Arakhamia: Ukraine loses up to 1,000 people killed and wounded in Donbass every day Losses of the Ukrainian army in Donbass have grown in two weeks, they reach up to 1,000 soldiers a day, of which up to 500 people die, David Arakhamia said. However, the country has the strength to continue the fight, he emphasizes
Up to 1,000 Ukrainian soldiers are killed or injured in Donbas every day. According to Axios, David Arakhamia, the head of the Ukrainian delegation at the talks with Russia on the conflict settlement, said this during a visit to Washington.
On average, according to Arakhamia, from 200 to 500 people die a day. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on June 1 that the country was losing “60 to 100 soldiers killed and about 500 wounded in combat” every day. Over the past two weeks, said Arakhamia, this number has increased significantly.
On June 10, Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, estimated the daily loss of Ukrainian forces at 100-200 servicemen killed, linking this to the lack of parity between the military capabilities of Moscow and Kyiv.
According to Arakhamia, despite this, Ukraine has the strength to continue the fight in the Donbass. Now, according to him, 1 million people are involved in the hostilities, and Kyiv has the opportunity to increase this number to 2 million (Zelensky previously said that by the end of May, 700 thousand people took part in the hostilities on the side of Ukraine. Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov later said that the country “is guided by the need to provide 1 million people who will fight the enemy”.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Army, General Mark Milley, said that Washington and Kiev estimate losses approximately the same Ukrainian army.
On June 11, Aleksey Arestovich, an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said that since the beginning of the Russian military operation on February 24, the Armed Forces of Ukraine had lost up to 10,000 servicemen. Earlier, he said that the exact figures would not be disclosed until the end of hostilities, explaining this as a state secret.
