Vladimir Putin became so personally involved in the war in Ukraine that he made operational and tactical decisions “at the level of a colonel or brigadier general”, following a model that led Hitler to disaster in World War II, Western military sources said. by The Guardian.
The Russian president is helping to determine the movement of forces in the Donbas, they added, as the invaders suffered a bloody defeat last week while repeatedly trying to cross a strategic river in eastern Ukraine.
The sources added that Putin is still working closely with General Valeri Gherasimov, the commander of the Russian armed forces, contrary to the statements made by Ukraine last week, according to which the military leader was shot dead.
“We believe that Putin and Gerasimov are involved in making tactical decisions at a level that we would normally expect to be taken by a colonel or a brigadier general,” the military source said, according to g4media.ro.
