Nearly 9,000 Ukrainian troops killed so far, says Kyiv

Nearly 9,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed since Russia invaded, the country's top military officer said Monday, as Moscow accused Kyiv over the assassination of the daughter of a leading hardliner.

The European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell meanwhile told reporters in Spain that the bloc was considering military training for Ukraine's forces.

General Valeriy Zaluzhny, Ukraine's commander-in-chief, said Ukraine's children needed particular attention "because their fathers have gone to the front and are maybe among the nearly 9,000 heroes who have been killed".

Zaluzhny's comments on the Ukrainian death toll, reported by Interfax-Ukraine news agency, was the first indication of Kyiv's military losses since April.

On Wednesday, Ukraine will mark its independence day -- and six months since Russian troops invaded

After Ukrainian resistance thwarted an early Russian push on the capital Kyiv, Moscow's forces have focussed on gaining ground in the east of the country.

The shockwaves of the war are being felt around the world with soaring energy prices and food shortages.

Russian soldier: 'our army has been destroyed' by Putin's lies



In a CNN exclusive, aired on Monday, reporter Matthew Chance interviewed Pavel Filatyev, a former Russian soldier in hiding, who attracted international attention last week after risking his life to condemn the war against Ukraine and highlight the crimes being committed by the Russian Army.

Putin has broadly claimed to the Russian people that the invasion of Ukraine is simply a limited, strategic operation to provide security to so-called "independent Republicans" declared by Kremlin-backed separatists in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine. But Filatyev, having seen the war up close, understands better.

"It's awful to realize that Russia is destroying Ukraine and Ukraine hates Russia because of what we are doing," said Filatyev through an interpreter. "And that the whole world thinks Russians are animals and bad people." He went on to add, "We were dragged into this serious conflict where we're just destroying towns and not actually liberating anyone. All of that's a lie. We are simply destroying peaceful lives."

"And we've seen those lives destroyed," noted Chance for viewers. "Russian troops [are] killing thousands of Ukrainian civilians in a bloody rampage across the country. Human rights groups and others documenting alleged war crimes including rapes and killings. But that's something Filatyev denies witnessing at all, although he does describe how grinding battles, poor conditions and a severe lack of basic supplies turned Russian soldiers like him into savages."

"Many of us had no food, no water, nor even sleeping bags," said Filatyev. "Because it was very cold at night and we couldn't sleep, we would find some rubbish, some rags just to wrap ourselves in to keep warm. Some took laptops, computers and other technology. Perhaps because their salary does not provide for them to get those in an honest way. Many robbed abandoned stores with mobile phones and other things. I don't want to justify their actions. You about it is important to understand that their poor level of life pushes them to do such things during war."

Asked about whether Filatyev feels guilty for his own role in the war, he replied, "Look, the majority of Russian servicemen did not break the laws of combat. But morally, I feel guilty. Guilty for being used as an instrument in political games which will not even bring Russia any benefit. Our army has been destroyed. My government has destroyed almost every sphere with corruption, and everyone in Russia knows it."

State Department urges Americans to leave Ukraine; UN says world is at a moment of 'maximum danger'

The U.S. State Department issued a warning over the threat of increased Russian strikes on Ukraine during the week of its independence day on Aug. 24, urging remaining Americans in Ukraine to leave the country. Kyiv is bracing itself for fresh Russian attacks that its President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has warned may be “particularly nasty.”

The U.N. continued to sound the alarm over the situation at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest, demanding a demilitarization of the area and warning that the world is facing a moment of “maximum danger.”

Meanwhile, the volume of grain leaving Ukraine’s ports for export has increased to more than 700,000 metric tons.
