Vladimir Putin was struck today by the death of Russia’s 11th general in his bloody war with Ukraine.

Major General Roman Kutuzov was the chief of staff of the 29th Combined Arms Army, according to reports.

His vehicle was ambushed by Ukrainians and he died during a battle in Donbas, sources say.

His death is the 11th general, but the first such a senior army officer in over a month.

In addition, at least 49 colonels were killed in the war with Ukraine.

He was a close associate of Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.

In 2020, Kutuzov headed the headquarters of the Combined Arms Formation of Russia’s vast Eastern Military District.

The previous general killed was Kanamat ‘Flop Gun’ Botashev, 63.

He was a “retired pilot” who was hit in his Su-25 after coming out of retirement to fly in Putin’s armed forces.

He was allegedly shot down by a Ukrainian Stinger missile.

There are unconfirmed claims that Western countries are assisting Ukraine in attacking senior Russian officers.

Russian sources say Kutuzov was killed in the area of ​​the Nikolaevka settlement, in the Popasnyansky district of the Luhansk People’s Republic, close to the front line.

Last month it was claimed that Putin “would run out of missiles” as his generals turn against each other to avoid being purged, it has been reported.

Just 10 weeks after the invasion, Putin’s forces were firing more missiles than they expected because of the way the war dragged on.

British Admiral Sir Tony Radakin told TalkTV: “He may have a problem as the pace of spending and the toughness of the battle are completely different from the 24th February.

“I think there are several wars going on. There is a tactical, geographical war going on in Ukraine.

“There’s a logistical war going on, in terms of how you keep that pace of spending.

“We are talking about serious consequences for their armed forces.

“We have effectively eliminated 25% of their troops – either by killing people or by damaging their tactical battalion groups.”

He added that Putin is under “incredible pressure” to secure a victory for Russia.

The admiral’s comments come as Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said Putin’s generals are “turning on themselves” to avoid becoming the scapegoat amid the botched operation.
