Russia considering bringing in new troops as advances stall – US intelligence

by naijarex

We’ve had a new update from a US senior defence official about the latest on how the Russian invasion is going.

According to the official, the Russian advances continue to be generally stalled – and there are indications that Russia is deliberating the degree to which it needs to bring in replacement troops from outside Ukraine to join the fight.

The official added:

  • The Russians have launched more than 980 missiles
  • Russia’s military has devoted 75% of its total battalion tactical groups to this invasion
  • In the south of Ukraine, Russian warships are shelling areas around Odesa and there is increased naval activity in the northern Black Sea. Mariupol is isolated and the long-range fires are having a deadly effect
  • In the north, Russian advances are generally stalled near Kyiv
  • The US is talking to allies who have air defence systems that Ukrainians know how to operate – and we can expect air defence systems to be discussed during US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin’s trip to Slovakia and Bulgaria
