The Ukrainians have recently been able to attack Russian logistics hubs and communication channels more easily, which is why Moscow is presumably moving the hubs further south and east, according to the daily summary report by the British Ministry of Defense on Friday. A lot of equipment has to be shifted from rail to road – on the road, the transports are easily attacked.
Ammunition gaps in Russia’s arsenal, exacerbated by such logistical challenges, are likely the reason Russian forces are currently struggling to conduct effective ground offensives, the British said.
Since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine at the end of February, the British Ministry of Defense has published daily information on the course of the war, citing intelligence information. In doing so, the British government wants to both counter the Russian portrayal and keep allies in line. Moscow accuses London of a disinformation campaign.
