The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not comment on publications about the "vacation" or "resignation" of General Alexander Lapin


On October 29, a number of Russian media, military correspondents and near-military publics informed the public that the Commander of the Central Military District, Colonel General, Hero of Russia Alexander Lapin, who at the same time was in charge of the Center group in the North Military District in Ukraine, was removed from his post.


At the same time, there were no clarifications from the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on this matter; There is no official confirmation or refutation yet.

It should be noted that the military commander was repeatedly strongly criticized by the founder of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, and the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. Moreover, one of the first to disseminate information about the removal of Lapin channel ChGTRK "Grozny".

In turn, several sources in the Russian Defense Ministry reported conflicting information to a number of other media resources. The first said that Lapin had taken three weeks' leave to recuperate and return to the front. The second said that the general himself filed a report and would not return to command of the Center group. The third one said that the report had indeed been written, but that it was a vacation report, since the commander had been on the front lines since the first days of the NMD and needed to rest.

Military commissars Yuri Kotenok, Andrei Rudenko and Olga Kurlaeva wrote in their Telegram channels that, according to their information, Lapin would not return to command of the Center group.

Andrey Mordvichev was temporarily replaced by General Lapin

- said Kurlaeva.

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not comment on the information of the Grozny Canal and military correspondents.

    Hiding? All the failures on him, but the Hero, but what if the general, then the Hero. Somehow they do it automatically. Where are the results?

      Come on ... He was not the only one who worked in the field of turning the NWO into a farce show. And Lapin was sacrificed like a pawn. If the pawn is a general, then just imagine what other pieces ...
      The most hardened, responsible for criminal decisions, are still at the helm.
      That's why, we are waiting for many more 'surprises' in this company.

      I looked at the face in the photo.
      General Lapin and General Vlasov, practically the same person. And both are heroes.

        Why are you spreading fakes? On the collage,photo of Vlasov with orders- photoshop.

        What is there on his chest - the Order of Bohdan Khmelnitsky, approved on October 10, 1943, and shoulder straps?

          Didn't do photomontage. Photo taken from the Internet in the public domain.
          About which Lapin is a general, ask Kadyrov.
          If I, who unknowingly posted a fake photo of General Vlasov, is an enemy, and General Lapin, who surrendered Kupyansk, Balakleya, Krasny Liman, is your hero, then who are you?
          The meaning of my post was in the essence of actions and behavior.
          If you think that vacation is at the most difficult moment for the front, is that normal? What to talk about.
          My fault is that I'm not an expert on fake photos. I admit.

        This is not an argument. I won’t say anything about Lapin, I won’t say anything, but you can fight bravely in a trench and be mediocre when commanding a company or battalion. The Second World War showed this, and more than once.

        If he fought off attacks in a trench, then he does not pull on the commander, he is no more than a company commander. Who prevented him from establishing defenses in half a year. He will order to dig trenches. And to repel attacks, courage is needed, but not the mind of the commander.

    From the outside it is impossible to determine the veracity of the information. But, you need to look more broadly at the NVO, in which from the very beginning there was a sea of ​​​​contradictions, the excess of political goals over military necessity, the absence of a single center in the person of a GKO-type body. Therefore, you should not blame everything on one person, realizing that there was a big mess in the entire NWO system, starting with the name. Now, things are slowly changing. We look forward to breakthroughs.

    What vacation during the war?!
    I personally heard from the lieutenant colonel of the National Guard that vacations and even dismissals due to the end of the contract were suspended.
    And here, you see, the general is tired, he has a vacation. Who is this information for? Or is People stealing everything?

      (Uncle.) Replica. During the fighting, regular rotation and vacation for the front-line units are necessary, otherwise the combat effectiveness is lost at times. As for the colonel general, he stood out for his work at the level of the battalion commander, almost without the necessary coordination in all directions in the troops. In fact, there was no commander, there was a senior officer, without actions and results due to the colonel general. Now other mistakes of the higher authorities of the Moscow Region will be hanged on him ...

    "I wrote the report myself" I know how it "myself" is done.
    They can delicately hint to him: very tired, health and a whole bunch of reasons, or they can silently put foxes of paper and that's it.
    It all depends on a number of factors. Among others, and position: Kadyrov and Prigogine. They now have authority in society
    Perhaps Lapin was assessed differently in the Moscow Region, but public opinion cannot be ignored now

    It should be noted that the military commander was repeatedly strongly criticized by the founder of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, and the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov.

    There is no desire to protect the general, but it is quite obvious that the blame for the failures lies not only with him. And strong criticism in the press, and especially on the Internet, is largely an organized informational event against the leadership of the Moscow Region as a whole, accompanied by the artificial creation of an increased authority of the two above-mentioned persons ...

      Artificially created authorities of two persons? Well, yes, one climbs through the camps calling for war, the other loses close relatives, both are on the front lines like at home, they know the soldiers almost by sight and value their lives. That is why they "speak out" impartially, not for the media. Of course far-fetched authority, but what else.

    Although the current war in Ukraine is not similar to the Second World War, there are nevertheless parallels. During the Second World War, ours also retreated, but for such our recent retreat near Kharkov, I believe, I.V. Stalin would not only be removed from his post, but also ... then you yourself know what would happen to such a general ... It would be good if they were deprived of awards, demoted and sent to command, for example, a battalion ...

    Everything, as in Austria-Hungary, when someone pierced, they transfer him to another place with an increase. Stalin was also transferred to another place with hanging. But looking at his previous achievements, they gave 8 years of execution. There was a man named Gutt, a retired colonel. So he told us the boys, who already understood something about what war is, that all the decisions made by the commander-in-chief regarding military personnel holding high posts dispersed to the headquarters of the fronts and armies and from there to the headquarters of the units with obligatory reading in front of the military personnel. So they knew about everything and everyone. It raised the discipline. And here is a military secret, maybe they will send to command the moon.
