US intelligence allowed kyiv to kill Russian generals

According to information from the “New York Times”, at least a dozen generals of the Russian army were killed by Ukrainian soldiers thanks to American intelligence.

The United States has provided information to kyiv, allowing the Ukrainian army to kill several Russian generals since the start of the war in Ukraine, the report said on Wednesday. New York Timesquoting senior US officials on condition of anonymity.

Washington notably provided Ukraine with details of Russian troop movements, as well as the location of mobile military headquarters. Other NATO member countries also provided intelligence to the Ukrainian military “in real time.”

An important role played by the United States

The famous American daily explains that Ukraine combined this aid with its own intelligence to carry out artillery strikes that killed enemy officers.

Since the start of the war, American intelligence has played an important role. At the end of April, NBC News revealed that the CIA devotes significant resources to the protection of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Asked by the New York Times, John Kirby, the Pentagon spokesman, declined to detail the information provided to kyiv. But he acknowledged that the United States gives “Ukraine information it can use to defend itself.”

American assistance to Ukraine in terms of intelligence, which Washington does not show off, is in addition to billions of dollars of military equipment delivered to the kyiv army, including anti-tank weapons, ammunition and, more recently, heavy artillery pieces, helicopters and drones.

“We want to see Russia weakened to such a degree that it cannot do the same kinds of things as the invasion of Ukraine,” said Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin on Monday April 25.

An “irresponsible” statement

After the publication of the article of New York Times, the US National Security Council called the claim that the US was helping Ukraine kill Russian generals “irresponsible”.

“The United States is providing battlefield intelligence to help Ukrainians defend their country,” NSC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson told AFP.

“We are not providing intelligence with the intent to kill Russian generals,” she stressed.
