 Russian media outlet admits 2,000 Russian military killed and 3,200 seriously injured in war in Donbas. PHOTOS

Popular Russian media outlet "Business Life" reported in one of its publications that Russia's losses in Ukraine counted for 2,000 military killed and 3,200 seriously injured.

This information was published in an article on military salary increase in 2015, though it remained on the website for quite a short time, Censor.NET reports citing Chetverta Vlada. Shortly after, the article was updated, with the inconvenient information having been deleted. Apparently, it appeared in the publication by accident, through editor's oversight.

At the moment, there is only a link to a shortened, corrected version of the article. Google's cache offers the article in its new view now and no longer contains a piece of text incidentally dwelling on compensations to the military who had participated in the war in Ukraine during 2014-2015, on the size of combat pays to contract soldiers, as well as on compensations to families of the deceased. However, this text is still available as a print screen (below, in Russian).

"Russia's government has also taken an important decision on reimbursement to servicemen who participated in the hostilities in the east of Ukraine.

"Families of the deceased servicemen who took part in military operations in Ukraine will receive a compensation of 3 million rubles; the families of those disabled during combat - 1.5 million rubles. Moreover, combat pays for contract soldiers will make 1,800 rubles per each day of stay in the conflict area.

"In total, as of Feb. 1, 2015, the above compensations have been paid to more than 2,000 families of deceased servicemen and 3,200 soldiers seriously injured and disabled," the initial article read.
