Russia launched this invasion with ambitions to take over all of Ukraine, but fails and becomes a less powerful nation than it was in early February.
Russia has lost more than 30% of its ground combat potential in five months of a full-scale invasion, which gives the Ukrainian army confidence in its victory .
This was stated by the head of the British Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Tony Radakin, reports The Guardian .
“They are absolutely clear that they plan to return all their territory on Ukraine’s terms, and they see a Russia that has problems. A Russia that, according to our estimates, has lost more than 30% of its ground combat capability,” he said.play video
Radakin noted that we are talking about the loss of 50,000 Russian soldiers who died or were wounded, almost 1,700 destroyed Russian tanks, almost 4,000 armored combat vehicles.
“Russia started this invasion with ambitions to take over all of Ukraine, Russia had ambitions to take over big cities in the first 30 days, Russia had ambitions to split and pressure NATO – this Russia is a challenge to the world order. Russia is failing in all of these ambitions. Russia is less powerful nation than it was at the beginning of February,” said the British admiral.(C)UNIAN 2022
