Ukraine’s Propaganda Cranked to Eleven

Ukrainian President Zelensky says that Ukraine has only lost 31,000 military personnel since 2022, not 300,000. That is a lie. He’s verifiably a liar and a bad person.

“31,000 Ukrainian military personnel have been killed in this war. Not 300,000, not 150,000, not whatever Putin and his deceitful circle have been lying about. But nevertheless, each of these losses is a great sacrifice for us,” Zelenskyy is quoted as saying on Sunday at the “Ukraine. Year 2024” forum in Kyiv.

Even the New York Times, which loves this war, put the death toll at at least 120,000 last August, which would be four times Zelensky’s fabricated number.

Ukraine has refused to give official death counts but Russia has estimated the death count to be closer to 300,000. Russia says that Ukraine has lost 159,000 troops since the “counteroffensive” began last June. That counteroffensive gained no territory but lost many lives as well as equipment including, according to Russia, “121 aircraft, 766 tanks, and 2,348 armored combat vehicles.”

Despite that, Zelensky says that Ukraine has another counteroffensive planned but he can’t share the details.

“We have a plan, a clear plan. I cannot reveal details, I have no right to do this. This plan is linked with some changes in the command,” he said this weekend. He said this very same thing about last June’s counteroffensive and it only cost lives.

The U.S. knows that the lack of a trained military in Ukraine is a problem. On Sunday, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan admitted that the U.S. can send F-16s to Ukraine but “there aren’t many pilots to be able to pilot those aircraft.”
