According to British media reports, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been betrayed by his own soldiers.

The soldiers allegedly leaked sensitive information about the Black Sea fleet to Ukraine, which was then used in an attack. The British tabloid "The Sun" reports that the betrayal took place during a meeting between Admiral Sokolov and other commanders. Sokolov had been handpicked by Putin to restore the glory of the Black Sea fleet after Moscow lost its flagship, the "Moskva."

An anti-government partisan group known as ATESH is said to be behind the betrayal.

Members of the organization revealed that they paid Russian soldiers to disclose sensitive military information, which was later used by the Ukrainian military. The attack resulted in the deaths of 34 soldiers.

The partisans also stated that their informants were not particularly motivated by the money. The primary incentive was to weaken the Russian army and take a step towards ending the war.

The payment was merely an "additional incentive," but it was substantial enough to secure the financial situation of the informants' families.

The incident highlights the growing dissatisfaction among Russian soldiers with the situation on the front and within the country.

This is not surprising, as military personnel are somewhat resistant to the propaganda disseminated by the Kremlin.
