Vladimir Putin’s spokesman has admitted a “significant” loss of Russian troops since the invasion of Ukraine began, telling Sky News their deaths are a “tragedy”. Dmitry Peskov, in his first broadcast interview with Western media, also said Russia hopes “this operation” will reach its goals “in the coming days”.
He told Sky News’ Mark Austin that “we’re living in days of fakes and lies” and verified photos and satellite images of dead civilians in the streets of Ukrainian cities were a “bold fake”.
However he did admit: “We have significant losses of troops and it’s a huge tragedy for us.” And in the first hint the Kremlin wants to see an end to the war – although in what form is unknown – he said: “Our military are doing their best to bring an end to that operation.”
