Pro-Russian Telegram users have been circulating a letter, reportedly written by members of the 155th Guards Naval Infantry Brigade, to the Governor of Primorsky Krai, Russia. The letter is an impassioned plea to the Governor, where the unit is based, to investigate Russian military leaders who have sacrificed more than 300 soldiers and half of their equipment in the past four days near Vuhledar, Donetsk Oblast. The 155th is one of only two Naval Infantry Brigades of the Pacific Fleet and was transferred East to fight in Ukraine.
Oleg Nikolayevich Kozhemyako, born 17 March 1962, is the Governor of Primorsky Krai, appointed in 2018.
The text of the letter is below:
“Dear Oleg Nikolaevich. The Marines of the 155th Marine Brigade are addressing you. Once again, we were thrown into an incomprehensible offensive by General Muradov and his fellow countryman Akhmedov, in order for Muradov to earn bonuses over Gerasimov and Akhmedov Muradov promised a hero of Russia. As a result, we and the marines of Kamchatka are advancing on Pavlovka. As a result of the “carefully” planned offensive by the “great generals”, we lost about 300 people in 4 days, killed, wounded and missing. 50 percent technology. This is just our team. The command of the district, together with Akhmedov, hide this and take the official figures of losses for fear of responsibility. How they were going to capture the settlement by slipping through the landings in which the enemy remained, now destroying ours on the evacuation routes of the wounded and the supply of ammunition. In addition, Pavlovka is lower than Ugledar, from which they beat us. Oleg Nikolaevich, Primorye people! How long will such mediocrities like Muradov and Akhmedov plan military operations for the sake of their reports and receive awards at the cost of the lives of so many people. They don’t care about anything just to show themselves. They call people meat. We ask you to turn to the Supreme Commander so that they send a commission not from the Ministry of Defense where Muradoaa is protected by Gerasimov, but an independent one. Let them be asked the purpose of such actions, their provision, and the results without embellishment. How much can you endure!”
ps: when you can now understand that such messages are not the machinations of hahlov, but the truth, in turn I will add that for the most part it is so everywhere, there are good commanders, but they are a minority, because they were gobbled up by the system for the sake of such people pidaras, as for Muradov (like Lapin), they praised, defended, etc., when he behaved like a cuckold in Karabakh, when the Azerbaijani side fired at the Armenians and our peacekeeping contingent as much as they wanted.”
This letter, which has not yet been confirmed as authentic, seems to reflect the desperate fighting conditions for both Russian and Ukrainian soldiers in and around Bakhmut.
