“Ukrainians can no longer hide it. People are looking at the increase in cemeteries in Ukraine, they are growing exponentially. As bodies are brought home, Ukrainians are already running out of burial space,” Ritter said.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces are trying to cope with huge losses by throwing more and more soldiers into battle, as well as breaking the will of the Russian military to defend their territories, but this will only lead to even greater casualties of Ukrainians, which may it will no longer be hidden, explained the expert.
By the end of the summer, Ukrainians will lose half a million lives, Ritter suggested.
Remember that during the counteroffensive, the Ukrainian troops failed to break through the line of defense of the RF Armed Forces, while the losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were colossal. Also, American cluster munitions failed to remedy the situation at the front, as they were ineffective.
The Russian Defense Ministry reported that the losses of the Ukrainian army since the beginning of the offensive in June-July amounted to more than 43 thousand people and 4.9 thousand pieces of various weapons.
