UK intelligence assessment: ‘Faltering’ Russia still facing logistical problems with invasion

A British intelligence assessment says Russia’s invasion of Ukrainian is still plagued by logistical issues.

“Logistical problems continue to beset Russia’s faltering invasion of Ukraine,” says the UK Defense Ministry.

“Reluctance to maneuver cross-country, lack of control of the air and limited bridging capabilities are preventing Russia from effectively resupplying their forward troops with even basic essentials such as food and fuel,” the assessment says, noting that Ukrainian counter-attacks mean Moscow is diverting troops to defend supply lines.

Struggling to advance, Russian forces have bombed apartment buildings and appear to be targeting civilians and killing non-combatants.

Russian troops have been accused of taking people hostage as human shields, rape, killing a man who had his hands up, and of war crimes.
