A Russian General Has Reportedly Been Eliminated On Ukraine Soil, The Second Alleged Massive Russian Loss In Two Weeks

This is not going the way Putin was hoping.

It has become so very evident over the course of the last week or so that the Ukrainians are a strong, powerful, proud people who absolutely will not back down to a dictatorial force — I hope Vladimir Puti, n is taking notes here. He is not securing the win I have no doubt he thought he would.

Breaking new reporting from intelligence officials in Ukraine has alleged that Ukrainian forces were successful in taking out the deputy commander of Russia’s 41st Army ground forces, Russian General-major Vitaly Gerasimov, near the city of Kharkiv, Ukraine.

This success is a massive one all on its own. But it becomes even more powerful still when coupled with reporting from just a few days ago indicating that another deputy commander of the 41st Army, Maj. Gen. Andrei Sukhovetsky was successfully eliminated by a Ukrainian sniper, making today’s news about Gerasimov the second report of a successful elimination of a high-profile Russian military official by Ukrainian forces.

A recent report from the New York Post has indicated that these two high-profile generals are far from the only massive losses Russian forces have encountered since brutally invading and attacking Ukraine. “A divisional commander and regimental commander died as a convoy of Russian tanks and other vehicles continued to struggle while heading for the capital city of Kyiv,” the report reads.

These brutal losses for Russian forces in Ukraine come amid multiple expert analyses theorizing a broader, overall loss for Vladimir Putin himself, as numerous experts on the matters opine that Putin just simply is not pulling this off as planned — Ukrainians, and specifically the Ukrainian president, has been far more forceful than expected; the Russian people are turning on Putin; he’s rapidly becoming desperate; the West is isolating him; his own soldiers are growing increasingly tired, hungry, cold, and impatient with their leadership; and the possibility of a coup or revolution is growing with each passing second.

Putin’s plan is shattering right before his eyes.
