Boris Johnson's final stretch of his mandate was defeated by scandals. His will to remain the most belligerent European leader in opposition to Russia for the invasion Ukraine is being applied to the letter. According to the Ministry of Defense, the 11th Security Assistance Brigade of British Army has received over 1,500 Ukrainian soldiers and has begun to teach them how to use weapons, combat tactics, and surveillance strategies. In the next few months, 10,000 soldiers will be able to pass through these camps. The governments of London, Kyiv and Kiev hope to increase ground offensive capability of the Ukrainian troops through this program. In the past three weeks, a large part of Donbas was ceded to the Russian war machine.
It is now difficult to break the wall of power that the invaders didn't show at the start of the war. Since dawn, the bombings have been relentless. Within 24 hours, Russia attacked 177 Ukrainian positions. At least six civilians were killed in explosions that occurred in Kharkov and Bakhmout. Other sources have cited a total of twenty-six victims. All signs point to the Kremlin planning a large-scale offensive. The authorities have ordered the evacuation of the Donetsk residents, who fear that "big battles" will follow.
According to British Intelligence reports, the Russian Army is "reconstructing" or rather being reconstituted to attack areas in the region it doesn't yet control. This was confirmed by the General Staff. According to military sources, this movement is the result of President Vladimir Putin's order to his army after the capture of Lugantsk, a neighboring province. This was in preparation for the next battles.
British Intelligence claims that the troops are being provided with outdated and mediocre war material. This would indicate that either Moscow believes that it will not face as much resistance at this stage and has decided that the most expensive and modern arsenal is sufficient or that the equipment has been exhausted and must be replaced. Many analysts agree with this conclusion, pointing out that the Russian aircraft is using outdated and inexact missiles in the bombing of Kremenchuk's residential areas.
The situation in Ukraine's arsenals is not good. Ukraine is dependent on foreign weapons to its total. The Zelensky government reiterated to the international community that they need to be supplied. The Kremlin has refined its targeted attacks against import bombs, in addition to the shortage of ammunition. He confirmed this morning that his missiles destroyed a hangar in which American M-777 155mm Howitzers were kept in Chasuv Yar. Additionally, several Ukrainian batteries were destroyed. His operators were all killed.
So, kyiv welcomed the Pentagon's announcement of new US military assistance with a sigh. Washington, which has spent 6.9 billion dollars on this war, will provide the Ukrainian forces with four Himars multiple launcher systems and 155 millimeter missiles. The Ministry of Defense plans to use them to improve its firepower and, most importantly, to increase the accuracy of its cannons in order to attack Russian positions.
The UK is a major donor to Zelensky's government. The British Executive has given 2,668 million Euros in military equipment. To this package is also the training of the Ukrainian military on British soil. There are more than 1,500 soldiers currently in the UK. They arrive in planes carrying between 100-200 people each week. They will soon have trained 10,000 of them," Vadym Prystaiko, Ukraine's ambassador to London, told Ukrinform.
The country's main training center is located in Wiltshire in the south-west. This program teaches you how to use certain next-generation long-range rocket launch system systems and short arms. The missiles can hit targets up to eighty kilometers away, and therefore are used in an offensive on Russian territory. This has caused a lot of controversy between the West and Moscow. The United States and Britain have been promised by Kyiv that they will only use them within the Ukraine war zones. The British commanders were joined by several New Zealand commanders. They spoke out to highlight the "enthusiasm” of the Ukrainian soldiers in statements to BBC. They don't stop working. They work hard and they work even harder.
Ben Wallace, the Defense Minister, has confirmed that this training is the "new phase of UK support for Ukraine." Wallace stated that the British Army's worldwide experience will be used to help rebuild their forces, increase their resilience and defend their sovereignty and their rights to choose their own future.
