Kyiv: Russia, which has invaded Ukraine, has been on the offensive for the 28th day. The Russian military, which has taken control of many parts of Ukraine, has launched an offensive to seize the capital, Kiev.
The Ukrainian military continues to retaliate against Russian forces. Ukraine is expressing stronger opposition than expected. Thus the damage is high on both sides.
NATO estimates that between 7,000 and 15,000 Russian soldiers have been killed so far in the fighting. A NATO military official said the information was based on information received from Ukrainian officials.
Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has accused China of providing political support to Russia with blatant lies. He said NATO allies would agree to provide additional support to Ukraine against the threat of nuclear weapons and chemical weapons.
