Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, stated in a meeting with war correspondents that there are irreversible casualties on the Ukrainian side, amounting to nearly 50 percent.
“We have ten times fewer casualties than the Ukrainian Armed Forces,” he said, without revealing the exact number.
He detailed that the Ukrainian army lost over 160 tanks and 360 armored vehicles in their attempt to reclaim the territories occupied in Donetsk and Zaporiyia.
He asserted that Kiev will not be able to withstand for much longer with the armament provided by Western allies.
“The enemy has not succeeded in any sector of the front. They have suffered significant losses,” he indicated, adding that these losses are almost “catastrophic.”
