The 6-week war forced more than 4 million Ukrainians to flee abroad, thousands killed and injured, displaced a quarter of the country’s population, transformed cities in rubble and the military operation prompted the West to impose restrictions on the Russian economy and elites in the country, and led to the imposition of a kind of global isolation on Russia.

Russia has previously admitted that its operation has not progressed as quickly as it would have liked, but Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed regret at the high death toll on Thursday.

“We have heavy casualties in the ranks of the troops. It is a great tragedy for us,” Peskov told Sky News.

Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said the country’s economy is facing the most difficult situation of the past three decades due to unprecedented Western sanctions.

Russia claims it launched a “special military operation” on February 24 to disarm Ukraine and free it from Nazi ideology, which Kiev and its Western allies reject as a false justification.

Moscow denies targeting civilians and says the photos of the bodies in Bucha were fabricated to justify imposing further sanctions on Moscow and obstructing talks by pace.
