For his part, Oleksiy Arestovich – an adviser to President Zelensky – claimed in an interview on Wednesday that Russian losses in the war are seven times greater than those of the Ukrainians.

Last month, the head of the US Armed Forces General Staff, General Mark Milley, estimated that more than 100,000 Russian soldiers have been killed or wounded in Ukraine, adding that the losses on the Ukrainian side are similar.
