In addition, data on the true impact of sanctions on the Russian economy can be hidden from the Russian dictator.

The US believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin is being “misinformed” about how poorly the Russian military is performing in Ukraine and about the impact of sanctions on the Russian economy.
CNN writes about this with reference to an American official.
“We believe the advisers are misinforming Putin about how badly the Russian military is performing and how sanctions are crippling the Russian economy because they are too afraid to tell him the truth,” the US official said.
The source of the channel noted that the assessment is based on the declassified findings of American intelligence.
According to him, the United States has information that indicates that Putin became aware of disinformation, which led to a split between him and the highest ranks of the Russian Ministry of Defense.
“We have information that Putin felt that he was misled by the Russian military. There is now a persistent tension between Putin and … (the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation), which stems from Putin’s distrust of the leadership of the Ministry of Defense,” the American official said.
The official noted that Putin really did not know that the Ministry of Defense “uses and loses conscripts in Ukraine, which demonstrates a clear failure in the flow of accurate information to the Russian president.”
Reminds of Hitler. Had he been properly informed he may have taken according decisions to minimize the damage and save his ass.
I think its great after years of Putin’s propaganda now he is making decisions of war based on more propaganda…
Hitler didn’t want to hear the bad stuff. He fired Reinhard Gehlen, head of Foreign Armies East when he continually told Hitler the truth. Rommel learned that Hitler didn’t want to know the truth either. He regarded both as defeatists.
Putin has put himself in the same corner.
And because of him and his actions there are all the victims on both sides, civilians aswell as soldiers, and all the children who had to die because of him. 🥺
Would he do anything different if he knew that his army is junk and getting whooped?
