The ratio of casualties at the front is currently 6 Russians to 1 Ukrainian. These are the statistics for the Kharkiv and Pokrovsk sectors, says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"Today, 1 Ukrainian to 6 Russians are killed. We had statistics of about 4 times, and now in the Kharkiv direction, Pokrovsk direction, the figures are 1 to 6," the head of state said.

Zelenskyy emphasized that modern warfare is technological. Therefore, the one who is more technologically advanced wins at the front.

"I am not saying that we will fight to the end and we have enough people. No, I mean that all this talk about a large number of people, millions of people, yes, they are right, but this is a different war. This is a technological war. Whoever is more technologically advanced can win," the president added.
