Ukraine Gets A Win

Obviously, there is a lot of misinformation coming from both Russia and Ukraine, but this story appears to be genuine. That said, these facts may change.

One of Russia’s top generals was killed by a Ukrainian sniper yesterday. The death has been confirmed by the Russian media.

TWO more of Vladimir Putin’s top military chiefs have been killed after personally charging to the battlefield to rescue their stalled invasion.

As well as sniping General Andrei Sukhovetsky, it was tonight revealed Ukrainian soldiers have also picked off a Kremlin regional and a divisional commander.

The other two commanders have not yet been confirmed.

Western officials believe Russian top brass are exposing themselves on the frontline to spearhead drained and untrained rank-and-file troops.

One said: “That’s an indication of some degree of frustration and some degree of lack of progress – and they’re trying to impose their personality on the battlefield and putting themselves at personal risk.”

Unfortunately for the general, his personality is spilled all over Ukrainian soil.

  1. Rule #1 US officers wear muted, matte insignia in the field to make them harder to see and identify.
    Rule #2 You don’t salute US officers out in the open, where they can be seen by enemy snipers.

  2. When England and France were at war during Napoleon’s day, the English captured a French officer.

    “You English are so stupid,” the Frenchman said. “You were bright red uniforms which are very easy to see on the field. Why is that?”

    An English officer replied, “If we get wounded in battle, the blood doesn’t show as well, so our troops won’t be frightened and demoralized.”

    After the French officer was released, the French quickly changed the color of their uniforms to dark brown.

  3. Mike AKA Proof – When I worked the overnight shift as a rookie, I always saluted the sergeant when he came to sign my patrol log. He was a giant man and said, “Don’t do that! There may be snipers!” before laughing as he walked away. Nowadays that may be true.

    TXNick – I read about that in a book on the Revolution. We still beat their asses then.

  4. You wonder why a high-ranking Russian officer would do something so stupid as to personally wade into the mud and blood of battle and risk his life to try to salvage an action that is failing…
    Then you remember that that officer has a wife, and children, and parents, back home in Russia, and Vladimir Putin knows exactly who they are and where they can be found.

  5. JBSpry – I read a story which claimed Putin has been spending his time at home and not in the Kremlin. The implication was that maybe Putin is going the way of FJ Biden. Allegedly, he was forcing his inner circle to submit stool samples before meeting him, to make sure they do not have any illnesses.

    Take that for what it is. Maybe nothing, but maybe he is losing his mind.

  6. You’ll have to look far and wide to find an American general that would get close enough to combat to be at risk like that. And you’d probably still fail to find one.

    I see this as a sign of leadership and bravery that the American military no longer has. During the American Civil War, it was not unusual for generals to be killed, wounded, or captured. Nowadays they do their general-ing by Powerpoint.

    1. I saw a video on Twatter earlier of a captured Russian soldier being interviewed by Ukraine. The guy is an absolute gem, and he explains how Putin and their media lied to them to force then into Ukraine.

      It’s nine minutes long, but deserves your time.
