The Ukrainian army has managed to eliminate at least 10 Russian generals over the course of the war, the UK’s Military Intelligence said in their daily Twitter update on Aug. 7.
The Kremlin has also fired several other of its top military brass – for insufficient invasion progress, presumably, further depleting their general staff.
“General Aleksandr Dvornikov has subsequently been removed after being given overall command of the operation in Ukraine,” UK intelligence reported, commenting on a string of top Russian commanders losing their posts.
“General-Colonel Aleksandr Chayko was dismissed as Commander of the Eastern Military District in May. General-Colonel Aleksandr Zhuravlev, who has commanded the Western Military District since 2018, was absent from Russia’s Navy Day in St Petersburg on July 31, and has highly likely been replaced by General-Lieutenant Vladimir Kochetkov.”
