Is Russia losing the war in Ukraine?

Is Russia losing the war in Ukraine?

Russian forces estimated below 90% combat capability

According to the Pentagon’s briefing today it appears that way:

“Let me remind that is a that is of the combat power that they assembled in Belarus. And in the western part of their country prior to the invasion, it is not an assessment of all Russian military power,” according to the Pentagon official. “But we assessed it for the first time they may be just a little bit below 90% on that. And no indications, no tangible indications of reinforcements brought in from elsewhere in the country. No tangible indications of foreign fighters that have flown into the country… No indications that they’ve moved in foreign fighters from Syria or elsewhere.

“And on resupply, again, no tangible indications that they are making an effort to resupply from outside the theater there that they’re pulling in from elsewhere around the around Russia. But we do continue to see indications that they are having these discussions and that they are making those kinds of plans.”

“It’s our assessment that as they look at reinforcements, it’s probably the most likely scenario that they would want to pull in from places not inside Russia. I’d remind you that of the battalion tactical groups that Mr. Putin has available to him across Russia, he’s used about 75% in this particular operation. So, I think our assumption would be he’d pull from outside the country first, but that’s an assumption and I really don’t want to get any more detailed than that,”

And in conclusion, the Pentagon official said:

“I don’t have anything specifically with respect to Belarusian intentions, we’re watching this as closely as we can. But nothing specific to report to in terms of Belarusian activity towards moving in.”
