More Russian Generals Reportedly Killed by Ukraine

AllSides Summary

According to Ukraine military officials quoted by news sources across the spectrum, at least five Russian generals have been killed in Ukraine.

Lieutenant-General Andrei Mordvichev is the latest to be reported killed. This is likely the highest death rate among generals in the Russian military since World War II. The reported deaths come as Russian troops encounter logistics problems and some decline of command and control ability, according to U.S. and Western intelligence sources. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy alleges that Ukraine's largest cities were blockaded by Russian forces in order to create miserable conditions and starve civilians. Meanwhile, thousands of civilians attempted to flee the port city of Mariupol, where Ukraine has rejected Russia's request for surrender.

Some sources also highlighted U.S. defense officials who downplayed the reports of fallen Russian generals and logistical issues.
