The bodies of Russian soldiers killed during the war in Ukraine are kept in an air-conditioned train parked at a rail yard on the outskirts of the capital. Among them are the bodies of hundreds of others, who are waiting to be sent to their families. Most of these have been brought from the Kyiv region, while the rest from Chernohiv and other areas. Wearing a head-to-toe protective suit, Chief Civil-Military Liaison Officer Voldomir Lemzin said air-conditioned trains parked at stations in other regions are also being used for the same purpose.
So far no reliable source has been able to get information about how many Russian soldiers have been killed in the war, but it is clear that it has been a bitter experience for President Putin. A day earlier, Ukraine had released a picture of a river in the Donbass region, which was attacked and destroyed by a Russian armored squad trying to cross it. The main battle is now going on in the Donbas area. Britain has reported an attack on an armored squad attempting to cross the river via the pontoon bridge.
Russia will take precautionary measures if NATO builds nuclear infrastructure near the border
Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Gurshko has warned that Russia will take adequate precautionary measures as a precaution if NATO countries build nuclear infrastructure near their border or deploy specialist troops.
