A Ukrainian military commander has told Sky News that 80% of troops have been killed or injured in his elite marines unit. 

The commander, Oleksandr, told the news site that his unit was "100% made up of professional soldiers who have a lot of experience. Now, 80% are incapacitated from serious injuries or death."

Oleksander spoke near the city of Severodonetsk where a bloody battle between Russian and Ukrainian forces lasted several weeks.

Asked if he's able to sustain these losses for much longer, he said "It's hard. It's hard but we have no choice."

It is reported that Russia is also losing large numbers of troops, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying that the invasion is losing its "forward momentum."
