More than 20 Russian generals are believed to have died in the war Russia waged against Ukraine. This has a negative effect on the occupying army.
This is reported by Nikkei.
The publication refers to Japanese intelligence data obtained in cooperation with the United States and European countries. According to preliminary information, more than two dozen generals of the Russian army died in the war.
Kiefumi Iwat, a retired Japanese general and former chief of staff of the Ground Forces, believes the number is "unbelievably large". According to him, the death of generals weakens the morale of soldiers.
Japanese intelligence suggests that Ukrainian forces may have used cell phone signals to detect the Russian command.
According to another version, Ukrainian partisans in the occupied territories help the Armed Forces identify Russian commanders.
It is worth noting that in August of last year, British intelligence reported on 10 Russian generals who died in Ukraine.
We will remind you that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia has already lost more than 135,000 soldiers in the war against Ukraine.
