Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

A top Russian general has been killed amid bitter fighting in Ukraine in what represents a major blow to the Russian invasion.

Major General Andrey Sukhovetsky, who was the deputy commander of the 41st Combined Arms Army of Russia’s Central Military District, died yesterday as Ukrainian defence forces repelled the Russian offensive.

His death has not yet been officially confirmed by Russia’s Ministry of Defence, but was announced on social media by his colleague Sergey Chipilyov and was widely reported by several Russian and Ukrainian news outlets.

Sukhovetsky twice participated in the Victory Parade in Moscow’s Red Square, and was awarded two Orders of Courage, the Order of Military Merit and the Medal of Courage.

He also received special commendation for his participation in Russia’s annexation of Crimea

A military source confirmed that he was killed ‘by a sniper’, and suggested a funeral for the Major General – by far the most senior Russian figure to have died in the conflict thus far – will be held in Russia on Saturday.

After days of denial, the Kremlin yesterday admitted that 498 of its troops have been killed and 1,600 injured in the ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine, but the true figure is almost certainly higher.

Ukraine’s armed forces meanwhile claimed today that Russia’s army had suffered 9,000 casualties – though the statement recognised that the calculation of the death toll ‘is complicated by the high intensity of hostilities’.
