Losing? Putin's Army Has Higher Death Toll In Ukraine Than U.S. Across 20 Years In Middle East

Russia has the larger and stronger military in its war with Ukraine, but new intelligence states Russia is already suffering an unusually high death toll of 7,000 soldiers, per The New York Times. MSNBC's Ari Melber reports on the new figures, noting the death toll means more Russian soldiers were killed in three weeks than the U.S.'s total losses across 20 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.
