As many as 13,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in battle since Russia invaded the country nine months ago.
Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, said this to a television channel on Thursday.
.He said between 10,000 and 13,000 troops had died.
“We have official figures from the general staff, we have official figures from the top command, and they amount to (between) 10,000 and 12,500 to 13,000 killed,” Podolyak said.
“We are open in talking about the number of dead,” he added, saying more soldiers had been wounded than had died.
The number of military casualties has not been confirmed by Ukraine’s armed forces. Podolyak added.
In June he said between 100 and 200 Ukrainian soldiers were dying daily.
