The American and British intelligence services have maintained for several months that The Russian Army has not only pressing problems of lack of men in the Ukraine, but also of weapons and ammunition.
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stressed this week that Moscow is suffering in Ukraine a “significant” shortfall in artillery ammunition, largely due to logistical problems it is facing, caused in part by Ukrainian attacks on depots located in the rear of the Russian Army.
Austin also stressed that Russian troops have fewer and fewer precision missiles as the fighting progresses and that their defense industry has serious difficulties quickly manufacturing new batches of guided weapons.
Some European experts quoted by the continental press consider that The reason for the Russian withdrawal from the northern third of the Kherson region is, more than the enemy advance or supply problems, the shortage of ammunition, which would not last more than a month of fighting.
In the case of the Iskander cruise missiles, which have wreaked havoc on the Ukrainian military and civilian infrastructure, Russia I would not have more than 120 units.
Faced with the impossibility of making progress on the battlefield, the Russian Army has chosen to launch massive bombardments against the Ukrainian energy infrastructure at the gates of winter, for which kyiv has asked the West for the urgent supply of anti-aircraft batteries.
