Since the beginning of Russia's aggression in the Donbas, more than 2750 Ukrainian servicemen have been killed.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko reported on the number at the premiere of the film "Cyborgs".
“More than 2,750 Ukrainian military, in particular, about 2.4 thousand from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, gave their lives for Ukraine to be preserved. For each piece of native land,” he noted.
Poroshenko said that he had returned from the Yavorove test site in Lviv region, where he, with his American partners, handed over new weapons and technologies to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
"I was extremely pleased to hear the words of the American general who said: "Mr. President, I would like you to know that in Yavorov we learn more from you, at least not less than you learn from us," said the Head of state.
Earlier, the President said that the word "Cyborg" will forever remain in the history of the Ukrainian troops.
The presentation of the film "Cyborgs" by the Ukrainian director of the Crimean Tatar origin Akhtem Seitablaev took place in Kyiv on December 4. The film tells about the heroism of the Ukrainian military who defended the Donetsk airport from the Russian aggressors.
