A Russian soldier is said to have run his colonel over with a tank, while two other service men were seen ranting about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s bulls, as well as the invasion of Ukraine, which has resulted in numerous casualties.

According to Ukrainian journalist Roman Tsimbalyuk, the Russian soldier driving the tank blamed the group’s commander, Col. Yury Medvedev, for the deaths of his friends.

Despite the lack of independent confirmation, footage published by Ramzan Kadyrov, the Chechen leader and close Putin friend, showed Medvedev being taken to a hospital.

Two units of Russian soldiers in Makarov, in the Kyiv region, have lost at least half of their comrades in intense clashes, according to Tsymbalyuk.

Meanwhile, two Russian soldiers were overheard in an intercepted phone call lamenting about the Russian quagmire in Ukraine.

The soldier told how Ukrainian troops ripped apart a column of Russian troops, claiming that half of his squad had frostbite on their feet.

The military member further claimed that on the fourth day of their deployment, their commander, Lt. Gen. Yakov Rezantsev, informed them that the war would be over fast.

According to the phone call, soldiers have also complained that when they reported that their Kevlar jackets lacked reinforced panels, they were ignored.

NATO estimated on Wednesday that 7,000 to 15,000 Russian soldiers had died in four weeks of fighting in Ukraine, where intense resistance from the country’s defenders has given Moscow the quick win it expected.

In Afghanistan, Russia lost roughly 15,000 troops over a ten-year period.
