Armed Forces search teams have discovered nearly 500 bodies of missing Ukrainian soldiers since Russia’s full-scale invasion began in Feb. 2022, said Colonel Volodymyr Lyamzin, head of the General Staff’s Central Department of Civil-Military Cooperation, Ukrinform reported on April 22.

As of April 2023, approximately 7,000 military personnel are still considered missing, he added.

“Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion until April 20 of this year, a little less than half of the bodies of our fallen defenders were found by our military search teams. A little over half of the bodies of the invaders were collected and delivered to designated storage locations,” he said.
