The Killing Of A Russian General In Ukraine: Andrei Sukhovetsky

Major General Andrei Sukhovetsky

Only a few general officers, from any military, have been killed in combat since the Vietnam war. The latest is Major General Andrei Sukhovetsky, deputy commander of the Russian 41st Combined Arms Army.

General Andrei Sukhovetsky’s death has been confirmed by both Ukrainian and Russian news sources.

The details of how the General was killed are not known at this time, though it is suspected that he was taken out by a Ukrainian sniper. What we do know is that his death is likely dealt a heavy blow to the Russian military forces.

The Russian military is reportedly already suffering low moral, both from the tenacious resistance of Ukraine and the lack of desire to attack in the first place.

“I think that’s indicative of how it was planned,… There was the expectation that they would be largely unopposed and the Ukrainians would just crumble. They didn’t have the supplies to sustain those units as they moved forwards, and their logistics convoys have been heavily targeted.”

While it’s unlikely that General Sukhovetsky’s death will slow the Russian invasion, it will certainly affect moral.

It’s probably a bigger morale loss than anything else, an indication of how tough things are going.”

This is a win for Ukraine, however small. Only time will tell if they can continue to tough it out and withstand the continued Russian invasion.
