"There are a lot of young guys among us. We need people, but they are those who have been trained, and not the green ones that we have now," the Ukrainian soldier said.

According to him, there are those in the Ukrainian army who have been trained in just three weeks.

Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stressed that the effective actions of the Russian Armed Forces in the zone of the special operation significantly reduced the combat capabilities of the Ukrainian army.

According to Shoigu, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost more than 125 thousand people in the six months of the counteroffensive.
