Russia incapable of overthrowing Ukrainian government - Canadian intelligence

Russian forces deployed in Ukraine are insufficient for Russia to replace the government in Kyiv.

That’s according to the Canadian Forces Intelligence Command, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Currently, Russia’s deployed forces in Ukraine are insufficient for it to achieve its stated objective of replacing the government in Kyiv," reads the tweet posted by the agency’s press service.

It is noted that "Russia will continue to struggle to make even modest tactical progress on the eastern and southern fronts."

This leads to a significant decrease in the number of participants in this year’s annual strategic military exercises Vostok.
