Imagery shows ground targets. ü Russian General-Major Sergei Goryachev Elimination: ü General-Major Sergei Goryachev was almost certainly killed in a strike on a command post on or around June 12th, in southern Ukraine. Goryachev was the chief of staff of 35th Combined Arms Army (35 CAA). ü With 35 CAA’s nominated commander, General-Lieutenant Alexandr Sanchik, reported to be filling positions at headquarters, there is a realistic possibility that Goryachev was the acting army commander at the time of his death. ü Goryachev is the first Russian general confirmed killed in Ukraine since the start of 2023. o Wagner Group: ü On June 10th, the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) demanded that members of ‘volunteer formations’ such as Wagner Group sign contracts directly with the MoD, a move endorsed by President Putin on June 13th. ü For several months, Wagner’s owner Yevgeny Prigozhin has been aiming criticism at the MoD hierarchy but deferred to Putin’s authority. ü However, Wagner’s owner has stated publicly that none of his employees will sign a contract with the MoD. o Russian Tactical Combat Air Sorties: ü In the last two weeks, there has been an uptick in Russian tactical combat air sorties, especially over southern Ukraine.
