There are serious doubts that Admiral Sokolov is now well.
In one of the scenes of the conference call with the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Sergei Shoigu, the commander of the Black Sea Fleet, Viktor Sokolov, was present, with not the back of a chair under his head, but the pillow of a hospital bed.
This drew attention when Oleksandr Kovalenko, a military-political columnist for the “Anti-Information” group, discussed on the broadcast of the Freedom TV channel whether the Russian admiral had survived the missile attack on the headquarters.
“Why is the frame with Sokolov different from the frames with others in the conference call? He is not sitting on a chair, but as if he is lying on a bed. Maybe he is seriously injured and now he cannot move. Therefore, I have serious doubts that Sokolov is fine now,” the expert noted. .
According to him, it is more profitable to use some old footage for Russian propaganda, and should not be affected by such broadcasts.
“We see this incompetence of the Russian campaign, which is trying to somehow compensate for a serious blow to their command staff, which was carried out by the security forces of Ukraine. Here are these attempts to somehow get out of such an embarrassing situation – they clearly show this ineffectiveness and helplessness more than anything,” Oleksandr Kovalenko believes.
On Wednesday, September 27, Russian propagandists released another video in which the commander of the Russian Federation’s Black Sea Fleet, Admiral Viktor Sokolov, is alive and even in a ceremonial white uniform.
