Russian losses in Ukraine ‘significant’ – Kremlin
Russia has admitted suffering “significant losses of troops” in Ukraine, as the invasion enters its 44th day.
Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told British channel Sky News the casualties were “a huge tragedy for us”.
He said he hoped Moscow would reach its war goals “in the coming days”.
Russia has pulled troops away from Kyiv and shifted most of the focus of its war to eastern Ukraine – but the fighting shows no signs of ending.
Mr Peskov’s comments followed Russia’s expulsion from the United Nations Human Rights council on Wednesday.
