Russian Maj. Gen. Vladimir Frolov of the 8th Army died in battle in Ukraine and was buried in Russia on Saturday, according to a statement from the governor of St. Petersburg.

The statement from Alexander Beglov offered no details of when or where Frolov was killed. As deputy commander of the 8th Army, Frolov commanded forces deployed to an area near Mariupol, the devastated port city that Russia appears on the verge of capturing.

Russian state media outlet Fontanka reported that Beglov claimed Frolov, whom he described as “a true patriot,” “fell the death of the brave.”

1. I think they must be targeted.

Or "Fragged" by their own soldiers.

There was only 1 US general killed in combat I think in the last 10 years, and before that, the last was in Vietnam.

It's actually rare, so I wonder if they're getting shot by snipers. (I have no moral issue with that. Better a general than an 18-year-old conscript.)

4. They're sending their top officers to the front lines because everything is so top down.

Units on the ground don't have any capacity at all to make decisions for themselves. At least that's my understanding.

2. Memories of Iraq..


"the number 2 Al-Quada leader will take his place"

which became a deadly fact as time went on and also became a funny funny expression.

Notable also is Putin's Generals are IN the battle lines. He must be very very pissed at them for all that money they stole from lying about the Ukrainian situation.

3. I just came over here to post this. LOL.

This has to be taking some kind of toll on their operational capabilities, doesn't it?
