Zelenskyy: About 3,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in the war"Volodymyr Zelenskyy, President of Ukraine, said:
During the seven weeks of war with Russia, about 2,500 to 3,000 Ukrainian soldiers were killed and about 10,000 wounded. He did not count the civilian casualties in an interview with Siwan on Friday.

According to Reuters, he also claimed that 19,000 to 20,000 Russian soldiers had been killed in the war, which is now in its eighth week. But Moscow announced last month that 1,351 Russian soldiers had been killed and 3,825 wounded. The news agency stressed that it could not independently confirm the numbers of the parties.

The war in Ukraine continues, and according to the report, the conflict in Mariupol, which Ukraine has announced is trying to break the siege of the southeastern port city, has intensified. "The Russians have not taken full control of Mariupol," said Alexander Motozyanik, a spokesman for the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.
The situation in Mariupol is difficult. There is a war going on right now. The Russian army is constantly calling for additional units to attack the city.

According to Reuters, if Moscow captures Mariupol, it will be the first major city to fall.

According to Zelenskyy, the military situation in the south and east of the country is still very difficult. In a video speech late last night (Friday), he called for the delivery of heavier weapons and an international oil embargo against Russia by its allies.

The Washington Post also quoted informed sources as saying that Zelenskyy had asked US President Joe Biden to declare Russia a "state sponsor of terrorism." A White House spokesman responded:
We will continue to explore all options to increase pressure on Putin.

The Ukrainian prime minister and senior financial officials will attend this week's meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank in Washington, Reuters reported, citing sources. This is the first opportunity for Ukrainian officials to meet in person with finance officials of advanced economies since the start of the conflict in Ukraine on February 24.
