The soldiers reportedly killed multiple Russian soldiers during an assault operation near Ugledar in Donbas and among the dead was Oleksiy Zinenko, the commander of Russia’s 155th Guards Naval Infantry Brigade

Ukrainian media reports recently suggested that the 155th Independent Naval Infantry Brigade of the Russian Army had been protesting against the lack of equipment provided by Russian military officials.

Reports even suggested that soldiers of the 155th Brigade complained in a “blood letter” about the incompetent command of their superiors, resulting in heavy losses.

People have commented on the unconfirmed news.

“Unconfirmed- Ukrainian forces have killed a commander of Russia’s 155th Guards Naval Infantry Brigade at Pavlivka, Donetsk Oblast.”
