Putin tells mothers of Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine: 'We share your pain'.

President Vladimir Putin on Friday (November 25) met the mothers of soldiers who had been fighting in Ukraine, telling them that he and the entire Russian leadership shared their suffering.

Hundreds of thousands of Russian soldiers have been sent to fight in Ukraine - including some of the more than 300,000 reservists who were called up as part of a mobilisation announced by Putin in September.
