War in Ukraine: British Intelligence: Moscow is running out of ammunition

According to British secret services, Moscow is increasingly running out of ammunition in the Ukraine war. "We know, and Russian commanders at war know that they are running out of equipment and ammunition," said GCHQ director Jeremy Fleming, according to a pre-release speech transcript quoted by the BBC. Russian President Vladimir Putin makes misjudgments and strategic mistakes.

"Since he is hardly challenged internally, his decisions have turned out to be flawed," said the secret service director. In the meantime, the Russian people have also become aware of the consequences of "Putin's self-imposed war" for them personally in their own country - for example fewer opportunities to travel and hardly any access to modern technologies and external influences due to Western sanctions.

In the daily short report from the British Ministry of Defence, the British secret services deal with the new role of army general Sergei Surovikin. His appointment a few days ago was allegedly an attempt to improve the conduct of Russian attacks in Ukraine. For a long time, Moscow had no one responsible for overall supervision of what was happening. Nonetheless, Surovikin was faced with a Russian army that was poorly equipped for the task.

The British Ministry of Defense has published daily information on the course of the war since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine at the end of February, 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 targeted disinformation campaign.
