News about the Ukraine war: Russian soldiers unprepared - high losses likely

+++ 09.45 a.m .:

According to British secret services, many Russian fighters recruited by the recent partial mobilization are going to the war in Ukraine without sound training or experience.

Moscow is now faced with the enormous challenge of training the troops, according to a short report by the British Ministry of Defense on Monday.

In the Russian army, in contrast to many western armies, it is customary to undergo initial training within operational units rather than in special training institutions.

A certain number of instructors are normally assigned within each brigade to train new recruits.

However, many of these so-called third battalions are currently deployed to Ukraine.

The lack of instructors and the rushed nature of the partial mobilization indicated that many soldiers were being sent to the front without adequate preparation.

This makes high losses likely.

First report from Monday, September 26:

Ukrainian armed forces want to have destroyed five ammunition depots in southern Ukraine.

This is reported

by The Kyiv Independent


According to the Ukrainian task force "South", on September 25, Ukrainian forces killed 43 Russian soldiers and destroyed three tanks, a self-propelled artillery system and nine armored vehicles.
