About 100-200 Ukrainian soldiers are killed in action every day, according to Mykhailo Podoliak, assistant to the chief of staff of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. This is the highest figure announced by Ukrainian officials since the start of the invasion.

According to Podoliak, Ukraine’s military capabilities today cannot compete with those of Russia. Ukraine needs up to 300 rocket systems and powerful artillery to repel Russian attacks.

Ukrainian military intelligence estimates that Russia can continue the war “at its current pace” for another year. Ukraine is largely outgunned on the front lines – “it has one artillery piece against 10-15 Russian artillery pieces”.

However, the Ukrainian military noticed that Russia lacked modern weapons and carried out far fewer missile attacks.

Russia’s war killed 263 children and injured 491 in Ukraine. This number does not include data from regions with active hostilities and cities temporarily occupied by Russia.

Nearly 31,900 Russian soldiers have been killed in Ukraine since February 24. At least 200 of them have died in the past 24 hours, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Russian troops are stationed in 10 colonies in Belarus, according to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. He did not reveal the exact number of soldiers. Earlier, Belarus announced that it planned to increase the number of its military to 80,000 troops.
