Furious Vladimir Putin is said to have sacked eight top generals in anger over the slow pace of the Ukraine invasion.

Oleksiy Danilov, head of Ukraine’s security council, said eight Russian commanders have been fired since the start of the conflict amid heavy losses on the battlefield.

Putin is also said to be enraged with leaders of the FSB security service for handing him intelligence suggesting that Ukraine was weak, riddled with neo-Nazi groups, and would give up easily if attacked.

Philip Ingram, a former senior British intelligence officer, told The Times that Putin is obviously ‘very angry’ and is blaming his intelligence agencies.

‘He blames them for seeding him the advice that led to the poor decision-making in Ukraine,’ he said.

hat poor decision making has led to Russia suffering much higher casualties than it expected in its attack, which has now been going on for two weeks.

Moscow anticipated little resistance when it sent in light forces backed by airstrikes to seize key targets during the opening days.

Danilov said Putin thought capital city Kyiv would fall within two to three days.

‘It hasn’t happened and never will,’ he said.

The security head said ‘desperate’ Moscow has ‘now switched to a different tactic’ by changing leadership.

‘They had about 8 generals removed from their posts because they did not complete the task,’ he told state TV.

‘Now new ones have been appointed. We clearly understand what is happening in the Russian Federation. I can say that they are desperate.’

Ukraine believes Russia has lost up to 12,000 men in a fortnight. European intelligence puts it lower – between 6,000 and 9,000 – and US lower still, at up to 3,000.

Whichever proves accurate, it is almost certainly more than Putin anticipated when he invaded his southern neighbour.
