Putin perfectly understands the losses in the

war

, which he unleashed against Ukraine.

He considers everyone who stands in the way of his attempts to restore the Soviet Union expendable.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said this in an interview with French media, UNIAN reports.

"I think he (Putin - ed.) has his own reasons, ambitious reasons, reasons for disrespect. He does not believe that there is a separate nation, separate people. He believes that we are part of his world, he wants the return of the Soviet Union, he believes that this is fair, and everyone who stands on this path is just expendable material," the head of state said.

At the same time, Zelensky is convinced that Putin knows exactly how many people are dying, but for him it is "an integral part of the plan."

According to him, the Russians in Ukraine act outside the rules of war - they abuse and torture people.

"I don't understand, even if they killed him, why did they hand over the body without parts, why are they doing it, what do they want to show?... This is an indicator. They (the Russians - ed.) think that they are scaring people with this, but on the contrary, it's not about intimidation, everyone understands that you can't talk to them after that, it's terrorism, not war anymore," Zelenskyy said.

The President of Ukraine recalled how Russians rejoice over the murders of Ukrainians on social networks.

At the same time, he reminded how Ukrainians, risking their lives, save animals.

"This is how it turned out, such a neighbor, such a historical tragedy, a historical bloody drama. We believe that life will still win, unfortunately, at such a high price," the head of state emphasized.

We will remind, as of September 24,

the total combat losses among the personnel of the Russian army are about 56,300 people.

The data is being verified.
