Commander of the grouping of Russian troops “Center”, a participant in hostilities in the Caucasus and Syria, a newly minted hero of Russia Alexander Lapin takes part in the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation in Ukraine.

“The 1st Guards Tank Regiment, commanded by Lapin Jr., failed the offensive. Part was actually defeated, a huge number of tanks were lost, many tankers were killed, at least several dozen were captured. Several people are missing. And in these conditions, the general , the commander of the Central Military District arrives and hangs a medal on his chest to his own son, who not only did not complete the task, but also failed it, lost an elite unit,” journalist Ilya Barabanov noted.
In this war, Lapin himself has already earned himself a gold star and the title of hero, moreover, under the patronage of Minister Shoigu. Alexander Lapin is credited by Russian propagandists with the successful advance of troops in the Lisichansk region. There, the Russians watered the city from artillery and aviation for more than a month and left no stone unturned from it.
Earlier, the British Ministry of Defense reported that since the beginning of June, the Russian high command removed several generals from key operational command positions in the war against Ukraine. The forces in the Donbass were led by General Sergei Surovikin.
