Zelenskiy diz que morreram 31.000 soldados ucranianos na invasão russa

February 26, 2024 - O Presidente Volodymyr Zelenski disse que morreram 31.000 soldados ucranianos desde a invasão da Rússia há dois anos, indicando o primeiro número oficial em mais de um ano.

Speaking about the wider losses in the war, Mr Zelensky said tens of thousands of civilians had died in the areas of Ukraine occupied by Russia but the true number was unknown.

It is rare for Ukraine to provide a military death toll, and other estimates suggest a much higher number.

U.S. officials in August put the number of Ukrainian soldiers killed at 70,000 and as many as 120,000 injured.

In terms of Russian losses, Mr Zelensky said 180,000 Russian soldiers have been killed and tens of thousands more injured.

BBC Russian, in a joint project with the Mediazona website, has established the names of more than 45,000 Russian servicepeople who had died. But it estimates the total number to be greater than that.

In February, the UK's defence ministry estimated that 350,000 Russian troops had been killed or injured, according to the BBC.
