A commander of an elite unit of Ukrainian marines has told Sky News the majority of his best trained troops have been injured or killed
Speaking to Sky News near the front line south of the city of Severodonetsk, a company commander called Oleksandr said a core of experienced soldiers who had been fighting together since 2018 had been lost
He said his unit destroyed 19 Russian vehicles, and killed dozens of enemy soldiers
He claimed these corpses remain because the Russians show no interest in removing them
If his unit are not fighting on the front, he says he has to train his soldiers as many are new and inexperienced
Iryna is the leader of the medical crew of Ukraine’s 5th Hospitalier Brigade
In the previous few days she said they’ve rescued 22 men – two had died.
The numbers of dead and injured worry her.
Iryna says there are plenty of Ukrainians willing to take their place but they lack the skills
Since February 24 Iryna has dedicated her life to care for wounded soldiers
