At Least 20 Russian State Agencies have Stopped Publishing Data Showing Russian Losses in Ukraine War, ‘To Be Precise’ Says

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Sept. 26 – A minimum of 20 Russian government ministries and agencies have stopped publishing data of various kinds that could be used to determine the size of Russian losses from combat in Ukraine, despite much-ballyhooed efforts by the Accounting Chamber to show how “open” these agencies are, the To Be Precise portal says.

            The reason is simple: the Accounting Chamber considers all data released and thus does not focus on data that no longer are, the portal says (;

            To Be Precise journalist argue that a much finer grained approach is needed in this case if Russians and others are to understand what is really going on – increasing restrictions on sensitive data that the Kremlin is covering by releasing other data in an effort to obscure what it is doing.
