According to the Pentagon, Russian soldiers are facing food shortages and vehicle vandalism

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is progressing more slowly than expected. The Russians are not only dealing with logistical problems, but the resistance of the Ukrainian armed forces is greater than they expected. “There are (…) indications that they are having trouble supplying their forces, and that they have not only gasoline, but food as well,” the Pentagon representative said.

According to the Pentagon, there are indications that “morale is declining among some units because they did not expect the resistance to be so strong.” The representative suggests that the Russians may decide to pause to regroup and reconsider their strategy. He stressed that the Russian forces will certainly adapt and try to meet the challenges. Moreover, Russia has many military resources at its disposal.

400 missiles were fired

According to US estimates, more than 80 percent of the Russian forces that Russia previously amassed on the border are now in Ukraine. “A large proportion of the Russian forces are young conscripts who are poorly trained and unprepared for war. Some have deliberately punched holes in the gas tanks of their cars, apparently to avoid combat.” He did not comment on questions about the information and sources he relied on.

Finally, he stated that the United States suspects that Russia has fired more than 400 missiles at Ukraine since the offensive began. He added that there was no indication of the entry of Belarusian forces into Ukraine.
