– I think the Russians will soon lose their momentum. They will have to slow down somehow, Moore commented, and this will give the Ukrainians the opportunity to counterattack.
The MI6 chief adds that it is important for Ukrainian morale to “demonstrate their ability to retaliate”.
And for the rest of Europe, this will be an important reminder that the Ukrainians may still win this campaign. This is important because we will soon be entering a harsh winter – he adds.
– I don’t want to sound like a Game of Thrones character, but winter is coming. And in the present atmosphere, gas supply pressure and other problems, we will have difficulty – Says the head of British intelligence.
Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine triggered a global energy crisis. Concern about energy supplies is particularly felt in Europe, which is highly dependent on Russian oil and gas supplies. If the West maintains the political will to further arm Ukraine so that it can fend off Russia’s attacks, in time, according to Kremlin analysts and researcher, Russia will eventually reach a dead end in its ability to extend and prolong its offensive.
– Russians are tired. But they have no choice – recently spoken Retired General Ben Hodges, former commander-in-chief of the US Army in Europe.
Hodges suggested that Ukraine might push Russian forces to its pre-war frontier by next year.
After the Russians failed to capture Kyiv in the early days of the war, they focused their attention on Donetsk and Lugansk – the provinces that make up the eastern Donbass region. In early July, Russia took control of Luhansk, but the conflict It turned into a gang warIn which the Russian troops are advancing at an increasingly slower pace, incurring huge losses.
General Mark Milley, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters on Wednesday that “Russian forces have advanced between 8 and 16 kilometers” in the past few months.
“The Russians have a lot of problems in the long run,” Fiona Hill, who served as Russia’s chief expert on the National Security Council during the Trump administration, commented on Insider. According to Hill, Russia will struggle with both the issues of military power and the maintenance of military equipment.
– The issue of armaments becomes a problem in the long run. Russian forces will be doomed to dismantle their military equipment. We see them revert not only to the tactics of an earlier time, but also to their weapons, pulling them from scrap yards or cold stores. There is a lot of speculation about how long they will take to replenish their lost devices Hill says.
Britain’s Ministry of Defense said last week that the Russian government could use prisoner recruitment to address the shortage of people fighting in Ukraine.
According to Moore, Russia has lost about 15,000 jobs so far. Soldiers in Ukraine. But the head of British intelligence stresses that this “may be an understatement”.
These figures were confirmed by CIA Director William Burns, who also spoke this week on the Aspen Security program, explaining that the US intelligence agency reported that the death toll among Russian soldiers ranged between 15,000. Killed and 45 thousand. injured.
– The Ukrainians also suffered in the fighting. Maybe on a smaller scale. But, as is well known, they suffered great losses – Say Burns.
