Virtually since the start of the Ukraine-Russian war, this has been all about Ukraine.
On Monday, President Zelensky revealed that the Russians recently had a major victory, however.
Zelensky confirmed that on May 17, 87 soldiers were killed during a Russian attack.
The attack took place last Tuesday in the town of Desna.
This is a small city just north of Kyiv, which is the ultimate goal of Russians.
Zelensky stated, “Today we completed work at Desna.
“In Desna, under the rubble, there were 87 casualties.
The site was a location for a Ukrainian training base.
According to reports, Russia hit the base with long-range missiles.
Even with this loss for Ukraine, Russia is still taking the majority of the losses during this conflict.
Reports are circulating that Russia’s military has been devastated by this conflict, leaving Russia more vulnerable than ever.
The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense stated, “In the first three months of its ‘special military operation,’ Russia has likely suffered a similar death toll to that experienced by the Soviet Union during its nine-year war in Afghanistan.
“A combination of poor low-level tactics, limited air cover, a lack of flexibility, and a command approach which is prepared to reinforce failure and repeat mistakes has led to this high casualty rate, which continues to rise in the Donbas offensive.”
It is unclear how much longer Russia can afford to continue this conflict.
Putin, however, has remained firm that he will not stop until Kyiv is his.
Having said that, rumors of Putin’s well-being are also circulating, so Putin may not be the one calling the shots for much longer.
