Latest news Ukraine

Ukrainian soldiers from the Khort Special Forces have eliminated the Deputy Chief of Staff of the “Wagner” PMC, the unit posted on Facebook.

This happened in early September, during Ukraine’s first offensive in the Kherson direction, commander Pavlo Pataretskyi shared.

The whole Wagner unit was destroyed in close combat.”We knew that there were serious people there, because of the good weapons. In addition, they were all officers, all under the cover of the military police,” he told.

Specialists from the unit had spent a month hacking the mobile phones of the Wagner fighters. The uncovered photos and correspondence proved that the members of the group were of high ranking, although already then, Mr. Pataretskyi was told about this from intercepted conversations.

Khort shared a photo of the unnamed Chief of Staff’s trophy AK-12 rifle, adopted by the Russian army in 2018.
