Monday Report From British intelligence indicates that the Russian air force underperformed in the war against Ukraine, and that this may have been one of the main factors in the success of the limited Russian invasion.
For years, the report stated, “Russian combat air training has likely been designed to impress senior officers, rather than developing dynamic cooperation between different departments.”
They further wrote that while Russia has an impressive roster of modern combat aircraft, the air force has not yet been able to develop the culture and skills required to deliver stronger air.
The report also claims that due to disappointing air performance, Russia had to compensate ground forces – now depleted.
Four months of brutal fighting in Ukraine put a heavy burden on soldiers on both sides. According to Sunday’s report, combat morale has been battered.
Troops on both sides are engaged in fierce fighting in the Donbass, and may have a varying fighting spirit, as it was said in Intelligence update.
Many of them may have fled Ukrainian forces in recent weeks, but morale among the Russians may be particularly problematic.
British intelligence claims that some Russian units refuse to carry out orders, and that there are armed confrontations between the officers and their forces.
In a separate update of Ukrainian intelligence, Russian soldiers allegedly in intercepted phone calls complained about conditions at the front, poor equipment and a general lack of personnel.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said during his daily work early Monday morning that he expects Russia to intensify its attacks on the country in the near future.
Zelensky places the assumption in the context of the European Commission’s proposal to make Ukraine a candidate country, writes NTB. This week, the 27 member states of the European Union will vote on the proposal.
“This week we should expect Russia to intensify the fighting,” Zelensky said.
– And not only against Ukraine, but also against other European countries. We are preparing. we are ready. He says we are warning our partners.
The case is updated.
