A large number of vehicles that are currently used by the Ukrainian army during the war in their country were seized from the Russian army. In fact, more than half of the Ukrainian tanks in use come from Moscow, according to the British Ministry of Defense’s intelligence service. Several photos taken in Ukraine show how the roads sometimes appear to be littered with abandoned Russian tanks. Many tanks are no longer usable.



“It is possible that Ukraine has captured at least 440 main battle tanks and about 650 armored vehicles since the invasion,” the Defense Ministry said on Friday.

The Russian crew failed to destroy the working equipment and simply left the vehicles behind on withdrawal. According to British intelligence, this shows how poorly trained Russian soldiers are and how low morale is among the troops. The Russians may continue to lose heavy weapons, it seems.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, the British Ministry of Defense has published daily information on the course of the war. In this way, the British government wants to counter Russian announcements about the course of the operation. Moscow says it is a “disinformation campaign by London”.

little experience

Last Monday, the British Ministry argued in an update that many of the forces Russia is calling on and mobilizing in its war against Ukraine have little military experience. The ministry noted that this is due to the lack of trainers, many of whom are already in Ukraine.

Russian soldiers are trained within their own unit, and not in special training centers. Because of the exchange system between different battalions, there is usually room for training, but since many battalions, and therefore trainers have already been activated in Ukraine, the opportunity for military training is now missed. As a result, many of the troops sent to the front lines do not have a military background. The British Ministry estimates that “their dropout rate will be higher as a result”.

A week earlier, the British service focused on the strike loss of combat aircraft by the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine. The British indicated that they suspected the Russian Air Force was under increasingly high risk in light of the Ukrainian advances on the ground and as a result lost more aircraft. They were sometimes Iranians and North Koreans Deployment of drones.
