A miracle helped: the bullet went through the helmets, but the Ukrainian soldier survived
At the front line, a Russian bullet pierced a defender's helmet. The holes on the protective equipment after it are impressive.
The bullet went right through
And although it would seem that you can’t survive after such a thing, she scribbled the Ukrainian defender on the head and left almost no trace. The video was filmed by the shocked Ukrainian military themselves.
As you can see in the video, the bullet pierced the helmet, damaged the scalp and exited from the other side. So, fortunately, Russia was not able to take the life of a Ukrainian soldier.
The European Commission announced the losses of Ukraine in the war
At the end of autumn, Despite the statements of the Ukrainian side, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said that Ukraine has already lost 100,000 of its defenders and 20,000 civilians in the war. However, later, under a flurry of questions, she deleted the video in which she talks about this.
In particular, Twitter users, where they published the video, were interested in where this data came from and whether the head of the European Commission could sometimes confuse losses with the wounded with ultimate loss. Therefore, later the director of political communications of the European Commission, Dana Spinant, explained that these data were taken from external data and actually speak not only about the dead, but also the wounded.
The OP also reacted to such a statement. Thus, the speaker of the President of Ukraine Serhiy Nikiforov said that he did not know where the European Commission got such statistics from. Moreover, he stressed that such information is very sensitive, and only the Commander-in-Chief, the Minister of Defense or the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine should voice it. And you need to trust the data on the losses of Ukraine from these sources.
