"Over eight days, the losses of the Russian army exceeded 10,000 in killed and wounded. The elimination of at least one Russian general has been confirmed. Russian society starts to feel and realize these losses," Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksii Reznikov posted on Facebook.
According to him, the destroyed Russian armored vehicles are measured not in units but battalions and brigades. Ukraine’s Armed Forces have gained more tanks and armored vehicles as trophies than the Ukrainian military-industrial complex has received over past eight years.
As noted, Ukrainian defenders seized several vehicles with MLRS shells with which Russian war criminals are shelling our peaceful cities. All these shells will be "returned" to the enemy.
"We are also suffering losses. War is a great grief. Almost every hour there are reports that the Russian occupiers have killed civilians again. Blood boils with rage when our children die… There are casualties among our soldiers. They fight like cyborgs but they have living hearts in their chests. Each of them will be honored as a hero," Reznikov emphasized.
As reported, on February 24, Russian president Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine and launched a large-scale invasion.
Russian troops are killing civilians, shelling and destroying key infrastructure facilities, and missiles hit Ukrainians' homes.
Martial law was imposed in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced. The Armed Forces of Ukraine, with the support of the entire nation, courageously resist Russian aggression.
Ukraine filed a lawsuit against the Russian Federation at the UN International Court of Justice in The Hague. International Criminal Court Prosecutor Karim Khan commenced an investigation into the situation in Ukraine.
