russia Has already Exhausted the Reserves of Combat-Ready Battalion-Tactical Groups
In russia, covert mobilization continues at the state level. In Belhorod and Rostov oblasts, new units of the occupying forces are being formed and sent to the territory of Ukraine based on conscripts and mobilization resources.
However, the use of such forces is largely ineffective. This was said on the air of the national marathon by the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitskyi.
“Conscripts are summoned through the military registration and enlistment offices; they sign contracts, after which new units are formed and sent to the territory of Ukraine.
The fighting shows how effective the use of such troops is. In many cases, this is not effective, but we really understand that today the russian federation has exhausted the resources related to the most combat-ready battalion tactical groups. Although it still has enough reserves to enter the territory of Ukraine,” said the representative of Ukraine’s military intelligence.
Also, Vadym Skibitskyi confirmed the information about the depression and depressed moral and psychological climate in the units of the russian occupation forces.
“The most depressing morale have the 1st and 2nd Army Corps soldiers from the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Because that is where the forced mobilization and conscription of the russian occupation forces takes place. Untrained personnel, who have essentially no combat experience, are sending to the most important areas. In addition, those reservists who are sent to Ukraine from russia, especially from its central regions, eastern regions, they just went and thought they were going to make money. Here they are essentially met with strong resistance from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, defence forces, territorial defence and the entire population of Ukraine,” said the representative of Ukraine’s military intelligence and added that instead of receiving money, the russians return home in bags for corpses, which greatly affects the morale of the occupiers.
