According to him, the problems of the Russian army are so deep and systemic that they cannot be corrected even after months of work.


The loss of trust between the Russian general staff and Russian President Vladimir Putin could cause an explosion.

lieutenant general Ben Hodgesthe former commander of the American army on the European continent, said it on the television channel Espresso.

According to him, Putin appointed a new commander because he is very loyal to him.

“Surovikin is the new commander of the Russian occupation forces and has a reputation for being brutal and corrupt. Or will anyone be surprised that the Kremlin chooses a corrupt criminal and murderer for the position of new commander? It was predictable. Especially since he is also very loyal, which is now the most important quality for an appointment, because Putin fears that his generals will not support him as they have supported him in the past”, Hodges explained.

According to the expert, it does not matter who will become the new commander of the Russian Federation. The problems of the Russian military are so deep and systemic that the new leader will not be able to fix them in a few weeks or a few months.

“Corruption, lack of coordination between the air force, land forces and navy, a faulty logistics system. All this is such horror that no matter who becomes the commander, he will not be able to overcome it. What is the difference of the new commander? I think he will continue one type or another of heavy-handed tactics and the sooner they are defeated the better,” summarizes Hodges.
