According to British intelligence experts, Russia’s invasion troops in Ukraine are clearly marked by their heavy losses.

"The Russian armed forces are increasingly exhausted," said the daily situation report of the British Ministry of Defense on the Ukraine war on Tuesday.

The main components of six different armies were used in the battle for Sieverodonetsk.

Nevertheless, only a short-term goal was achieved with the capture of the city.

The Russian military leadership is currently accepting "a level of reduced combat effectiveness that will probably prove unsustainable," the experts summed up.
