A total of 450 Russian troops have been killed so far in the ongoing military operation in Ukraine, claimed UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace. However, he acknowledged that there is no hint of halting their military campaign.
The British Defense Secretary said on Friday (February 25) that despite the operation in Ukraine, Russia has still not been able to “occupy” any major territory. “However, it seems that they are aiming to occupy entire Ukraine.”
“The information we have shows that Russia has not been able to capture anything big so far,” Ben Wallace said, informing that among these, 450 Russian soldiers lost their lives.
However, the Russian military seems to have failed to meet the goals set by Russian President Vladimir Putin, he added.
Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss called the ongoing Russian military operation in Ukraine “barbaric”. In a tweet, Liz Truss said Putin’s attack on Ukraine was “barbaric” - which is irrational and ruthless negligence for human life. “We will continue to take action against it,” she added.
