In a perplexing turn of events, Russian Admiral Viktor Sokolov, who was declared dead last Friday, has appeared in a video released by the Russian Ministry of Defense today.

The video, published by Russian media outlet Tass, shows Sokolov participating in a video conference along with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu and other high-ranking officials in the Russian army.

Ukraine had declared him dead

Ukraine had recently announced that Viktor Sokolov was among those killed in a major missile attack last Friday.

Anton Gerashchenko, an advisor in Ukraine's Ministry of Internal Affairs, made the announcement on behalf of Ukrainian special forces on social media platform X.
