Ukraine claims Russia lost 13,800 servicemen, 430 tanks

Ukraine’s Defence Ministry has said that Russia lost “approximately 13,800 servicemen since the invasion began on February 24.”

In a Facebook post, it also said that Ukrainian forces destroyed 430 Russian tanks, 1375 armored vehicles, 84 planes, 108 helicopters and 11 drones.

It said the figures were approximate and their verification was “complicated” by the high intensity of the fighting.

Russia’s Defence Ministry has reported the country’s death toll only on March 2, saying that 498 servicemen had been killed in Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy appeals to the United States Congress for more help in fending off the Russian invasion.

Zelenskyy has told US lawmakers the tools to protect from wars or to punish the ‘evil’ done during them “don’t work. We see it you see it.”

He offered a new solution: “a union of responsible countries that have the strength and consciousness to stop conflicts immediately.”
