Russia lost more troops last week than at any point of its full-scale invasion, according to Ukrainian military figures.

 A record 6,180 troops were reportedly killed in the week Feb. 5-Feb. 12. The previous highest total was 5,800 recorded back in April last year. Other disastrous weeks for Russia occurred in June (5,050) and July (5,280).

 The huge numbers are a result of an increase in Russia military operations in eastern Ukraine where a renewed Russian offensive is underway.
