Ukrainian President Zelenskyy Reveals Heavy Toll: 31,000 Troops Lost in Russian Invasion

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, since the Russian invasion started two years ago, his nation has lost 31,000 troops.

Although it is less than half of previous US estimates of the nation's losses—which predicted that almost 70,000 Ukrainian troops had died—Zelenksyy has published an official death toll for the first time, according to The New York Times.

Zelenskyy said, "This is a major loss for us," during a news conference in Kyiv, the country's capital, according to the Times. He said earlier this month that there had been one Ukrainian soldier killed for every five Russian troops. The Times said in August that US authorities had conservatively calculated the number of dead on both sides to have totaled around 500,000.

In the meanwhile, both sides are attempting to use drafts to force additional men into the battlefield.

Thousands of Russia's ill-trained troops are dying on the battlefield, and it is possible that they do not even have enough weaponry for them all.

Military recruiters in Ukraine have allegedly attempted to enroll a guy who has a permanent mental handicap and seized passports.

The second anniversary of Russia's invasion occurred on February 24, 2024. At first, Russian officials believed that Moscow would win the war in a matter of days. Rather, the invaders have lost tens of thousands of men in order to win some territory in Bakhmut and Avdiivka. As this is going on, Ukrainians are pleading with the US and other friends to keep helping them, threatening to attack Poland and other European countries if they do not get the money.
