Ukrainian forces have killed several senior staff members of the occupying Russian forces. This is reported by the Ukrainian army and they also give the names:
Lieutenant Colonel Dinar Khametiv, commander of the 200th Omsk Artillery Jet Division
Captain Denis Yagidar, commander of the paratrooper battalion of the 31st separate guards of the DShB
First Lieutenant Dmytro Zaitsev, commander of the Motorized Rifle Company
Lieutenant Munko Dorzhiev, commander of the DSADn 37 Omsbr platoon
Maxim Kontsov, Lieutenant of the Rosgarde
The killings have not yet been confirmed by the Russian side. The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense also showed photos of their killed opponents.
Russia has suffered unusually high casualties from its generals since the war of aggression began. Notable mistakes by the invading army are said to have been to blame. For example, the Ukraine is said to have easily managed to determine the locations of the commanders. Some of these had to communicate with each other by mobile phone – with Ukrainian SIM cards. The defense lawyers were not only able to listen in to all conversations, but also to determine the exact location of the telephones.
