New Commander Appointed In Western Military District Of Russia - Reports

Click to see full-size image

A new commander has been appointed in the Western Military District of the Russian Federation, according to the Russian media, citing Russia’s Unified State Register of Legal Entities. The reports are yet to be officially confirmed.

Lieutenant-General Roman Berdnikov has replaced Colonel-General Alexander Zhuravlev, who has been the head of the Western Military District since 2018.

Berdnikov was previously the commander of the integrated combined arms forces of the Eastern Military District. He later headed a group of Russian troops in Syria. In 2020, he was awarded the rank of Lieutenant General.

In 1991, he graduated from the Kiev Suvorov Military School.

“In Ukraine, where I studied at the Kiev Suvorov School, then the oppression on the basis of nationality had already begun. I remember, before we graduated, the nationalists from RUH [the Ukrainian nationalist movement, created in 1989] killed a student of the Suvorov School … It was necessary to decide not only whom to become in the future, but also in which country to live,” Roman Berdnikov recalled in one of his interviews.

The Russian military is yet to confirm the reports. On the website of the Ministry of Defense, Zhuravlev is still listed as the head of the Western Military District, and Berdnikov is the commander of the 29th Combined Arms Army.

The reasons of such a decision are also unclear. The change could be a result of mistakes by the previous military command on the battlefield or during the partial mobilization in Russia. These suggestions are actively spread by the Ukrainian media. The same media have previously clamed that Roman Berdnikov was killed in a Ukrainian attack on an armored column.

On the other hand, amid the ongoing retreat of the Russian military in several regions of Ukraine, such changes in the Russian military command may lead to positive results on the front lines.

Russia by its proclamations cannot have a division between different western territories and a new face is good to oversee the enlarged western space. It is hopefully a sign that the territories that have now joined Russia will receive the same level of protection as any other region of Russia. Russia needs show with military conviction its wholehearted protection for ALL of Russia!

I’ve lost count of all commanders and generals changed since February. I don’t think so many changes are good for an army during an active phase of war. Just think of the upheaval happening in one’s own working environment when the director or the senior or even junior manager is fired and a new one comes, but multiply it because this is a life or death “working environment”. On the contrary, Ukraine has the same man (Zaluzhny) all along.

Rubbish. Zelensky replaced even more commanders of different formations, and Russia also has the same man in overall command, Gerasimov. That actually is the problem. “working environment”? Learn military history, replacing generals during the war is nothing unusual, just the contrary. It’s like football: if the team underperforming you sack coach and try another one.

The new Russian reinforcement of at least 300k soldiers should invade from Belarus again, provided by air cover and Air Defence like S-300/400/500 Buk M2 and Pantsir.

First goal should be to take Kowel(northeast Ukraine) and build a fortified bridgehead, for supply. The enemy will be forced to ease attacks in the east.

After Counterattacks of AFU take Luzk bring the war to the other side of Ukraine.

Take Bakhmut, Zaporishja as soon as possible later take Kramatorsk and Slaviansk. After that Izyum and Liman will be retaken really quick.

Zaluzhny doesnt command anything dumbass, nato runs the show.

They need a 1:1 ratio with Ukraine, that is to say 1 million men. Where are the Chinese? They are next.

From head to toes corrupted Russian incompetent military leadership has been revealed hundreds of times during this year. Only naive pro Russia idiots can’t understand that pale sad facts but keep on living in their childish fantasies of “mighty Russian military”. 🤔😂

Collapse of the Russian defense forces in Kherson.

Officially from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the situation in the Kherson region:

“With superior tank units in the direction of Zolotaya Balka, Alexandrovka, the enemy managed to wedge into the depth of our defense.”

Military engagements in the real world are not like a Call of Duty Modern Warfare campaign.

collapse? where? are you dreaming? the ukrops are just able to open some holes in the very sparse defense of the Russian forces, then they get repelled and killed

in Bakhmut they have lost hundreds of ukromeat to no avail…Wagners are advancing

just because they have had some successes in the north, doesn’t mean they are good…they are just using thousands of ukrotards for saturation attacks, while the murican mercs do the specialized fight

as soon as Putin and friends finally understand this is a war and not a game, the Russians will bomb all the railway lines coming into the east, blocking to influx of mercs and weapons

then they will destroy the energy network of ukropstan and leave clownensky without electricity

the war hasn’t started yet, otherwise cities from Kiev to Lvov wouldn’t be standing

Russia has fought many wars over the years. No doubt their military experience is very deep.

Bulldog banging everybody down with his forehead. Russia could not have chosen a better representative for its gobbling gold and land masses globally.
