Typical misplacement of decimal point.

Or is it that most of the dead have not returned home so are not included in the classification of those returning?

The emphasis might be on "return home". The rest might be left there?

SpaceX has handed Ukraine a major boost to combat Russia's aggression, as Kyiv has signed a new deal,, with funding from several European countries, to receive more than 22,000 more Starlink terminals in the coming months, according to government official Mykhailo Fedorov.

He also clarified all financial issues have been resolved, “at least until the spring”, referring to an incident last month when 1,300 Starlink satellite units went offline over a funding issue. So far, the SpaceX
has provided Kyiv with over 10,000 ground terminals.

Well, it won't be. But perhaps an indicator of why DE is reluctant to give UKR much in the way of hardware, when their own materiel seems a little 'deficient'.

I was going to ask that question myself. we know that the wounded are roughly 3 times the dead so where are they.

I am normally an easy going person but I do hope the death penalty will be brought back if they do not have it and some of these bastards will be found and they will be lined up against a wall and shot. I would bring in mandatory dna testing for any Russians travelling abroad.

I think my heart missed several beats reading this, absolute blood boiling material. It's time to stop giving Ukraine the weapons to extend the war rather than end it swiftly.

Grotesque. Poor poor innocent child, what barbarians, and they are at our collective gate.
We are in the presence of great evil.
If you have tears to shed, shed them now.

From BBC News on-line an hour ago ...

Vladimir Putin believes Russia is not to blame for the war in Ukraine, adding both countries are "sharing a tragedy".During a televised address with senior military officials, the Russian president said he continued to see Ukraine as a "brotherly nation". He claimed the conflict was "the result of the policy of third countries" and not down to Russian policy. The theory, which implies Western expansion is the cause, has been repeatedly dismissed outside Russia. President Putin claimed the West had "brainwashed" post-Soviet republics, starting with Ukraine. He said: "For years, we tried to build good-neighbourly relations with Ukraine, offering loans and cheap energy, but it did not work. "There's nothing to accuse us of. We've always seen Ukrainians as a brotherly people and I still think so. "What's happening now is a tragedy, but it's not our fault."
