The performance of Russian troops in Ukraine has been an overall embarrassment as they failed in many efforts to take over the country. But a recent incident involving Russian soldiers took the embarrassment to a whole new level.
The latest debacle took place just as new data came to light showing that 270,000 Russian troops have been “liquidated.”
The three men who perished were in a house in the city of Rossosh in Russia’s southwestern Voronezh region when the explosion took place, according to Telegram channel of independent Russian-language news outlet Astra and VChK-OGPU.
Newsweek reported that the house was being rented by five men.
The men were reportedly relaxing and having a barbecue that day before a “drunken conversation” erupted later that night.
According to VChK-OGPU, the soldiers “belonged to the Central Military District and were in service.”
“At some point, three troops came out of the house (two remained inside and were not injured) and an explosion occurred in the yard. It was established that an F-1 grenade exploded,” the Telegram channel cited an anonymous source as saying. “Independent Russian-language news outlet Astra reported the three men who met their grizzly end were ‘professional sappers.’”
According to the Express, a sapper handles military engineering duties like minefield placement or clearing, bridge-building, demolitions, and field defenses.
Speaking to CBS 60 Minutes, Zelensky also blamed the Russian people for voting to keep Putin in power despite the atrocities that he’s ordered.
“Russian society has lost respect for the world,” he said. “It elected and re-elected him and raised a second Hitler – it did it. We cannot go back to the past. But we can stop it here.”
“[We need] to de-occupy the territory as long as possible and move forward.”
Russian officials claim that Putin will receive 90 percent of the vote in 2024 as he’s reelected.
It’s unclear what the status of the invasion of Ukraine will look like by then, as it was originally predicted by many that when Russia first went into the country in February 2022 that it would be a quick takeover of at least part of the country.
