President Putin is being told Russia’s “special military operation” is going to plan, a top Kyiv intelligence official said – as anyone who told him the real situation on the front lines would “lose his cap or his head.”

In an exclusive interview, Andriy Yusov, spokesperson for the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, told Kyiv Post that “some details of the real situation may be reaching him with some delay, but not the information on the situation in general.”

Referencing Russia’s ongoing and disastrous attempt to take the town of Avdiivka, Yusov said: “How can they tell him about daily losses of dozens of armored vehicles and hundreds of troops in one frontline section alone?”

The messenger risks being fired or worse, Yusov said.
