Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Saturday that 1,300 members of the Ukrainian armed forces had died since the start of the Russian military offensive on February 24, and said that on the Russian side there were 12,000 casualties.

In a press conference with international journalists, in which he presented for the first time a number of military casualties, Zelensky explained that he is not happy with the deaths of the adversary, “because Russians also have fathers”. According to Ukrainian news agency Unian, Zelensky said that most Russian soldiers know nothing in general, and that they “went to Ukraine because they were told something about fighting fascism”.

Since the start of the offensive, the Russian Defense Ministry has only once released the number of Russian military casualties, at just under 500 soldiers.
