Russia has reportedly confirmed the death of its youngest soldier who was sent out for the hostile Ukraine invasion recently.
The deceased was identified as 18-year-old Yegor Pochkaenko who passed away after being killed in a recent battle with Ukraine’s forces.
Sources added how he was just 18 years old and his birthday was one day away.
Meanwhile, anger and frustration have mounted in Russia after President Putin was accused of deploying such young soldiers in the invasion and hence were being used as cannon fodder.
While the Russians have been silent on unveiling the faces of those who have been killed by Ukraine so far, this teenager’s death happens to be one of the few incidents that are being widely publicized.
In the same way, the latest death of the teen is also being declared as the youngest Russian victim to have died in the war so far. But he is part of a handful of others that have been killed. However, their identities are yet to be revealed in the eyes of the public.
Heartbreaking images from the teen’s funeral are now going viral as fury mounts in the country regarding his death.
At the moment, Russia has failed to give the media an accurate figure regarding the number of war casualties that have taken place as they remain to be silent on the matter.
Moreover, very few funerals have been documented publicly too, confirmed experts.
Russia has also failed at referring to the hostile invasion as war. Instead, they have been instructed by Putin to refer to it as a special military operation.
Meanwhile, experts in the US claim that Russia has reportedly suffered at least 6000 deaths while a large number of soldiers remain wounded.
