During a visit to British troops stationed in Finland, Ben Wallace said Moscow’s military chiefs blame each other for the invasion’s poor progress and fear being cleaned up by Vladimir Putin if the “swamp” turns into a retreat, said the Times.

Wallace said the generals were made scapegoats for the shortcomings of the Russian military and were “always afraid of being purged and driven out.”

The Secretary of State added that the generals were getting closer and closer to the front lines to “clean up this swamp they’re in,” but said their approach of “yelling and yelling at people” is “probably not leading to the best result.” leads “.

Wallace’s comments came as officials in Washington told the New York Times that US intelligence has allowed Ukrainian forces to target and kill many of the Russian generals who have fallen in combat.

Ukraine claims to have killed about 12 generals at the front, a number that “has astounded military analysts,” according to the newspaper. US agencies have used a variety of sources “including classified and commercial satellites” to track troop movements.

The government has sought to keep much of the intelligence on the battlefield secret, fearing it could “provoke” a larger war, the newspaper added. But The Telegraph said US officials claim the level of intelligence sharing is “unprecedented in modern warfare”.

Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Senate panel this week that “a significant amount of intelligence is flowing into Ukraine from the United States,” adding that Washington has “opened the lines.”

Vladimir Putin’s top general in Ukraine, Valery Gerasimov, was nearly killed by laser-guided artillery fire this week when intelligence revealed he was on a covert visit to the Russian front, Ukraine’s defense ministry said.

Wallace said Gerasimov was “in Fall Guy Territory” and warned, “Be careful when you have sole command of anything in the Russian system because it may not last long.”
