Arestovich revealed the losses of the parties/General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
In fact, every seventh Russian who was sent to fight in Ukraine died. The losses of the enemy over more than 110 days of the war are colossal.
Aleksei Arestovich, adviser to the head of the President's Office, spoke about this on the air of the Feigin Live YouTube channel, Channel 24 reports.
< p> Arestovich said that there are losses from the Ukrainian side. However, they are several times smaller.
In the Russian group that came to Ukraine as a war, every seventh soldier died. We killed every 70 among those who stood up for Ukraine. Feel the difference? Therefore, the ratio and dynamics are completely on our side. But it all takes time,” Arestovich said.
He added that in this context it is important to be aware of how many people took up arms and died.
“Let's say you are in a Russian company. 100 people. Your comrades, of whom one in seven died. Or you are in a Ukrainian unit … These are completely different prospects,” the adviser to the head of the OP gave an example.
According to him, it is important to fight, at least until the moral break of the Russians. This may happen when the Armed Forces of Ukraine take Kherson.
Why Ukraine does not disclose the number of its losses
Aleksey Arestovich said that Ukraine knows the number of dead Ukrainian soldiers with an accuracy of almost a person. At the same time, the data will not be disclosed until the end of the war. Adviser to the head of the Office of the President Arestovich explained that the number of dead Ukrainian soldiers is a state secret. If the data is declassified, it can help the enemy evaluate the effectiveness of his actions.
Arestovich stressed that not a single army in the world names its losses during the war. Russia lies and underestimates its losses by 10 times. Ukraine for the first time published the number of deaths after air raids. This was done to inform the Ukrainians that, unfortunately, there are already the first dead.
