Zaluzhny suffered a head injury and shrapnel wounds during the shelling of Kherson - source

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) Valeriy Zaluzhny suffered a head injury and shrapnel wounds during a missile strike that Russian troops inflicted on the command post of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kherson, reports RIA News with reference to an insider who has his own sources in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to him, Zaluzhny was wounded in early May near the village of Posad-Pokrovskoye.

The interlocutor of the agency also said that Zaluzhny was taken to Nikolaev to provide first aid, and from there by helicopter to a military hospital in Kyiv.

In Nikolaev, Zaluzhny received first aid to stop the bleeding. In the Kiev military hospital, he underwent a craniotomy

— said the source.

Zaluzhny will not be able to continue his service, the source of the agency assures.

On May 21, the hacker group "Joker DNR" made a report on the serious injury of Zaluzhny. She referred to agents in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It was noted that he was wounded during a missile attack on the headquarters, the place was not indicated. The hackers also said that Zaluzhny underwent several operations that would not allow him to continue in his post.

A day earlier, Deputy Defense Minister of Ukraine Anna Malyar said that the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny continues to perform his duties. She refuted media assumptions that Zaluzhny's absence in public in recent days was caused by an injury, and added that the information wave about Zaluzhny's disappearance was launched by the Russian side.

On May 10, it became known that Zaluzhny refused to take part in a meeting of the NATO Military Committee at the level of chiefs of staff. Then there were rumors that he was wounded or even killed.

Earlier it was reported that the Ramstein-12 meeting is extremely important for Kyiv. Its dates are May 22-28. If Zaluzhny misses the event, it will definitely be indicate to the big problems with his health, the journalist of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Andrey Rudenko drew attention to this.

    It was not possible to die quickly as a great hero (who will be sung in history). It will be a visual aid .... an amorphous disabled vegetable who ingloriously died in a Bose.

    in this story can be called an extremely low probability of coincidence, at the wrong time in the wrong place. That an object on a huge front and a day, an hour, a minute would coincide - this is very unlikely.

    It is also unlikely that a certain agent in Kherson leaked, when he saw Zaluzhny, he notified his curator. The time it takes to transfer information, for coordination and approval (the elimination of Zaluzhny is not a decision of the headquarters, but a decision much higher), transferring the task to weapons, loading coordinates into a rocket, etc. , all this is not a question for half an hour. And one should hardly expect that Zaluzhny would have rested at the headquarters in Kherson, right at the front, all day, when immediately after arrival every second is ticking louder and louder.

    It is more likely that the decision to eliminate Zaluzhny did not depend on information about his whereabouts. This information was probably always available and is now, for every representative of the Kyiv regime. But there may well be a leak from the president's office, which served to raise the issue. Kherson is close to the front, a convenient moment.

    Perhaps they just figured out how much Zaluzhny could still be useful, perhaps as part of a military coup, perhaps as a political counterweight to Zelensky. But they came to the conclusion that the Zaluzhny asset of the United States and that the coup, if it happens, will not bring anything good to Russia. His resignation proved to be especially useful in the framework of the ukronoffensive, which is now frustrated.

    The benefits of his resignation were higher than the possible benefits later. This applies to every dill clown at the top of the Ukrainian Reich. They will be smeared on the walls of their bunkers the second a decision is made, there are no secrets about their whereabouts in nature.

    It seems that they lifted the unspoken ban on the destruction of high-ranking leaders on both sides, which the Americans wrote about at the beginning of the SVO. Let's see.
