Here’s what we know about the state of Russia’s military

  Here’s what we know about the state of Russia’s military Ukraine’s recent victories expose even more systemic failures.Ukraine’s lightning strike operation in Kharkiv oblast demonstrated the Ukrainian military’s ability to take advantage of those deficiencies to recapture not just territory, but strategically important transport and resupply hubs for the Russian military’s eastern front. Although the war is far from over, and Russia still controls around 20 percent of Ukraine’s territory, the Kharkiv operation provided a strategic and moral win for Ukraine, and revealed a Russian military seemingly unable — or unwilling — to learn from its previous errors.

17th SEP (Reuters) - Developments about war in Ukraine follow. In some cases, information cannot be checked independently.

08.10 a.m. - According to British secret services in the northeast of Ukraine, the Russian military has built up a line of defense between the Oskil River and the city of Swatowe. The Ukrainian offensive continues in the region, the Ministry of Defense in London announced in its regular situation assessment on Twitter. Russia is likely to be particularly important to control the area between Swatowe and the Oskil, since one of the few still functioning main post-school lines from the Russian border region Belgorod is there. Russia will probably try to stubbornly defend the area in Ukraine. "However, it is unclear whether the Russian troops on the front have sufficient reserves and combat morality to ward off another concerted attack by Ukraine."
