Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, about 9 thousand Ukrainian soldiers have been killed. The figure was announced today by Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar, interviewed by Ilsnd TV and relaunched by Ukrinform. Maliar stressed that casualty data is being kept confidential to prevent the Russians from using it to update their tactics on the battlefield. According to the latest Ukrainian defense bulletin, the Russian dead are 56,060, of which 550 were killed. On Wednesday, when the mobilization of reservists was announced, the Russian Defense Ministry released the figure of 5,937 of its own soldiers killed, a number far below Western estimates.
