100,000 Ukrainian soldiers have died in conflict – EU
Ursula von der Leyen provided the estimate, adding that around 20,000 civilian lives have also been lost

European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen has presented the total number of losses estimated to have been suffered by Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.

“More than 100,000 Ukrainian military officers have been killed so far,” von der Leyen claimed on Wednesday, while adding that around 20,000 civilian lives have also been lost amid the fighting, which has continued since late February.

The head of the European Commission didn’t reveal the sources of the information she provided.

In late September, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu stated that Ukrainian losses had to date amounted to more than 61,000 troops, which was ten times higher than those of Russia.

In her address, von der Leyen also proposed to set up a specialized, UN-backed court to investigate and prosecute what she described as “Russia’s crime of aggression.”....'

Her video was modified since. Watch what she says, or doesn't say, with the modification. The US/EU don't wamt the world to know Ukrainian forces have been completely destroyed by Russia. And, more deaths to come unless Ukraine surrenders.

Re: 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers have died in conflict – EU
Ukraine objects to EU assessment of its casualties
The number of dead is “sensitive” and up to Kiev's top officials to release, a presidential spokesman insisted

Ukraine has reacted badly to a claim from European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. that it has lost more than 100,000 personnel in the conflict with Russia.

Released via Twiitter, it was deleted from von der Leyen's account earlier on Wednesday. Kiev argued that it was up to President Vladimir Zelensky and top Ukrainian officials to voice such numbers.

However, officials did not deny the European Commission President's estimates.

Zelensky’s spokesman, Sergey Nikoforov, told Ukrainian media on Wednesday that such “sensitive” information should only be made public by the country’s top military commander General Valery Zaluzhny, Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov, or the president himself.

Earlier in the day, the head of the EU executive branch cited an assessment that more than 100,000 Ukrainian troops and over 20,000 civilians have been killed in the conflict with Russia. The video statement has since been pulled from her Twitter account and replaced with a new version, which omits the figures. Von der Leyen did not identify the source of the assessment.

Earlier in the month, US General Mark Milley, who serves as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that over 100,000 soldiers may have been killed and wounded on each side of the conflict, with 40,000 civilians killed as collateral damage......'

Russian official criticizes EC data lowballing Ukrainian losses by half

According to Vladimir Rogov, the statement by von der Leyen can be viewed as information about heavy Ukrainian losses made public

MELITOPOL, November 30. /TASS/. Irretrievable losses of Ukrainian troops have so far exceeded 200,000 people and are twice as heavy as the estimate presented by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Vladimir Rogov, who heads the We Stand With Russia movement, told TASS on Wednesday.

"The estimate could have been relevant back a few months ago, but so far the losses sustained by the regime of [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky are much greater than the figure mentioned by von der Leyen. Not just the estimates, but the information from Ukrainian hospitals and clinics confirms that. According to information at my disposal, irretrievable losses of Ukrainian militants and national battalions have topped 200,000, and the number of those wounded, often severely wounded people who will never be able to either get employed or return to normal life, is as large," he specified.

According to Rogov, the statement by von der Leyen can be viewed as information about heavy Ukrainian losses made public. "Huge losses that can no longer be hushed up are being legalized. Being more sophisticated in manipulating public opinion, the Europeans are neatly legalizing 100,000 killed Ukrainian troops, while they know only too well that irretrievable losses exceed 200,000 people," Rogov explained.

Earlier on Wednesday, von der Leyen said it was estimated that more than 100,000 Ukrainian military officers and more than 20,000 civilians had been killed since February. The EC also raised its estimate of the damage sustained by Ukraine in the conflict from €385 billion as of late October to €600 billion. The European Commission later deleted the information about 100,000 killed Ukrainians from von der Leyen’s video address and the readout.

Ex-Russian president mocks EU over deleted claim on Ukrainian losses

Dmitry Medvedev claimed that Ursula von der Leyen’s actions betrayed her subservience to the US

Self-censorship from European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, after she deleted a tweet which mentioned Ukrainian casualties, is “humiliating”, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.

He added that the climbdown showed the bloc is nothing but a US puppet.

“It is obvious that ‘Aunt Ursula’ was slapped upside the head by her bosses in Washington,” Medvedev said in a post on VK. “Seemed to hurt, too. It looks extremely humiliating.”

There is no EU, there is only the 51st [US] state.

The president of the EU executive body had claimed in a speech that 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers had died in the fighting so far, along with 20,000 civilians. Soon afterward, however, the tweet about it on von der Leyen’s account vanished. The reference was also removed from the transcript of the speech on the European Commission’s website, and edited out of the video the EC shared on social media again.

The self-censorship was subsequently confirmed, with spokeswoman Dana Spinant saying the number had been an “estimation” from “external sources” and referred to all casualties – those killed and wounded combined. Spinant also thanked everyone who “pointed out the inaccuracy” in von der Leyen’s original speech.

Medvedev served as the president of Russia between 2008 and 2012, and then as prime minister until 2020, when he accepted the post of deputy chairman of the National Security Council. ....'
