The Russian offensive in the Donbas has lost momentum and is well behind schedule. Russia has failed to achieve significant territorial gains over the past month while maintaining a consistently high level of attrition.

British intelligence reports .

“Now Russia has probably lost a third of the ground combat forces involved in Ukraine since February,” the statement said.

Despite small initial gains, Russia has not been able to make significant territorial gains over the past month while suffering heavy losses. British intelligence predicts that these losses are likely to be exacerbated by the loss of critical factors such as bridging equipment and reconnaissance, surveillance and reconnaissance drones.

The equipment for crossings was lacking from the very beginning of the war, slowing down and reducing the offensive maneuver.

The Russians also feel the need for more drones, as they are vulnerable to Ukrainian air defenses. 

“Under the current conditions, it is unlikely that Russia will sharply accelerate the pace of advance over the next 30 days,” predicts British intelligence.

  1. I pray that west doesn’t give in to Chief scum sucker’s overtures for peace. Fuck him. Let him get into one of the tanks he loves cross the border, and let one of our boys show him how they destroy his toys with him in it.

    • Since the chief cockroach wants to be able to keep what he has already taken, I doubt the west gives in. If Putin wants peace, he gets completely out of Ukraine. That is the nonnegotiable minimum.
