Ukraine’s President Volodomyr Zelensky said his country may be losing 50-100 lives a day in the east.
The figure is likely to refer to military casualties and hints at how fierce the fighting has become, reports BBC.
The UK's Ministry of Defence said Russia has suffered a toll similar to the Afghan-Soviet conflict. On the contrary, Russia is stepping up efforts to capture the eastern city of Severodonetsk, and are said to be using "scorched earth" tactics.
Besides, the Ukrainian government said Kyiv will not agree a ceasefire deal with Moscow that involves giving away any territory.
