Two senior Russian colonels are said to have secretly insulted Vladimir Putin over invading Ukraine and withdrawing from Kyiv, sources say.

Russia failed to make expected quick gains after the invasion of its neighbor that began on February 24 – and it has turned into a war of attrition.

Ukrainian fighters have been fighting for every inch, prompting a shift in strategy from the Russians retreating from the north and an attack on the capital Kyiv to instead focus on the more pro-Russian eastern regions near the border.

Now they are attacking the city of Sievierodonetsk to take complete control of the Luhansk province.

And two senior Russian military officials, Colonel Maksin Vlasov and Colonel Vitaly Kovtun, have blasted the failure to take Kyiv in an alleged wiretapped call by Ukrainian intelligence agencies.

“A damn rocket should fly in Kyiv (into the parliament of Ukraine). That’s fucking it. Why didn’t (a rocket) fly? I don’t fucking get it, you’re damned Putin motherf*****,” said Kovtun, the reported Daily Beast.

“Why didn’t a rocket fly to Kyiv… Something wasn’t done right.”

The alleged call was broadcast by Radio Free Europe’s Ukrainian service and is believed to have taken place on April 14.

The two military men also attacked Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, whom Vlasov called “incompetent” and who said their army had suffered “horrific losses.”

Russian forces have lost thousands of soldiers and many top personnel in the fighting, with claims of poor strategy and a lack of organization.

While Ukrainian fighters have shown determination and a willingness to die for the cause, Russian soldiers appear to have low morale.

In the recorded message, Vlasov and Kovtun agreed that the war was being waged by “boot lickers” and criticized the soldiers’ poor salaries.

They are reportedly paid 30,000 rubles (£381) a month.

“(There are) no contracted forces. Of course not! Why should it be there? They paid them 30,000 rubles (£381), where do they get contractors from?” Kovtun reportedly said.

Meanwhile, the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War has said Putin is “now hurling men and ammunition” at Sievierodonetsk “as if his capture would win the war for the Kremlin. He’s wrong.”

Thousands of residents remain trapped in the city and Russian forces are slowly advancing towards the center, regional governor Gaidai said.

Russia’s advance could force Ukrainian troops to retreat across the river to Lysychansk, he added.

Jan Egeland, secretary-general of the Norwegian Refugee Council relief agency, which has long operated from Sievierodonetsk, said he was “appalled” by the destruction.

Up to 12,000 civilians remain caught in the crossfire, without adequate access to water, food, medicine or electricity, Egeland said.

“The near-constant bombardment is forcing civilians to take refuge in bomb shelters and basements, with few valuable avenues for those trying to escape,” he said.

There have been few reports of major shifts elsewhere on the battlefield. In the south, Ukraine claimed to have pushed Russian forces back to the border of the Russian-held province of Kherson.

Moscow took control of Kherson in March, and local residents protested the Russian occupation.

Cellular and internet access in Kherson was shut down on Tuesday, Ukrainian officials said, accusing Russia of disconnecting cables.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said troops would fight there “although the Russian army has a significant advantage in terms of equipment and numbers.”
