Things are not going well for the Russian army in its war against Ukraine. According to British findings, there are major problems in two areas in particular.

According to British findings, the Russian armed forces have considerable problems with supplies and troop reinforcements in their war against Ukraine.

The Ministry of Defense in London announced on Wednesday that Russia would have to deploy many auxiliary troops to break down the Ukrainian resistance, including thousands of fighters from the autonomous republic of Chechnya. “The combat deployment of such diverse personnel demonstrates Russia’s significant resource problems in Ukraine and likely contributes to a fragmented command that continues to hamper Russian operations.”

Although Russian troops had encircled the strategically important port city of Mariupol for more than a decade, fierce Ukrainian resistance prevented full Russian control. This has led to frustration and high losses for the Russian armed forces, it said, citing intelligence information.

The Chechen forces would primarily be deployed around the embattled port city of Mariupol and in the eastern Ukrainian region of Luhansk. They are likely to be made up of both volunteers and National Guard units otherwise used to protect ruler Ramzan Kadyrov.
