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.
Since June, Russian high command has highly likely removed several Generals from key oper. command roles in Ukraine
