Ukraine war: Putin minion involved in missile attack - "I'm hurt"

Rogozin, whose political beginnings lie in the extreme right-wing party "Rodina" ("Homeland") and who was photographed by the media giving the Hitler salute during the nationalist "Russian March", later made a career under Putin - first as ambassador to NATO , then as Deputy Prime Minister and finally as Roskosmos boss.

After his replacement in July 2022, there was speculation that Putin would appoint him governor-general of the conquered Ukrainian territories.

Rogozin, meanwhile, has set up a group of volunteer military advisers called the Tsar Wolves.

He posed several times when handing over equipment to soldiers at the front.

Russia recently spoke of “only” around 6,000 soldiers killed in its own ranks.

Meanwhile, independent Russian media have already identified more than 10,000 Russian dead by name.

The reason: many of the Russian trainers died in the battles in the Ukraine war or there.

The British secret service sees the development as an indication of how strained Putin's armed forces are at the moment.
