At an incredibly astonishing rate, the Russian forces have yet again lost another high-ranking Russian officer. Lieutenant Colonel Denis Mezhuev has reportedly been killed in battle by the Ukrainians. He becomes the 33rd colonel to be killed in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has nothing been short of a bloodbath for the Kremlin.

Mezhuev, the commander of the 1st Guards Motor Rifle Regiment (also known as the 1st Guards Motor Rifle Sevastopol Red Banner Regiment), was killed, according to reports by both Ukrainian and Russian sources. However, details of his death were not given as of writing. According to intel, he moved to Ukraine’s eastern regions from Kyiv due to the Russian forces’ plan to ramp up attacks on the Donbas region.
