Numerous reports have been circulating much of today (Sunday, May 15, 2022) claiming that a U.S. Military Commander surrendered to Russian forces from the Azovstal Steel Mill in Mariupol, Ukraine.   As of 6:17 PM EDT, a photo purported to be U.S. Navy Admiral Eric Olson, has been released allegedly showing the Admiral under arrest by Russian troops.

The photo, featured above, is claimed to be Admiral Eric T. Olsen.

From Wikipedia:

Eric Thor Olson (born January 24, 1952) is a retired United States Navy admiral who last served as the eighth Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) from July 2, 2007 to August 8, 2011.

His official US Military photo (Years old) appears on Wikipedia as shown below:

He previously served as Deputy Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command from 2003 to July 2007. Olson was the first Navy SEAL ever to be appointed to three-star and four-star flag rank, as well as the first naval officer to be USSOCOM’s combatant commander.

He took command from Army General Bryan D. Brown in 2007.[1] Brown and Olson had served together at the SOCOM headquarters in Tampa for four years.

He retired from active duty on August 22, 2011 after over 38 years of service. He relinquished command of SOCOM to Admiral William H. McRaven the same day.

Below is a more recent photo of Admiral Olson, taken in March, 2020:

Along with U.S. Admiral Olson (Ret’d), British Lieutenant Colonel John Bailey and 4 NATO military instructors also allegedly surrendered to Russia.

There is also news of Canadian, French, and Turkish military officers still hiding inside tunnels beneath the Azovstal Steel Mill in Mariupol.

What these men were allegedly doing there and who sent them there, is not yet known.

If confirmed by the Pentagon, the massive question this raises is why are U.S. military officers, and the military officers from other NATO countries, inside Ukraine at all, and who authorized them to participate in waging undeclared war upon Russia?

(Remark: I have reached out to the Pentagon Public Affairs Duty Officer via the off-hours/Weekend media contact telephone number, seeking Pentagon comment.   The Duty Officer I spoke with requested I send them details via email, which has been done.

If a reply comment is received from the Pentagon Press Office, it will be added to this story.)

UPDATE 7:02 PM EDT —

There is a dispute as to WHERE this photo was taken.   There is a claim it was taken in Luhansk, and not in Mariupol.  There is also a dispute as to WHEN the photo was taken, with claims that it was taken on April 14.

The “where” and “when” arguments do not take issue with WHO is allegedly shown in the photo.

One thought on “REPORTS: U.S. Admiral Surrenders to Russia in Mariupol, Ukraine”
  1. Well, if Russia is catching some of our war-hawks at least we won’t have feed them anymore or listen to their infernal screeching, “War is Security”. Real ‘newspeak’ stuff that and a really catchy meme. Catching even a ‘retired’ four star war-hawk is quite a prize for the Russians. Their complex troubles are done with and all the hawks have to worry about is the next meal they receive from their new benefactors. It’s probable they will be disavowed as they undoubtedly expected. I feel sorry for the families of the hawks though.

    I’m hoping this story proves to be a false rumor though it certainly fits in with what is happening in Europe. If the Admiral appears on CNN it would be a great relief to the Brandon administration I’m sure. The four-star admiral could then sneer and snicker about how desperate the Russians must be to fabricate such a story while they are being ‘defeated’ by the proud Ukrainian Army standing triumphantly in the Cauldron and dying of starvation. Funny how food can make the strongest warrior decide that decent treatment in the hands of the ‘foul’ enemy is preferable to that pain in the gut and the rest of the body. Funny how siege is so much less costly in troops and material than continued assault against dug-in troop formations isn’t it? Patton said fixed formations were a monument to the stupidity of man. I’m sure that after Kursk, Zukov would have agreed.

    It is a toss-up as to which is more moronic. Digging in and allowing yourself to be surrounded or attacking the dug-in troops who retain their weapons to the bitter end directly? Digging in and retaining lines of supply is not such a bad idea but it often turns into the loss of supply lines. Logistics, logistics, its all about logistics and patience. Remember, Russia maintains air supremacy over the skies of Ukraine. The Ukrainian army in the Cauldron is cut off and not receiving very many supplies. They are of course scavenging constantly.
