There has been no such capture since World War II. General captured by the Ukrainians [WIDEO]

“The Defense Forces are leading a successful counterattack in the field of Kharkiv. Thanks to skilful and concerted actions, the Ukrainian Armed Forces, with the support of local residents, moved almost 50 km in three days “- noted in the operational summary of the General Staff. In addition, according to the US Institute for War Research, within three days Ukrainian forces are likely to recapture Kupiansk, occupied by Russian troops, in the Kharkiv region.

During the operations in the East, Ukrainian soldiers probably captured General Andrei Syczewoy. The former group commander of the Western Military District is the highest-ranking Russian officer captured since World War II.

According to reports, Syczewoj was supposed to change into a lieutenant’s uniform and thus tried to escape unrecognized.

Videos showing the moment of his capture appeared in the media. The behavior of the military, who looks away from the camera, and the fact that he is surrounded by as many as six Ukrainian soldiers are noteworthy.

So far, there has been no confirmation, either from Ukraine or Russia, that the captured officer is General Syczewoj.

Four Russian generals, including Andrei Sichevoy, the leader of the Western Military District grouping and the commanders of three armies, were dismissed from their leadership positions due to their defeats during the war in Ukraine – Ukrainian journalist Roman Cymbaluk announced earlier this week on Telegram.
