British Intelligence Update as of Apr 6

As claimed on Russian social media, the Russian MoD has highly likely dismissed Colonel-General Rustam Muradov as commander of the Eastern Group of Forces (EGF) in Ukraine.

The EGF under Muradov has suffered exceptionally heavy casualties in recent months as its poorly conceived assaults repeatedly failed to capture the Donetsk Oblast town of Vuhledar.

The operations attracted intense public criticism from across the spectrum of Russian commentators – including Muradov’s own troops.

Muradov took over the EGF after its disastrous attempt to assault Kyiv from the north-west during the initial full-scale invasion.

He is the most senior Russian military dismissal of 2023 so far, but more are likely as Russia continues to fail to achieve its objectives in the Donbas.
