Military Expert Says Russian Reserves Are All Used Up

Ukrainian Armed Forces reserve Colonel and military analyst Roman Svitan claimed that the Russian military had committed all of its reserves to the front lines in Ukraine.

Svitan believes Moscow cannot effectively address Ukraine’s expanding presence on Kherson Oblast’s Dnipro River. He stated that moving soldiers from fighting to other directions reduces their combat capacity by half. He said military units must be refreshed and rested, and moving them between combat areas worsens the situation.

Ukrainian intelligence warned on Nov. 7 that Russians were rigging crucial infrastructure in occupied Kherson with explosives, implying a withdrawal.

The military ministry revealed that Ukraine will get 2.2 billion in military aid from the Netherlands. According to the Dutch Ministry of Defense, the funds should fulfill Ukraine’s ammunition and combat system maintenance demands.

However, according to the leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin, European nations have spent practically all their military resources supporting Ukraine. Thus, Western aid to Ukraine will alter.

Pushiilin said that one should not anticipate that the West would miss the chance to continue to generate strain for Russia. However, it seems that the extent and types of assistance for Ukraine will change. The DPR chief said on his Telegram channel that Europe had depleted its reserves.

As evidence, he said the US administration just authorized a temporary finance deal without funding Ukraine. French Defense Minister Sebastian Lecornu stated the government would cease supplying Ukraine.

On November 16th, a legacy media outlet reported that the US and its allies required a new approach since Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected all Western attempts to change his objectives about the war in Ukraine.

While Russian military industries are increasing defense manufacturing, the report noted that Western authorities’ pledges to resuscitate their own defense sector have fallen into bureaucratic issues and obstacles in supply chains.
