Putin ‘suspends’ top commander after generals ‘sacked or arrested’ in purge
The Metro says Vladimir Putin has suspended his top commander as he looks for people to blame for Russia’s failure in Ukraine, it is believed.
One of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s inner circle veterans on military intelligence, Oleksiy Arestovych, claimed General Valery Gerasimov is one of several officers to be sacked.
This came out on Wednesday night, when Mr Arestovych spoke with the anti-Kremlin Russian lawyer Mark Feygin.
Mr Arestovych said: ‘According to preliminary information, Gerasimov has been de-facto suspended.
‘They are deciding whether to give him time to fix things, or not.’
