NY POST: Russian soldiers in Ukraine have been failed by top brass: general
A Russian general claims he was fired after giving military leadership an honest picture of the dire situation in Ukraine –and alleges that soldiers on the ground have been failed by the top brass.
“It was necessary either to keep quiet and be a coward or to say it the way it is,” Maj. Gen. Ivan Popov says in a voice recording published by Russian politician Andrew Gurulyov.
Popov, 48, claims in the message that he was axed from his position as the head of the 58th Combined Arms Army in retaliation for raising questions about high casualty rates and a lack of artillery support, the BBC reported.
“I had no right to lie in the name of you, in the name of my fallen comrades in arms, so I outlined all the problems which exist,” he continued.
“The Ukrainian army could not break through our ranks at the front but our senior chief hit us from the rear, viciously beheading the army at the most difficult and intense moment.”
Popov added that the order for his dismissal was approved by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, whom he accused of treason.
“The senior chiefs apparently sensed some kind of danger from me and quickly concocted an order from the defense minister in just one day and got rid of me,” he said.
The Russian defense minister has not commented on the alleged dismissal. --->READ MORE HERE

On the southern flank of the Bakhmut front, like yesterday, there is an advance with fighting and strong enemy resistance.
On the northern flank, the enemy attacked, trying to regain lost positions. But to no avail.
SOUTH. The offensive continues on the Melitopol and Berdiansk fronts.
