Although the occupation forces of the Russian Federation have received a single commander in the person of General Sergei Surovikin, they still remain “split” due to poor junior and intermediate leadership and a “cover culture”. So, in recent months, two companies of invaders fled from the front after the murder of their commander.
The other officers probably lied in an attempt to cover up the incident. This is stated in the British military intelligence report , released on November 20.
It is also noted that the recent Russian retreat from the western part of Kherson Oblast went in relatively good order compared to previous large Russian retreats.
During the retreat, the losses of transport units were probably in the tens, not hundreds, while a significant part of the abandoned equipment was successfully destroyed by the occupiers so that it would not fall into the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
This relative success is likely due in part to a more effective unified operational command under Surovikin, British intelligence noted.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, Austrian military analyst Tom Cooper said earlier that Sergei Surovikin is spending a billion dollars on rocket attacks to leave Ukraine without electricity for several days. In addition, Ukrainian air defense is shooting down more and more Russian missiles.
