Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky said 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers had been killed in the war with Russia, in a rare official statement on military losses sustained during the two-year war.

At a press conference in Kyiv, Zelensky said: "31,000 Ukrainian soldiers have died in this war. Not 300,000 or 150,000 or whatever Putin and his lying circle are saying. But each of these losses is a great loss for us."
