Russia has reportedly lost another one of its top commanders as the death toll in the brutal war continues to rise.
According to local media reports, the latest target was the country’s 35th top Russian colonel who died in an attack put up by brave Ukrainian forces who tried to defend their land against invading troops.
The military commander has been identified as Colonel Ivan Grishin who is a part of the country’s 49th anti-aircraft missile brigade. He reportedly passed away from terrifying abdominal wounds during the attack that took place close to the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv recently.
On Monday, Ukraine reportedly announced how the number of casualties suffered by Russian troops has reached 20,600- which is a figure that Putin may never have anticipated during the start of the conflict.
The shocking news comes at a time when leading reports coming out from Ukraine spoke about how another Major named Vladimir Frolov had died and was given a military funeral to honor his service to the country.
He was the country’s deputy commander and headed the 8th Guards Combined Arms Unit but it is still not known how he really passed away sources believe that the timings of his funeral are a clear indication that he died after being killed in the last few days.
Referring to Commander Grishin, one Russian MP is believed to have said, “Sleep well, dear friend, your death shall certainly not be in vain”- confirmed to recent media reports from Russia.
In addition to that, it was said to him that the remaining Russian soldiers will continue to do the work for him, fulfilling all of his tasks relating to the ongoing military operation in Ukraine.
