Amidst the fierce battle in Ukraine, UK defense sources have claimed that Russia now has only 10 to 14 days of ammunition left. It has also been revealed from the latest intelligence sources of Britain that while ammunition is running out, they are also finding it very difficult to make an edge in the battlefield. Not only this, maintaining the areas which Russia has occupied, is also proving to be a difficult task. Britain has made this claim at a time when there have been reports that Russia has asked China for weapons and drone aircraft as military help.
According to the Daily Mail report, today is the 20th day of the attack, but even after Russian bombardment of several cities in Ukraine, including Kyiv, the Russian army is finding it very difficult to make an advance. Putin’s allies have also acknowledged this. Meanwhile, US officials have claimed that Russia’s ground attack has almost come to a halt. A UK defense source said, ‘Russian weapons are running out in the war in Ukraine. Its soldiers are getting less and energy is also running out. Now they have only 14 days left to finish it.
