Nearly 6000 Russian soldiers have lost their lives in the first six days of war in Ukraine. This was informed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. 

“Think of this number. Almost 6000 Russians died. To get what? Get Ukraine? It is impossible,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said. 

He added: “This will not be changed by missiles, bombs, tanks, any strikes. We are in our native land. And for the war against us there will be an International Tribunal for them (Russia).”
