Alexander Khodakovsky (50) was the commander of the much-talked-about Vostok battalion, and in March 2023 President Vladimir Putin appointed him deputy commander of the President’s National Guard in the Donetsk region.

And the Ukrainian military spokeswoman, Natalya Gomenjuk, already on Thursday spoke of “the panic of the Russians is obvious.”

Now Khodakovsky expresses his frustration about their Telegram account:

– The level of tension that arose yesterday and was expressed in the quality and quantity of conversations and messages indicates that we are not mentally prepared, he writes.

– This is how we prepare, prepare for the counterattack – and we did not prepare, he continues.

WAGNER-LEDER: Yevgenij Prigozhin is the head of Wagner’s private military company. He claims that the Russian Ministry of Defense is not telling the truth when it talks about an orderly withdrawal in Bakhmut. He calls it pure escapism.

At the same time, he admitted in an interview published on Twitter That “Eight years of war is always a lot. So the boys keep fighting thanks to their will.”

Aleksandr Khodakovsky belonged to the Ukrainian elite unit until 2014, but switched to the Russian side in May 2014 when the war really started. At the time, he was also deputy prime minister in the so-called Donetsk People’s Republic, which Russia annexed in September 2022.
