Russia: Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Dosyagayev on state television

Two other Russian colonels have been killed in the Russian war in Ukraine – including the country’s “top paratrooper commander”.

Lt. Col. Alexander Dosyagayev, 34, was commander of an airborne battalion of the 104th Parachute Regiment.

Troops from his 104th Air Assault Regiment were reportedly based in Bucha, which was the scene of alleged rape and torture atrocities by Vladimir Putin’s forces earlier in the war.

His Pskov-based battalion had been recognized as the best in Russia in controlling combat training and military discipline.

At the military festival “Army of Russia 2021” he was named the winner of the “Winged Infantry” category.

“I was proud that my soldiers and officers showed the desired result,” he said.

“That did not help him in a meeting with Ukrainian warriors,” the Kyiv Armed Forces said in a statement.

Russian media outlet Mediazona confirmed the death of another colonel killed earlier in the war, which was not disclosed.

Colonel Vladimir Ivanov, 41, has been labeled a “propagandist” by the Ukrainian media because he worked in the Information and Mass Communications Department of the Russian Defense Ministry.

It is now clear that he died in March.

A friend, Yevgeny Poddubniy, carried his portrait at a May 9 march of the “Immortal Regiment” to commemorate Russians killed in numerous conflicts.

At the time, it was not known that he had died in Ukraine.

Dosyagayev and Ivanov are the 47th and 48th colonels known to have died fighting for Russian forces in Ukraine.

The number of generals is now estimated at ten.

It is likely the true number is higher as Russian officials have not released details of those killed in Ukraine.

The news comes amid speculation about Vladimir Putin’s health, with MI6 sources claiming the Russian leader may already be dead.

A body double may have been used for recent appearances as Kremlin cronies would like to cover up his death to retain power.

There have been rumors that the warmonger’s health has deteriorated in recent months, with his face appearing bloated and observers are asking if the 69-year-old may have blood cancer.

Senior MI6 chiefs say the Russian president has been seriously ill recently but his death is likely being covered up.

Russia’s ambassador to the UK claimed today (29 May) that Vladimir Putin will only use tactical nuclear weapons if the “existence of the [Russian] condition is endangered”.

Andrei Kelin used a rare BBC interview to claim “I don’t think” that tactical nuclear weapons will be used in the conflict with Ukraine.”

Asked directly whether Putin would be prepared to launch a nuclear attack on Britain, the ambassador replied: “No, I don’t think so.”
