The General Staff of the Armed Forces cannot announce the losses of the Ukrainian army in a full-scale war against Russia. At the same time, he emphasizes the irreversibility of punishment for the aggressor country for the death and injury of Ukrainian citizens.
When asked to comment on the assessment of Ukraine’s losses in the war against the Russian Federation (100,000 soldiers), voiced by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, the General Staff reminded that military losses are classified information.
“We cannot confirm this figure, we emphasize that the losses of the Ukrainian army are official information and are subject to restrictions on publication. At the same time, if what the head of the European Commission announced will allow us to bring the aggressor country to justice, we can only support actions that will contribute legal punishment for those who organized the genocide of the Ukrainian people.
It is necessary to do everything so that all those responsible for the loss of civilian and military citizens of Ukraine end up on the dock,” he said.
We will remind, earlier on November 30, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that more than 100,000 Ukrainian servicemen and 20,000 civilians died in the war with the Russian Federation.
The President’s Office commented that this information is sensitive and official data will be released when the time is right.
After that, the European Commission specified that von der Leyen’s statement referred to both the dead and the wounded defenders of Ukraine and civilians.
