Ukraine-News: Heavy losses for Russia - soldiers complain about heat, equipment and morale

First report from Wednesday, June 8, 9 a.m.:

Kiev – There has been a war in Ukraine for more than 100 days.

It is believed that there will be heavy losses on both the Russian and Ukrainian sides.

While data on Russia's army is regularly released, data on Ukraine's military is very poor.

According to the Ukrainian General Staff, more than 31,800 soldiers have fallen on the Russian side.

NATO and the British secret service, on the other hand, speak of around 20,000 dead armed forces.

Military casualties appear to be mounting, particularly as a result of the slowed-down offensive in the Donbass.

Recently, a military insider lamented the "miserable" conditions in the army.

This has now been confirmed by several videos of soldiers speaking of poor conditions in the Ukraine war.

"Our people have endured hunger and cold," the Guardian quoted a soldier from the 113th regiment stationed around Donetsk as saying from one of the videos.

"For a long period of time we were without any material, medical or catering support."

Ukraine-News: Heavy losses for Russia - "It's exhausting"

"Given our constant presence and the fact that our staff includes people with chronic medical conditions and mental health problems, many questions arise that are ignored by higher positions at headquarters." Another soldier complained about the staffing of the headquarters, according to the report Troops: "It's exhausting, my whole unit wants a break, but our leadership has said they can't replace us at the moment."

This is confirmed by an analysis on the platform "War on the Rocks".

"The Russian military is well suited to short, high-intensity campaigns characterized by heavy use of artillery," analyze Michael Kofman and Rob Lee in the latest report.

“By contrast, it is ill-equipped for a permanent occupation or a grueling war of attrition that would require a large proportion of Russia's ground forces - and that is precisely the conflict it finds itself in.

The Russian military is not in a position to easily adjust or rotate its armed forces when a significant part of its combat capability is tied up in a war.” President Vladimir Putin recently proclaimed the aforementioned “war of attrition” as a goal.

Ukraine-News: Heavy casualties in the war - heat becomes a problem

Aside from poor equipment and heavy losses in the Ukraine conflict, the expected heat in the summer months could become a problem for the Ukrainian and Russian armies.

"We're sitting here without water.

It's been very hot lately.

Now the heat is added and the boys are still in shock.

Morally depressed,” the US news portal Daily Beast quoted a Russian soldier as saying.

In addition, there is the equipment that was designed for the winter months.

According to the soldier, this is unsuitable for rising temperatures.

According to the report, it was not possible to finally clarify where exactly the Russian soldier is stationed.

However, among other things, he mentioned the low morale among the Russian armed forces.

Time and again it is made public that soldiers are refusing them to continue fighting in the Ukraine war.
