“We are forced to appoint not fully trained officers because there are no better ones,” Sviridov said during another interview. “For the same reason we are sending to military academies third-rate pilots. This did not happen in the past.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Sviridov’s death this month marked the latest of Putin’s allies to pass away under sudden and mysterious circumstances.
More than 40 Russian oligarchs, scientists, and generals have passed away mysteriously in the nearly 21 months since Putin first invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
