Russia facing munition shortage - Canada’s intelligence

Despite Russia's claims of an alleged shortage of ammunition experienced by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in reality, the Russian invaders have significant supply problems of their own.

This is stated in an update by Canada’s defense intelligence on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

"Russian disinformation efforts often project Russian operational difficulties onto the Ukrainian side, and their forces in Ukraine are very likely currently grappling with their own sustainment problems," the report says.

It is noted that "Ukrainian forces continue to inflict heavy losses on attacking Russian elements, in particular around the towns of Bakhmut and Vuhledar."

"Russia has faced its own serious ammunition pressures during the war, and has had to turn to its few foreign partners to maintain supplies of several munition types," the Canadian military recalled.

As reported, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine notes that despite significant losses, the invaders are not giving up their intention to advance to the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, focusing their main efforts on offensive action in the Kupiansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, and Novopavlivka areas.
