No one knows how many soldiers have been killed in Ukraine since Russia launched its full-scale invasion in 2022. A few weeks ago, President Volodymyr Zelensky said the Ukrainian military death toll was 31,000, but independent experts say the real number is probably much higher. Russia doesn’t release numbers. In the chaos of advance or retreat, the bodies of soldiers from both sides are often left behind. DW correspondent Jan-Philipp Scholz accompanied volunteers trying to find and identify them.

I feel sorry for both sides. I could only imagine the mothers and fathers that have lost their sons or daughters in this horrible war.

Enormous respect to the people of Ukraine. What you've been dealt is not good at all but you remain very decent human beings. Love from Uganda

Doing the Lord's work! "They kill us, but we remain human." I couldn't have put it better. Kudos to the soldiers who don't lose sight of what they're fighting for and hold human dignity dear to their hearts! It brings to mind the history of the American Field Service, the volunteer wartime ambulance service turned cultural exchange program. Proud to be an alumni and proud of anyone who fights for peace, freedom and human rights.

all lies! There were only 31K KIA in Ukraine and all bodies have been already recovered. UKA lacks manpower because it only had 850 K last year and apparently 3 to 400K went on holiday or on sick leave.

There were no Ukrainian soldiers corpses, those were civilians or Russian soldiers corpses, because only very very very few Ukrainian soldiers killed in this war. (According to western mainstrean medias).
