Russia has admitted: Our losses in Ukraine are significant, it is a tragedy

For the first time since the start of its military aggression against Ukraine on February 24, Russia acknowledged that it had suffered “significant” losses in the war. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov revealed this in an interview with Sky News.

“We have significant losses (in human strength). This is a huge tragedy for us, “Peskov said, without naming the exact number of Russian soldiers killed on Ukrainian soil. Since the beginning of the war, the Kremlin has imposed an information blackout in Russia and even banned the use of the word “war”. Anyone who talks about Russia’s losses in the war can be sent to prison.

Ukrainian forces say they have killed nearly 19,000 Russian soldiers so far. The Kremlin did not confirm this information. Dmitry Peskov reiterated Moscow’s thesis that in Bucha and other cities around Kyiv, the Russian army did not kill civilians, but “lies.” “We deny that the Russian military can have anything to do with these atrocities and the dead bodies shown on the streets of Bucha,” Peskov said.

Russia continues to claim that it is not a war in Ukraine, but a “special military operation”. Dmitry Peskov said that “Ukraine is an anti-Russian center” since 2014 when Russia illegally annexed the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea. Peskov also hinted that the Kremlin already wants to see an end to the war in Ukraine, but did not name in what form. “Our military is doing everything possible to end this operation,” Peskov said. In the war against Ukraine, the Russian army committed war crimes and attacked civilian buildings and civilians – although at the beginning of the invasion it claimed that it would attack only military targets.

Russian troops have sided with Ukraine

Russian troops have sided with Ukraine to fight the regime of war criminal Vladimir Putin. More and more people want to join the Freedom of Russia Legion, but for security reasons, their exact number has not been revealed.

In a single day, the legion receives more than 300 applications to join, both from Russian troops and from foreigners seeking to overthrow Putin. This was revealed by the leader of the legion to “Interfax-Ukraine”. “Our legion includes our brothers from Belarus,” he said.

Both active and retired Russian servicemen have joined the legion. They are already fighting on the side of Ukraine, which was attacked by Russia on February 24. The legionnaires know how the battalion-tactical groups of the Russian Federation work because they have repeatedly participated in various military exercises on the territory of the federation. The legion’s fighters stressed that there is no special operation on the territory of Ukraine. “There is a real war going on here against the civilian population,” said one of the legionnaires.

The participants in the press conference called on the Russian military to surrender, join the legion and fight together against the Putin regime, “so that one day Russia will become a free country.” Since the beginning of its military aggression against Ukraine, the Russian military has committed daily war crimes, killing unarmed women and children. A media blackout has been imposed in the Russian Federation and there is no talk of civilian casualties. Moscow continues to claim that there is no war in Ukraine. Russian troops who have sided with Ukraine have acknowledged that the Kremlin’s goal is to assassinate Volodymyr Zelensky and change power in Kyiv. They pointed out that Russia was spreading its propaganda about Nazis and murderers in Ukraine, but the real murderers and fascists were in Russia.
