The Russian military didn’t expect such strong resistance from Ukrainian men and women in Donbas, said President Volodymyr Zelensky during his nightly address on June 7.

The hottest places are the same - Severodonetsk, Lysychansk, Popasna,” Zelensky noted.

“One can tell that the invaders didn’t expect that the resistance of our military would be so strong. Now they are trying to move additional resources to the Donbas axis. Same goes for Kherson - the Russians are deploying new units there to deter our actions.”

Zelensky said that in the invader’s intercepted communications, panic is noticeable.

“The majority of the invaders understand well that they have no prospects in Ukraine,” the President stated.

 “We record these moods of panic in corresponding intercepts. This mood dominates among the Russian army.”

Zelensky noted that on average, Russian troops lose about 300 personnel during every day of the war. Their total death toll exceeds 31,000.

“More than 31,000 Russian soldiers have already died in Ukraine,” he stated.

"Since February 24, Russia has been paying for a completely stupid war against Ukraine with almost 300 lives of its soldiers every day. The day will come when even for Russia the number of losses will cross the acceptable limit.”

On June 7, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine updated data on Russian casualties: over the past day, about 110 invaders were eliminated in Ukraine.

According to the General Staff, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Russia's total casualties amount to:

  • Personnel - about 31,360 (+110) eliminated,
    Tanks - 1,390 (+4) units,
