Russian troops suffer heavy losses in Ukraine
Having suffered heavy losses in Ukraine, some Russian troops have been forced to return to Russia and Belarus to reorganize and resupply, the British Defense Ministry said in its latest intelligence update.
It is added that such activity is placing further pressure on Russia’s already strained logistics and demonstrates the difficulties Russia is having in reorganizing its units in forwarding areas within Ukraine.
According to the statement, Russia will likely continue to compensate for its reduced ground maneuver capability through massive artillery and missile strikes on Ukrainian cities.
The ministry also believes that Russia’s stated focus on an offensive in Donetsk and Luhansk is likely a tacit admission that it is struggling to sustain more than one significant axis of advance.
