Kremlin official admits Russia suffered ‘significant losses’ in Ukraine

A Kremlin official acknowledged that Russia suffered “significant losses” of Russian troops during its military invasion of Ukraine, but did not specify the exact number of casualties.

Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with Britain’s Sky News on Thursday that Russian military losses were “a huge tragedy for us” and hinted the invasion could end.

“And we hope that in the next few days, in the foreseeable future, this operation will achieve its goals or end it with the negotiations between the Russian and Ukrainian delegations,” Peskov said in the interview.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
