In its morning report, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine says that Russian Maj-Gen Oleg Tsokov sustained wounds in Ukraine and was evacuated:

“The enemy continues to suffer losses, in particular among the leadership. According to available information, the commander of the 144th Motorized Rifle Division of [Russia’s] 20th Combined Arms Army, Major General Tsokov, was wounded as a result of a fire attack in the area of ​​the settlement of Svatove. He was evacuated on 20 September of this year,” the General Staff’s report reads.

Maj-Gen Tsokov became the commander of Russia’s 144th Motorized Rifle Division only a month ago, in August 2022 shortly after the reports on the dismissal of six Russian generals in June.

Liberation of Russian-occupied Svatove, Luhansk Oblast, may become the next goal of the Ukrainian offensive after retaking Kharkiv’s Kupiansk.

Since the beginning of Russia’s ongoing full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian forces eliminated at least 10 Russian generals.
