MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. The Soviet Union’s Armed Forces lost nine million servicemen in the Second World War, an aide to the Russian deputy defense minister has said.

"During many-year work, our researchers have come to a conclusion. They have drawn it after calculating with a pencil in hand all the data available by the Armed Forces, at the Defense Ministry’s central archive. They got the number of 8,866,400 people. It is the figure received after a many-year-long research at archives," Major General Aleksandr Kirilin told the RSN radio station on Saturday.

The human losses account for servicemen who were killed on battlefields, died in hospitals, went missing or never returned after taken prisoner.
