"Of course the quick ending of the war will be expected of us, although all realize the war cannot be finished quickly. This issue is not solved by the Parliament. It is a long way, which all the country and all of us together should come through," Razumkov noted.
The number of confirmed deaths caused by the war was 12,800–13,000 as of the end of 2018. By mid-May 2019, the UN confirmed 3,331 civilians had been killed in the conflict. Ukrainian government forces have lost a confirmed total of 4,290 killed servicemen by early August 2019, including 206 foreign-born Ukrainian citizens and 13 foreigners.
