Ukraine quotes Homer Simpson revealing 63,380 Russian soldiers died in war

Ukraine’s Defense Ministry on Wednesday used a quote from cartoon character Homer Simpson when revealing the number of Russian military casualties in the war.

In a Twitter post, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said another 270 Russian soldiers were killed in combat on Wednesday, bringing the Russian military death toll to 63,380. The announcement was coupled with the quote: “You did your best and failed miserably. The lesson is never try.”

The quote was voiced by Homer Simpson in the 18th episode of The Simpsons season 5. In this episode, Mr. Burns, the series’ main antagonist, had a near-death experience and decided to hold an audition in hopes of finding his heir. Homer utters the quote after his two children, Lisa and Bart, fail the audition.

In conjunction with the Defense Ministry’s announcement, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (UAF) published a Facebook post noting that it was adjusting its estimate of Russia’s military tariffs after receiving “refined intelligence data.” The UAF General Staff said the estimates now include the deaths of Russian soldiers between February 24 and October 12.

“Due to the constant updating of refined intelligence data, it was necessary to adjust some positions of the total enemy losses. We are releasing the adjusted numbers, taking into account all currently available clarifications for the prior period, starting February 24, 2022,” the UAF Joint Chiefs of Staff wrote. “Clarification is always a ‘minus’ somewhere and a ‘plus’ somewhere. We ask for your understanding.

In the ongoing war, Russia continues to hit several cities in Ukraine with rocket fire, in what President Vladimir Putin has described as a response to the bombing of a bridge on the occupied Crimean Peninsula. However, Ukraine has not accepted responsibility for the bombing.

Despite the shelling, Ukraine said on Wednesday it had recaptured five more settlements in the southern Kherson region. The newly liberated settlements were Novovasylivka, Novogrygorivka, Nova Kamyanka, Tryfonivka and Chervone, RFE/RL reported, citing the President’s Office daily report.
