Russia facing ‘tactical coordination’ issues in Ukraine, says UK
London, Apr 30 (EFE).- Russia is facing tactical coordination issues and inconsistent air support in Ukraine, the United Kingdom’s latest military intelligence report said Saturday.
“Russia hopes to rectify issues that have previously constrained its invasion by geographically concentrating combat power, shortening supply lines and simplifying command and control,” the report issued by the UK’s defense ministry said.
Amid the various challenges the Kremlin is facing, “shortcomings in Russian tactical coordination,” have forced troops “to merge and redeploy depleted and disparate units from the failed advances in north-east Ukraine,” the report continued.
“A lack of unit-level skills and inconsistent air support have left Russia unable to fully leverage its combat mass, despite localized improvements.”
The UK’s intelligence report added that Russian troops will likely be suffering from low and weakened moral. EFE
