The Guardian: Putin is making operational and tactical decisions about the war

Western military sources said that Vladimir Putin has become personally involved in the Ukraine war that he is making operational and tactical decisions, which are supposed to be taken by a colonel or brigadier-general in the army after he has failed in a achieving his goals that he aspired at the beginning of the war.

The sources added to the British Guardian newspaper, Putin  is helping determine the movement of his forces in the Donbas, which Russia has failed to achieve territorial gains in it.

Despite this, Putin hadn’t sidelined the commander of the Russian armed forces, Gen Valery Gerasimov, as Ukraine alleged las week. Putin is still working closely with Gen Valery Gerasimov. One of the sources said: “We think Putin and Gerasimov are involved in tactical decision making at a level we would normally expect to be taken by a colonel or a brigadier.”

The sources confirmed that they obtained this information about Putin’s close personal participation in making tactical and military decisions about the war from intelligence sources.
