This article gives us a glimpse into the top level decisions and diplomacy in the Russia/Ukraine war. IFA encourages intercessors to pray for the leaders of all nations involved, which includes the United States.

From The New York Times. The United States has provided intelligence about Russian units that has allowed Ukrainians to target and kill many of the Russian generals who have died in action in the Ukraine war, according to senior American officials.

Ukrainian officials said they have killed approximately 12 generals on the front lines, a number that has astonished military analysts.

The targeting help is part of a classified effort by the Biden administration to provide real-time battlefield intelligence to Ukraine. That intelligence also includes anticipated Russian troop movements gleaned from recent American assessments of Moscow’s secret battle plan for the fighting in the Donbas region of eastern Ukraine, the officials said. Officials declined to specify how many generals had been killed as a result of U.S. assistance.

The United States has focused on providing the location and other details about the Russian military’s mobile headquarters, which relocate frequently. Ukrainian officials have combined that geographic information with their own intelligence — including intercepted communications that alert the Ukrainian military to the presence of senior Russian officers — to conduct artillery strikes and other attacks that have killed Russian officers. . . .

The administration has sought to keep much of the battlefield intelligence secret, out of fear it will be seen as an escalation and provoke President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia into a wider war. American officials would not describe how they have acquired information on Russian troop headquarters, for fear of endangering their methods of collection. But throughout the war, the U.S. intelligence agencies have used a variety of sources, including classified and commercial satellites, to trace Russian troop movements. . . .

After this article published, Adrienne Watson, a National Security Council spokeswoman, said in a statement that the battlefield intelligence was not provided to the Ukrainians “with the intent to kill Russian generals.”

Not all the strikes have been carried out with American intelligence. A strike over the weekend at a location in eastern Ukraine where Gen. Valery Gerasimov, Russia’s highest-ranking uniformed officer, had visited was not aided by American intelligence, according to multiple U.S. officials. The United States prohibits itself from providing intelligence about the most senior Russian leaders, officials said.

Lord we pray you reveal the truth of this war that is not being reported by the western media. The fact that Ukrainian army has been killing over 14,000 ethnic russians living in the Donbas since 2014…..killing their own citizens who want to speak their own language and be independant from Ukrainian persecution. They have been fighting for independence from the Ukraine and we should support them, not the Ukrainian army that is dominated by Russian haters and nazis. We need to stop supporting this war and stop sending them weapons. Instead we should demand Ukraine negotiate a peace settlement with Russia.

Lord, save the Presidents of nations: Biden, Putin, Zelenskyy, Macron, Trudeau, and others too numerous to mention. Many of the young leaders have been trained in Marxist ways, godless ways. May the fear of the Lord fall upon them so that they know that there is a God in heaven who will act on behalf of His people. Lord, You know all the secret things regarding this war, whether there are hidden things which need to be revealed, or other things to deep for us to know. You are God in heaven. Continue to save Ukrainians, Jews, Russians. Lord, may the truth get to the ears of Russians. Protect the innocent in all of this. Bring this situation to a rightful end. Thank you, LORD. Amen.

Lord, we pray for the salvation of President Putin. We pray that You’d turn him from his wicked ways. We pray that Ukraine would have divine wisdom in how to conquer Russia in all of this. Confuse the plans of their enemies and let them retreat in shame. I pray you’d bring this war to a quick and sudden end. Save future casualties.
