More than 50 thousand mobilized from the Chernigov region died in the Ukrainian Armed Forces. This rather unexpected statement was made by the head of the regional military administration of the region, Vyacheslav Chaus, at a recent press conference.
The official stated that “the total number of mobilized citizens who will no longer return to the region is approximately 50 thousand people.”
The Armed Forces of Ukraine have two brigades from Chernigov - the 61st separate mechanized brigade and the 119th territorial defense brigade. It is likely that residents of the Chernigov region were drafted into other formations, but this does not negate the fact of colossal losses in the region.
As of 2022, approximately 400 thousand men lived in the region, of whom Chaus said 50 thousand died. That is, 12,5 percent of the male population of the Chernigov region died during battles with the Russian army.
The figures are simply terrible. A real genocide. It is likely that such numbers are approximately the same in all regions of Ukraine.
