Russia admits 'tragic losses' in attack on Ukraine


Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, the war has dragged on for more than a month. The Russian army failed to capture Ukraine in a blitzkrieg as expected. In response, Russia's Kremlin said frankly that Russian troops had suffered "tragic losses" in Ukraine and said Russia was trying to end the war as soon as possible. British Sky News reported that Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov admitted in an interview with the station on the 7th that Russia's "special military operation" against Ukraine was not as smooth as expected, and Russian casualties were lost. heavy. In addition, Peskov mentioned that "the Russian army is doing its best to end this operation", but only if the "special military operation" achieves its goals or if the Russian-Ukrainian peace talks reach a consensus. Although the Ukrainian armed forces are far behind Russia, under the fierce resistance of the Ukrainians, the Russian army's invasion of Ukraine was frustrated, resulting in a stalemate in the war. According to media reports such as Russian state-run TV, The New York Times and the Daily Mail, six major generals and several high-ranking officers in Russia have been killed in the war. NATO estimates that as many as 40,000 Russian soldiers have been killed, wounded or captured since the war began. The Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington-based think tank, deduces that this represents about 25 percent of Russia's initial strength. According to official data released by the Russian Ministry of Defense on March 25, a total of 1,351 Russian soldiers have been killed and 3,825 wounded since the Russian-Ukrainian battle.
