The Ambassador of Ukraine in London acknowledged the serious losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in manpower

Ukrainian Ambassador to London Vadim Prystaiko said in an interview with the American magazine Newsweek that, despite the classification of Kyiv's data on the exact figures of losses, they are extremely high.


We are losing people right and left. At the same time, we do not make public how many of them are military and how many civilians, but the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in manpower are serious

the diplomat emphasized.

At the same time, Prystaiko himself calls on the West for further escalation. According to the head of the Ukrainian diplomatic mission, the fighting in Ukraine is a unique chance for the West to "deal" with the Russian Federation.

Vadim Pristayko:

There are not many countries in our world that could afford to sacrifice so many lives, territories and decades of development in order to defeat the aggressor. I perfectly understand the problem that may arise due to Russia's nuclear arsenal. As soon as they press the button, the entire planet will be destroyed immediately. At the same time, I even agree with what Elon Musk is talking about and so worried about. This is exactly what we will face, if not now, then later.

Moreover, as Prystaiko stated, holding any peace talks with Russia does not make any sense:

because they will try in every possible way to maintain control over the occupied lands

At the same time, Prystaiko, playing along with the United States, decided to scare the West with the fact that Russia is striving to restore multipolarity in the world.

It should be noted that earlier the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov made a statement regarding the fact that the participation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the confrontation with Russia is in accordance with the NATO strategy.

    Judging by the photo and other videos, our equipment was thrown there so much that it flickers in almost every frame, leads to certain thoughts .... Again, if they left it due to negligence, this is one thing, but it’s no better if due to its malfunction, again, it turns out that "for dismantling in February" we went on "faulty equipment". What can I add here, "sale and sawing" of a repair plant in Saratov, if not by the way.

      Kyiv does not give exact numbers of killed and wounded soldiers, but the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are very large, Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK Vadim Prystaiko told Newsweek.
      "We are losing people to the right and to the left ... You can imagine that the numbers are huge, incomprehensible," he said.

      Well, if you "almost in every frame" see only equipment abandoned by the Russian Federation, then this really leads to certain thoughts ... There is a video of how a Ka-52 that has sat down due to a malfunction was blown up. So they do what they can.

      Yes, they don’t often flash there, there’s no need to cast a shadow on the wattle fence, they have quite big problems with its repair, so they often try to insert the same combat unit into the frame ... But what is instead of their own is purely "Ukrainian" weapons are increasingly flickering foreign ones, yes ...

      Well, according to the stories of Ukrainian propagandists, they left so many tanks there that it is not clear why they need Western supplies. And why captured and then destroyed T-72s appear much less frequently than, for example, Turkish armored vehicles, of which fifty have been delivered throughout the country. Perhaps just shots from different sides show?

            Well, I would try in the Wehrmacht who would admit to the rejection of Nazi ideology and sympathy for leftist ideas.
            Dislike for Hitler and his ideology in the Reich was considered a criminal offense and was punishable by law.
            And what is being done in today's Ukraine with those who are suspected of sympathizing with the "Moskal orks" is also well known.

          You are right, I am a Russian propagandist. I love Russia like a son sincerely and tenderly.
          One of our main (primarily leadership) mistakes was the belief that you are our brothers. Come to your aid, take power into your own hands, drive out the Nazis, and remain independent in certain regions. Donbass was pushed into Ukraine for 8 years... They didn't go further in 2014, more regions didn't want to join... Subsidies for 30 years for gas. What else did you need? Spread honey on your ass? Regions to which you have nothing to do did not want to let go. How did you meet the brothers?
          Yes, all these are Nazis, the same as the Wehrmacht during the Great Patriotic War. I recall a conversation between a captured officer and Sladkov. (If I'm not mistaken) He asked: "Do any of the officers have any doubts when they shoot at the peaceful city of Donetsk?" Answer: "no".
          Do I feel sorry for the population 404 oh? Of course, children are a pity, the adult population is not. The population is affected by Nazism. Ukraine needs to be passed through the fire, the fire of purification, purification from Nazism, without this, alas, there is no way.

            Good! Can Ukrainians have love for Ukraine? Or do you refuse them and they can only be Nazis? The tragedy of Ukraine is that people came to power there who serve the interests of another state. At the same time, replacing both history and reality with their own with perverted interpretations, they are inciting Ukrainians against Russia with their entire state apparatus.

              Do you doubt that the soldiers of the Wehrmacht and the SS loved Germany? But love for Germany did not prevent them from hating all the Slavs indiscriminately and many other nations, from hating and ruthlessly killing them in the name of love for Germany! Modern Ukraine is a direct analogue of Germany in the 40s, and how that Germany should be broken and brought to its knees! Perhaps this will sober up intoxicated heads and make you look at the world soberly!

We just need to recognize the fact that now we are fighting not for the "Ukrainian people", but for the fact that on the territory of the former Ukraine to eliminate a NATO combat unit formed from Ukrainians, maintained by NATO and subordinate to the NATO Chiefs of Staff Committee.

    In fact, it is already clear that Russia is at war not with Ukraine, but with the NATO bloc.
    For without the colossal infusions of the collective West (finance, weapons, mercenaries), Ukraine would have been forced into peace long ago.
    But the Western states, led by the US, have again huddled together and once again hope to destroy Russia.

    where is the limit of that meat grinder.? and for what ? you don't have enough land?

    The reason for the war is not at all a lack of territory, and you should know this very well. Do not compare Russia with the Nazi regimes in Ukraine and the West. For almost eight years, civilians who did not participate in the armed conflict have become victims of massive shelling from large-caliber artillery, mortars, grenade launchers and small arms. Women, children and the elderly perished. Objects of civilian infrastructure and vital activity were destroyed and damaged. As a result, at least 5 civilians were among the wounded. More than 500 civilians died. More than 2 civilian infrastructure facilities were destroyed and partially destroyed. So what? Would they continue to kill, burn, shoot and bomb? It’s a pity that they didn’t catch on in 600, maybe then they managed to avoid so many victims among the population of Donbass? A huge grouping was formed in the Donbass, which would go at a convenient moment for the United States to attack the republics of Donbass. The size and power of this group is such that the defenders of the republics would not have a single chance to resist it. Russia faced a choice: either to observe from the outside the destruction of the republics with further genocide of their population, a significant part of which are already citizens of the Russian Federation, or to intervene. An attempt to sit on the sidelines would mean a catastrophic blow to the reputation and trust in power within Russia and humiliation in the international arena. Inflicting a preemptive strike, we did not lose anything, as if we had intervened in the course of the current situation and would have received exactly the same reaction from the West that we are seeing today. The United States prepared a trap for Russia to start hostilities in extremely difficult and unfavorable conditions. Russia's war in Ukraine was inevitable and we are fighting there not with Kyiv, but with Washington, which is fighting with the hands of Ukrainians and mercenaries from all over the world. The main thing is that they managed to completely cancel the American scenario by starting hostilities first.

    according to people who, for a number of reasons, returned from the front: "Ukrainians have not been fighting for a long time, mercenaries, the losses are colossal, but they are like zombies."

    The tragedy of Ukraine is that people came to power there who serve the interests of another state.

    The tragedy of Russia is exactly the same. As a result, Ukrainians hate Russians, Russians hate Ukrainians. The Americans and the British look at this and periodically piss a little in their pants with joy.
    And the jingoistic patriots on both sides are tearing their throats, admitting to kill as many Slavs as possible ...

      Russia has a well-founded interest, not the expansion of NATO to the east! But no one heard her and did not want to take into account her interests request

    Quote from starina
    It is necessary to identify and execute all Nazis in the liberated lands. War criminals were shot, civilians were hanged.

    A new definition of the term "genocide".
    But.. fool
    I explain.
    Taking into account the fact that, according to the opinion of a huge number of Russians in Ukraine, almost all Nazis are, then everything is as the papal legate Amalrik said. "Kill everyone, the Lord recognizes his own"

    Are people running out? That's right, goiter go to waste, smart, cunning, cunning with a penny dumped over the cordon. Those who have begun to see clearly, I hope there are such, surrender. I think that in the spring we will see formations of the Zelyajugend (18-) and detachments of the Ukrainian Volkssturm (60+).

    Prystaiko je psychicky nemocny Pitbul. Takových by nebylo škoda poslat do Bachmutu.

        Prystaiko is not sick. Prystaiko is a Nazi. Real, European and Anglo-Saxon. And there is no Ukraine and never will be. Why is he an ambassador there?

    Still wouldn't admit it. This is London. Not only statistics, but MI6 knows everything.
