Between 2,500 to 3,000 Ukrainian troops have died in the war — Zelenskyy

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy told CNN that between 2,500 to 3,000 Ukrainian troops died so far in the war with Russia, and another 10,000 were injured. Russia’s casualty numbers of 19,000 to 20,000.

Civilian casualties are more difficult to quantify, Zelenskyy said.

“It is very difficult to talk about civilians, since south of our country, where the towns and cities are blocked — Kherson, Berdiansk, Mariupol further east, and the area to the east where Volnovakha is — we just don’t know how many people have died in that area that is blocked,” Zelenskyy said.

“All of us want to fight,” he continued. “But we all have to do our best for this war not to be endless. The longer it is, the more we would lose. All these losses will be just like that one.”
