Putin’s failures exposed by the men forced to fight his war

paratrooper, 34-year-old Pavel Filatyev – a professional soldier from a military family – published a 141-page account of his two months in Russia’s 56th Guards Air Assault Regiment at the outset of the invasion of Ukraine.

His commander is seldom seen. The regiment’s trucks have no working brakes. The overcrowding of the field hospital is solved with an order that no more casualties will be accepted.

Filatyev describes his regiment as being in a state of anarchy. Eventually, men start shooting themselves to be allowed to leave the front.
