Every day, in the war against Russian aggression, Ukraine loses about 50 soldiers. Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, Ukrainian heroes have died five times less than the occupiers.
“We have estimates of casualties per day, they are not exact. It is about 50 people a day. But these are not exact numbers because we do not know how many soldiers and civilians remain in this area. Five times less have died Ukrainian soldiers than Russian soldiers,” the president said.
As Zelenskyi explains, he receives data on the losses of the Armed Forces, but it is important to be careful with the numbers because it is about human lives.
“The position of our military is not to name the exact number of dead or wounded Ukrainian servicemen. The main issue is accurate data. I have data that I receive and that are provided to me. We have to be very careful with the numbers, because we are talking about human lives “, – adds the President of Ukraine.
We will remind you that RBC-Ukraine wrote that, according to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov, the peak of the losses of the Armed Forces was in May, when Russia had the advantage, especially in the Donbas direction.
Also recently, as Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Malyar explained, the losses of the Armed Forces amount to more than 9,000 people, but the exact figure cannot be given at the moment, due to the impossibility of calculating the losses in Mariupol.
Meanwhile, our heroes, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, as of the morning of September 23, have destroyed about 56 thousand invaders.
