News zum Ukraine-Krieg: Russische Soldaten unvorbereitet - hohe Verluste wahrscheinlich

+++ 09.45 Uhr: Viele durch die jüngste Teilmobilmachung rekrutierte russische Kämpfer ziehen nach Einschätzung britischer Geheimdienste ohne fundierte Ausbildung oder Erfahrung in den Krieg in der Ukraine. Moskau stehe nun vor der enormen Herausforderung, die Truppen zu schulen, hieß es am Montag in einem Kurzbericht des britischen Verteidigungsministeriums.

In der russischen Armee sei es im Gegensatz zu vielen westlichen Armeen üblich, eine Erstausbildung innerhalb operativer Einheiten zu durchlaufen statt in speziellen Ausbildungseinrichtungen. Normalerweise werde innerhalb jeder Brigade eine gewisse Zahl an Ausbildern bereitgestellt, die neue Rekruten trainieren würden. Viele dieser sogenannten dritten Bataillone seien jedoch aktuell in die Ukraine entsandt. Der Mangel an Ausbildern und der überstürzte Ablauf der Teilmobilmachung deute darauf hin, dass viele Soldaten ohne ausreichende Vorbereitung an die Front geschickt würden. Dies mache hohe Verluste wahrscheinlich.

Erstmeldung vom Montag, 26. September: Ukrainische Streitkräfte wollen fünf Munitionsdepots im Süden der Ukraine zerstört haben. Das berichtet The Kyiv Independent. Demnach teilt das ukrainische Einsatzkommando „Süd“ mit, dass ukrainische Streitkräfte am 25.
