In the fight with Russia, 3,000 Ukrainian soldiers have died and nearly 10,000 have been injured, according to Zelenskyy.
3,000 soldiers have been killed and at least 10,000 have been injured so far in Ukraine's battle with Russia, according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who added that it's "impossible to say how many will survive."
Meanwhile, following Russia's retreat, the bodies of over 900 civilians have been discovered in the territory surrounding Kiev, the majority of them were fatally shot, authorities stated Friday, indicating that many individuals were "just killed."
The startling figure was revealed shortly after Russia's Defense Ministry pledged to intensify missile attacks on Kyiv in retaliation for claimed Ukrainian incursions into Russian territory. Following the shocking loss of Moscow's flagship in the Black Sea, this frightening warning was sent.
Moscow continued to make preparations for a military invasion in eastern Ukraine despite its threats. Fighting continued in Mariupol, the battered southern port city, where residents reported witnessing Russian troops digging up remains. According to regional governor Oleh Sinehubov, shelling of a residential area in Kharkiv killed seven people, including a seven-month-old child, and injured 34 others.
