The dictator despises the retinue: analysts explained the changes in the top military leadership of Russia
< p _ngcontent-sc89="" class="news-annotation">In Russia, personnel movements among the top military leadership continue to be recorded. The last of them is the replacement of Deputy Defense Minister Sergei Shoig Bulgakov with Mizintsev.
Analysts have focused on personnel changes among Russia's top military leadership. Reporters from the Institute for the Study of War noticed that in this way Putin is trying to transfer all the blame for the failures at the front from himself to others.

Analysts recalled that the day before, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev became Deputy Minister of Defense. Now he will be in charge of the logistics of the Russian army. Prior to this, General of the Army Dmitry Bulgakov performed this work.
Recall that Mizintsev is called the “Mariupol butcher”.Colonel-General participated in Russian operations in Syria. But in Ukraine, he gave criminal orders when Mariupol was under siege. The attack on a maternity hospital, a children's hospital, a drama theater and the destruction of residential areas is his work.
As noted at the Institute, the ways is looking for those responsible for the failures in the war only among the top military leadership. And that is why he undoubtedly exchanges one for the other. In the hope that this time the desired results will be achieved.
The authors of the report believe that such movements are unlikely to eliminate fundamental structural problems,faced by the Russian army. At the same time, these changes clearly reflect:
- Putin's personal approach to leadership,
- relative disregard for system building.
These two points, analysts are convinced, contribute to the general failures that the Russian army is experiencing in Ukraine.
Putin's wages have increased
But there is a change in Putin's behavior. It is about the desire to enrich yourself on an ongoing basis. So the President of Russia decided to raise the wages of himself, as well as several officials.
Decree on wage increases for himself, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Head of the Russian Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin was personally signed by the dictator.
The document published on the President's website testifies to an increase of 4%. Note that Putin's average salary is per month in 2021 amounted to 832.8 thousand rubles. If you convert in hryvnia, it will be more than 534 thousand hryvnia.
