The Kremlin continues to search for those responsible for the failure of the “fast” war in Ukraine among the high command of the Russian army. In particular, the commander of the Western Military District, Colonel General Alexander Zhuravlev, who had held this post since 2018, was dismissed from his post.
Defense Express writes about this, citing its sources.
The publication notes that there is also unconfirmed information about the dismissal of the commander of the Eastern Military District, Colonel General Alexander Chaiko, who was appointed to the post only in November 2021.
“Most likely, they will be held responsible for the failure of the first stage of the invasion of the Russian army. It is worth recalling that the only commander of the military district who has not yet fallen into disgrace is General of the Army Alexander Dvornikov from the Southern Military District, who now commands all the forces of the Russian Federation in Ukraine “, the message says.
In turn, Dvornikov, according to the publication, is trying to find “his own scapegoats” who will be overthrown with huge losses in the Izyum direction and a sharp decrease in the scale of the ultimate goal of the “operation”.
Recall, on April 19, military expert Oleg Zhdanov said that Russian generals wrote a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to stop the war in Ukraine. In response, he said that the military operation would continue and asked for a list of these generals.
