The Russian offensive in northern Kharkiv region began a little over two weeks ago. Losses in this direction are 8 Russians to 1 Ukrainian, according to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an interview with Central Asian media.

He stated that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin does not care about human lives or what language they speak. In particular, he is indifferent to Russians, both civilians and military.

"Their breakthrough towards Kharkiv, which happened a little over two weeks ago, resulted in military casualties of 1 to 8, one Ukrainian to eight Russians," Zelenskyy said.

According to the president, as of this week, there have been about 2-3 thousand casualties among the occupiers.

"But he doesn't care at all. Putin is at the bathhouse, or wherever he is - at the spa, which has been shown more than once. He's busy with something else. But he won't wash his little hands clean of this bloodshed," the head of state noted.

Russian offensive

Since May 10, the Russian army has launched an offensive in northern Kharkiv region. Currently, battles are ongoing in the city of Vovchansk and nearby settlements. According to the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Russians are bogged down in street fighting in Vovchansk.

According to the head of the Kharkiv Regional Military Administration, Oleh Syniehubov, the Russian troops planned to reach and capture Vovchansk in two days and reach Kharkiv in five days.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine stated that the Defense Forces have stopped the occupiers in the Kharkiv region and are attacking when possible.
