Killing Generals Could Get to Be a Habit

US officials have reportedly confirmed they are providing intelligence that has helped Ukrainian forces target and kill many of the Russian generals who have died in the Ukraine war.
...
According to the US officials, Washington has given Ukraine details on Russia’s expected troop movements and the location and other information about Russia’s mobile military headquarters, and Ukraine has combined that help with its own intelligence to conduct artillery strikes and other attacks that have killed Russian officers.

Ukrainian officials said they had killed about 12 Russian generals on the battlefield. The most recent fatality apparently occurred at the weekend with the reported death of Maj Gen Andrei Simonov, a Russian electronic warfare commander, who Ukraine said it killed near the city of Izyum in the Kharkiv region, which is occupied by Russian forces
.

The story in the New York Times goes on to explain that the Russian army is one that does not provide latitude to junior officers and senior sergeants, so when there is a problem, the generals have to go assess the problem and decide how to fix it.

There is a lot of OSINT out there as to the how and why Russian comms suck, which pushes them to using unsecure radios and cell phones and how the Ukrainians have been exploiting those weaknesses.
