A RUSSIAN commander is said to have committed himself after learning that 90% of his unit’s iconic Z tanks are inoperable.

Ukraine reported that the commander of the “13th tank regiment” shot himself after realising that the bulk of the vehicles in his unit were rendered inoperable owing to stolen components.

According to Kyiv, the majority of the cars had been nearly totally destroyed, and several did not even have engines.

According to Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, Russian soldiers are straining and are confronting the “issue of the inability of recovering equipment after ‘deconservation’ from storage.”

According to a Telegram message, electrical equipment holding precious metals was also stripped.

“Currently, the enemy RVB is attempting to ‘bring into service’ a substantial amount of equipment arriving from long-term storage facilities,” according to the bulletin.

“The majority of this equipment is in extremely poor condition, making full usage difficult.”

“At the moment, preparations to move equipment from storage to the front have been foiled.”

If verified, the commander’s death would be the latest in a string of high-ranking Russian officials slain in Ukraine.

Western diplomats stated last week that a colonel was ran over by his own men with a tank following massive casualties on the battlefield.

Earlier, Yuri Medvedev of the 37th Motor Rifle Brigade was seen being stretchered to a hospital in Belarus after being ran over in Makariv, near Kyiv.

Despite reports that he was supposed to recover, the West thinks he died as a result of his injuries.

As the death toll from the invasion continues to mount, two more of Putin’s senior commanders were killed earlier this week.

Major Dmitry Toptun was reportedly killed after an anti-tank missile struck his armoured vehicle at Izyum, near Kharkiv.

Kherson was the first major city to be taken by Russian soldiers, although Ukrainian defenders responded heroically.

The Russian commander promised his forces a fast triumph, but that day has yet to come more than a month after the invasion.

Ukraine is now littered with the burned carcasses of wrecked Russian tanks and armoured vehicles, as well as the dead bodies of soldiers, many of whom were adolescent conscripts.

According to defence officials, Russia’s loss is an important win since it offers a path to the beleaguered city of Sumy.

 

Previously, a Russian cab driver was said to have surrendered with a tank in exchange for £7,500 and Ukrainian citizenship.

Trostianets, one of the first towns to fall, has been recovered by Ukrainian forces, dealing another blow to Putin’s war.
