烏克蘭總統稱,自俄羅斯兩年前開始軍事進攻以來,基輔軍隊的總死亡人數僅為3.1萬人

Only 31,000 Ukrainian troops have been killed in two years of fighting with Russian forces, President Vladimir Zelensky has declared, alleging a casualty figure far below even the estimates of Kiev’s Western benefactors.

烏克蘭總統弗拉基米爾·澤連斯基宣布,在與俄羅斯軍隊的兩年戰斗中,只有3.1萬名烏克蘭士兵喪生,聲稱傷亡數字甚至遠低于基輔的西方捐助者的估計。

Speaking on Sunday in the country’s capital, Zelensky claimed that “31,000 Ukrainian military personnel have been killed in this war – not 300,000, not 150,000, not whatever [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and his deceitful circle have been lying about. But nevertheless, each of these losses is a great sacrifice for us.”

澤連斯基周日在烏克蘭首都發表講話稱,“3.1萬名烏克蘭軍人在這場戰爭中喪生,不是30萬,不是15萬,也不是(俄羅斯總統弗拉基米爾)普京和他的欺騙圈子所撒謊的那樣?!钡?,每一次損失對我們來說都是巨大的犧牲?!?/b>

Zelensky offered no estimates for the number of Ukrainian soldiers wounded or missing. He claimed “tens of thousands” of civilian deaths in areas occupied by Russian forces, but he conceded that precise figures weren’t available. “We don’t know how many of our civilians they killed.”

澤連斯基沒有提供烏克蘭士兵受傷或失蹤人數的估計數字。他聲稱在俄羅斯軍隊占領的地區有“數萬”平民死亡,但他承認沒有確切的數字?!拔覀儾恢浪麄儦⒑α硕嗌倨矫??!?/b>

The purported death toll marks the first official casualty figure reported by the Kiev regime since the conflict with Russia began in February 2022. The Russian Defense Ministry has pegged Ukrainian troop losses at around 400,000, including more than 215,000 in 2023 alone. That estimate was released last month, before Russian forces reportedly took out more than 1,500 Ukrainian troops while liberating the key Donbass stronghold of Avdeevka last weekend.

所謂的死亡人數是基輔政權自2022年2月與俄羅斯發生沖突以來首次公布的官方傷亡數字。俄羅斯國防部估計,烏克蘭軍隊的損失約為40萬,僅在2023年就超過21.5萬。這一估計是上個月公布的。據報道,俄羅斯軍隊上周末在解放頓巴斯的重要據點Avdeevka時,消滅了1500多名烏克蘭軍隊。

US officials told the New York Times last August that about 70,000 Ukrainian troops had been killed and as many as 120,000 had been wounded. Those same unidentified officials pegged Russian casualties at up to 120,000 killed and 180,000 wounded. Washington’s estimated casualty ratio was sharply at odds with Putin’s claim last June that Kiev was losing ten times as many troops as Moscow. Western intelligence agencies reportedly estimated troop losses of 150,000 on each side in the first year of the conflict.

去年8月,美國官員告訴《紐約時報》,約有7萬烏克蘭軍隊被殺,多達12萬人受傷。這些身份不明的官員稱,俄軍的傷亡人數高達12萬人,18萬人受傷。華盛頓估計的傷亡比例與普京去年6月的說法大相徑庭,普京稱基輔損失的軍隊是莫斯科的10倍。據報道,西方情報機構估計,在沖突的第一年,雙方各損失了15萬軍隊。

Zelensky’s figure of 31,000 deaths may sound familiar. He offered the same estimate for Russian combat deaths in June 2022, less than four months after Moscow’s offensive began. He claimed on Sunday that Russian forces had suffered 500,000 casualties, including 180,000 troops killed.

澤連斯基的3.1萬人死亡數字聽起來可能很熟悉。他對俄羅斯在2022年6月的戰斗死亡人數給出了同樣的估計,當時距離莫斯科開始進攻還不到四個月。他周日聲稱,俄羅斯軍隊傷亡50萬人,其中18萬人陣亡。

Although Zelensky has downplayed Kiev’s troop losses, the casualties were apparently high enough that, according to him, the Ukrainian Army requested the mobilization of up to 500,000 new soldiers in December.

盡管澤連斯基淡化了基輔軍隊的損失,但據他說,傷亡人數顯然很高,烏克蘭軍隊在12月要求動員多達50萬名新兵。
