    Nearly 90 days into Vladimir Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine, Russian troops have apparently become so demoralized and desperate to quit they’ve begun deliberately injuring themselves. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate on Saturday released audio of what it said was an intercepted call revealing the batshit new trend. A man identified as a Russian soldier in an air assault brigade based in Ukraine’s Kherson region can be heard venting his frustrations to his mother and explaining why he wants to abandon the fight. “Why would they [the Ukrainians] surrender? We’re on their land,” the soldier tells his mother. “This won’t end anytime soon. What the hell do I need this for? At 20 years old… I’m not at all interested in Ukraine. I need to come back and resign,” he says. His astonished mother asks why there are no Russian troops in Ukraine determined to continue the fight for the sake of “patriotism,” but the soldier, Nikita, just scoffs. “I had a commander… who shot himself in the leg just to get out of here. And that...
    VLADIMIR Putin is being circled by "hardmen" who want him ousted over his terrible handling of the war in Ukraine, a former NATO commander has said. Sir James Everard, who served as NATO's Deputy Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, said Putin was "in trouble" and running out to time to stop a coup against him. 4Vladimir Putin is believed to be suffering poor health and his future is now tied to the war in UkraineCredit: AFP 4Sir James Everard said Putin is currently in a 'terrible place' and surrounded by men who would want to oust himCredit: Dan Charity - The Sun Speaking to The Sun Online, the Brit former squaddie, said: "Putin is in a terrible place. It was entirely of his own making. "There are hardmen in Russia who would have removed him if they had lost Ukraine to NATO and the EU. "He's acted and now the whole thing has gone badly wrong and he is vulnerable again and he is in trouble." It comes as Russia failed to achieve its military objective to have full...
    VLADIMIR Putin's top military commander has been wounded in Ukraine and was sent back to Russia just days after he arrived to take charge of the war. The Chief of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov had been sent by Putin to take personal control of his push to grab territory in Donbas and eastern Ukraine.  1Credit: East2West The unconfirmed claim is that Gerasimov, 66,  was wounded in Izyum in Ukraine’s Kharkiv region, which is at the centre of intense fighting, and where Russia’s ninth general Maj-Gen Andrei Simonov, 55, was killed, according to reports today.  An unofficial Russian source reported that Gerasimov sustained “a shrapnel wound in the upper third of the right leg without a bone fracture.  “The shard was removed - there is no danger to life.” Ukrainian government official Anton Gerashchenko said the attack on Izyum was “the very place where…Gerasimov, who personally came to lead the attack on Slavyansk, was located”. A “large number” of senior officers were killed, he said.  Pro-Ukr Telegram  channel Vertikal said Gerasimov had been “wounded near Izyum”.  “Our source reports...
    Russia has lost more than 300 officers fighting in Ukraine, according to new data collected by an independent Russian newspaper. In total, 317 officers of junior lieutenant rank and above have been killed in a little over two months of fighting, analysis by outlet MediaZona revealed today. Almost a third came from the most senior grades - major or above - including at least two generals and the deputy commander of Russia's Black Sea fleet. Vladimir Putin's army has suffered heavy losses since he ordered the invasion of Ukraine on February 24, with the UK this week saying 15,000 troops have died. Major General Andrei Sukhovetsky is one of the highest-ranking commanders that Russia has acknowledged were killed fighting in Ukraine Mikhail Nagamov, 41 (left), and Alexander Chirva (right), are two of the most-recent officers Russia has admitted died in its war on Ukraine MediaZona, which is currently blocked in Russia but continues to operate online, compiled its data by looking at public reports of troop deaths from local government officials, newspapers, or families posting on social media. That means the...
    This is the horrifying moment a shrieking Russian commander allegedly ordered his troops to shoot at Ukrainian civilians near besieged Mariupol as allegations of war crimes committed by Putin's invading forces in the European country stack up. In a foul-mouthed radio dispatch intercepted by Ukraine's SBU and published on the security service's official Facebook account, an unnamed soldier details the positions of non-combatants to nearby troops in a village near the southern port city. His superior then demands: 'Take them all f**king out', before doubling down on his bloodcurdling instructions as the troop says that two people emerging from a nearby grove were dressed in 'civilian clothes'. The commander screams: 'Off them all, f**k!'. The port city of Mariupol has become a living hell for those still trapped there by Russian occupiers. Local officials estimate up to 5,000 have died from Moscow's shelling, while 90 per cent of the city's infrastructure has been destroyed. In recent days, Ukraine's security officials have warned that Russia is preparing an alleged false flag provocation in the besieged city of Mariupol in which they...
    NATO has been defeated by Vladimir Putin calling the alliance's bluff over Ukraine, and should be replaced with a smaller coalition of nations prepared to be more offensive, Britain's former army commander said today. General Sir Nick Parker called his suggestion 'controversial,' but pointed to the fact that the 30-member alliance - that includes the US, the UK and several European nations - had been unable to prevent the Russian president's invasion of Ukraine. The former commander of land forces in the British Army said NATO is now in a defensive position, holding the alliance's eastern flank that last expanded in 2004. He told BBC Radio 4's Today Programme that a smaller military alliance would be better suited to 'develop an offensive counter-strategy to Putin.'

    The top American commander in Europe on Tuesday said he believed the U.S. will have to add to the 102,000 troops in the region to bolster defenses against Vladimir Putin. And Gen. Tod Wolters told a Senate committee hearing that Russia had used multiple hypersonic weapons in Ukraine but that they had failed in their effort to spread fear among Ukrainians. The head of Europe Command also admitted that there could have been an intelligence gap that allowed Washington to overestimate Russia's military capabilities and underestimate the power of Ukrainian resistance. He appeared before the Senate Armed Services Committee on day 34 of the Russian invasion as Moscow announced it was scaling back its attempts to take the capital Kyiv and the northern city of Chernihiv. Wolters said the Russian invasion had already prompted the U.S. to increase troop numbers from 60,000 to 102,000. More could follow, he said in answer to a question about numbers of troops permanently stationed in Europe. 'I think what we need to do from a US force perspective is look at what takes place in...

    Russia has admitted to losing its first GRU military intelligence spy in the war in the latest high-profile casualty of the savage Ukraine invasion. Captain Alexey Glushchak, 31, from Tyumen in Siberia, died in the carnage in Ukrainian port Mariupol, but the Russians have given no details of how he was killed. 'Due to the strict secrecy of the military operation, the circumstances of the death of the Tyumen hero are not disclosed,' said a statement.  Pictures emerged of father-of-one Glushchak's funeral in Russia, where he was buried with full military honours from a guard of honour, despite Russia hiding 'thousands' of deaths from those back at home.  Putin's stalling invasion has so far seen the loss of 12 commanders including three generals.

    THE US Air Force are seeing the "highest activity" of Russian aircraft over Alaska since the Cold War, a top US commander has said. The increased military activity in the area is attributed to Russia's expanding activities, according to Air Force generals.  3Conducting intercepts has put a strain on the forceCredit: Getty 3Air Force Lt. Gen. David Krumm is the latest US military official to warn of flights, which have "increased significantly"Credit: af.mil Top US commander, Air Force Lt. Gen. David Krumm, said on Wednesday that the activity was taxing for the units that intercept, but that they were handling it well. The Lt. Gen. is the latest US military official to warn about those flights, which have "increased significantly." He explained at an Air Force Association event: "As a matter of fact, the highest activity we've had since the fall of the Soviet Union occurred last year. "So we've intercepted more airplanes in and around the Alaska Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) than in a really, really long time." The ADIZ is not US airspace, but US aircraft often intercept Russia...
