Confused about bonus miles numbers

So my Aeroflot app has shown me 2 figures for miles:





So 27141 vs 25067...how many do I actually have then? what's the difference?!

Now with a pending reservation in 3 weeks, it shows what I'm expecting to get next:



To which figure is this reservation going to end up being added to?

Thanks in advance for any pearls of wisdom about this confusing matter!

You've got 25K qualification miles (QM, those expire on 1/1 each year and are used to define your status in the programme) and 27k of ordinary miles (these can be used towards free flights, expire after 2 years of inactivity).
By the looks of it you have retained your silver for 2019 and had some of the flights in higher fare buckets this year or circa 3k miles from 2018.

So...come Jan 1st I'll have to gain another 50,000 miles to get gold? :/

You need 50000 within a calendar year to get gold, including what you have done for silver.

Yep, sorry but the first New Year with Aeroflot Bonus can be quite frustrating.
