Up To 100 Ukrainian Soldiers Are Dying Every DAY In The Donbas

Ukraine is losing up to
600 troops per day including 100 killed in action, President Zelensky has
admitted as he gave the clearest indication yet of the blood debt his military
is paying to hold back the Russian invasion.

Zelensky said the situation in
Donbas, where the fiercest fighting is taking place, is ‘very difficult’ but
insisted his soldiers are ‘holding our defensive perimeter’ despite advances
by Putin’s men in recent days.

‘We’re losing 60-100 soldiers
per day as killed in action and something around 500 people as wounded in
action,’ he said – lifting the lid on Ukrainian casualties which have been a
closely guarded secret throughout the war.

The battle for Donbas has now
largely descended into brutal trench warfare, with Ukraine digging defenses
that are pounded by Russian artillery before troops try to rush through gaps in
the line – not unlike the battlefields of the First World War.

Out-gunned by the Russian
side, Ukraine has been begging allies for better artillery to strike back at
Putin’s men – with Joe Biden revealing on Tuesday that America will be sending
advanced rocket systems to aid in the fight. 

The heaviest fighting is
currently ongoing in the city of Severodonetsk, which is now largely under
Russian control. Capturing it entirely would put Putin’s forces on the cusp of
taking Luhansk province – one of his key war aims.

Ukrainian forces in the region
are taking heavy losses.  Neil Hauer, a journalist who has spent time
on the frontlines, revealed one soldier he is in contact with saw 56 men in his
60-man squad killed in a recent rotation to the front.
