UK, Russian generals removed in Ukraine

From key operational command roles

25 June, 13:42
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, JUN 25 - In June, the Russian high command "has highly likely removed several Generals from key operational command roles in the war in Ukraine," the UK Ministry of Defence said in its latest intelligence update today. These includes the commander of Airborne Forces (VDV) General-Colonel Andrei Serdyukov; and commander Southern Group of Forces (SGF) General of the Army Alexandr Dvornikov. "Command of the SGF is likely to transfer to Colonel-General Sergei Surovikin, as SGF continues to perform a central part in Russia's offensive in the Donbas.

For over thirty years, Surovikin's career has been dogged with allegations of corruption and brutality," the update reads.
