toll since March 2, when the Kremlin reported 498 casualties.
