Russia finally concedes its forces incurred heavy losses during the invasion of Ukraine, calling it a “huge tragedy.”

The Russian government has finally confessed that it suffered losses in Ukraine during its invasion. The Russian government has brushed off accusations by Ukraine that it has suffered losses on the battlefield during the war, which is now in its 44th day.

Russia’s Ministry of Defense announced on March 25 that 1,351 of its servicemen had been killed in combat. According to Ukraine, about 19,000 Russians have died.

Between 7,000 and 15,000 Russian soldiers are believed to have been killed, according to Western commanders.

Dmitry Peskov, the Russian presidential spokesman, has now stated that Russia has suffered “substantial troop losses” in Ukraine, calling the losses a “great tragedy.”

He told Sky News in the United Kingdom that he thought Moscow will achieve its war objectives “in the next days.”

Since 2000, Peskov has served as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesperson, claiming that Russia is looking for methods to end the conflict.

“Our military is doing everything they can to bring that operation to a close,” he said. “And we sincerely hope that in the next days, in the near future, this operation will achieve its objectives or be completed by negotiations between the Russian and Ukrainian delegations.”

Russia has withdrawn soldiers from Kyiv and redirected the majority of its military efforts to eastern Ukraine, but the violence shows no signs of abating.

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin revealed to Russia’s state Duma that the country is facing its worst economic outlook in decades as a result of the cumulative impact of widespread sanctions.

“Without a doubt, the current position for Russia is the most challenging in three decades,” he stated. “Even during the darkest days of the Cold War, such sanctions were not applied.”
