Ukraine storing Russia's dead in refrigerated train as Moscow 'loses' battle for key city

Ukraine has taken hundreds of Russian soldiers dead and stored them in a train refrigerated to transport them home to their families.

According to Volodymyr Lyamzin, chief civil-military liaison officer of Ukraine, the soldiers were brought from the Kyiv region, Chernihiv’s northern city, and other areas to a rail yard outside Kiev.

Although there are no reliable estimates on the deaths of Russian troops, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian President, has stated that 27,000 soldiers died in the conflict.

The compartments were emptied of body bags by people wearing protective suits from head to toe.

Lyamzin stated that there were more refrigerated trains in other parts of the country, and they were being used for the exact same purpose.

Anton Garashenko, the Ukrainian interior minister, claimed that there are over 250 soldiers who have died in their cars and that Russia is still not collecting them.

This comes as Ukraine claims that Russian troops are beginning to withdraw from its second largest city, after weeks of heavy bombardment.

After its failed capture of Kyiv, Moscow made Kharkiv a major target.

But, the troops have had a difficult time gaining any ground.

One Western official stated that “the Russians haven’t made much tactical gains lately” and described the front line of the war as “oscillating.”

“The Ukrainians continue to launch counterattacks around Kherson, Kharkiv. The official who requested anonymity said that they expect the battle to turn into an attritional war.

Ukraine won the battle for Kharkiv

According to the general staff of Ukraine, Russian forces are withdrawing from Kharkiv. They will now concentrate on securing supply routes and launch mortar, artillery and air strikes in the eastern Donetsk area.

According to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), this indicates that Ukraine has won the battle of Kharkiv.

The Russian forces have “generally not tried to hold ground” against the counterattacks of Ukrainian forces in the past few days, it said.

According to the ISW, “Russian troops were prevented from entering, let alone seizing Kharkiv by Ukrainian forces and then they were expelled from the city as they did to Russian forces trying to seize Kyiv.”

“Reports by Western officials and a video of an officer from the Donetsk People’s Republic show that Moscow is focused upon a orderly withdrawal. It prioritizes getting Russians home before allowing proxy troops to enter Russia. This is in contrast to trying to keep its positions close to the city.
