THE bodies of dead Russian soldiers have been piling up on refrigerated trains, a video shows.

The footage, shared by Ukraine’s railway chief Alexander Kamyshin, describes how Ukraine preserves the bodies of the fatalities.
The captions reads: “We treat dead #russians better than they treat live #ukrainians. Just another thing that makes us different.”
The clip states that Ukraine preserves the bodies “according to humanitarian law, to release them to mothers and wives.”
It adds: “Russia hides real losses from families. To avoid panic and to avoid payment of compensations.”
The video then explains how Ukraine preserves the bodies by storing them in refrigerated trains.
It adds that the railway is ready to deliver “cargo 200” to Russia- a Soviet military code term referring to war casualties.
The video ends: “Your ‘cargo of 200’ is waiting on demand”.
Meanwhile, according to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Putin’s bloody war has cost the lives of almost 30,000 soldiers.
Ukraine’s official statistics suggest that the Russian President has also lost over 1,200 tanks, 204 planes and 13 boats.
Earlier today Ukraine ruled out a ceasefire or any territorial concessions to Moscow.
Ukraine’s lead negotiator Mykhailo Podolyak said: “The (Russian) forces must leave the country and after that the resumption of the peace process will be possible,” adding that concessions would backfire because Russia would use the break in fighting to come back stronger.
Russia stepped up its attack in the country’s east and south, pounding the Donbas and Mykolaiv regions with airstrikes and artillery fire.
The heaviest fighting focused around the twin cities of Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk, interior ministry adviser Vadym Denysenko told Ukrainian television on Sunday.
Dramatic footage that emerged yesterday showed Ukraine’s forces blowing up a vacuum bomb launcher, one of Russia’s deadliest weapons.
It comes as America’s most senior general issued a stark warning that the world is facing an increased risk of “global war” amid rising threats from Russia and China.
General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: “The world you are being commissioned into has the potential for a significant international conflict between great powers. And that potential is increasing, not decreasing.”
“And right now, at this very moment, a fundamental change is happening in the very character of war.
