Russian troops suffer logistical problems in South - Ukrainian Security Service
Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) Colonel Roman Kostenko said that due to constant attacks by the Ukrainian Armed Forces on Russian ammunition depots, the invaders have logistical problems in the South
He told about this on the air of Espreso TV channel.
"Russian enemy has long ago realised that the tactic of ammunition stockpiling does not work. After we got Himars MLRS, their ammunition depots are often destroyed. They are also no longer trying to accumulate weapons and ammunition near the frontline. That is why they are now often dispersing their forces and means along the entire frontline," said Kostenko.
The SBU colonel stressed that now the Russian soldiers are spending more time to supply ammunition
"So far, the soldiers do not have a shortage of artillery ammunition. However, they have problems with logistics. The occupiers spend considerable effort and resources to supply ammunition to the frontline. The enemy can still supply ammunition. In particular, through the Crimean bridge. Yes, the logistics along this chain are worse, but it still works. They are also repairing damaged bridges across the Chongar Isthmus," he added.
On 6 August, the Ukrainian military completely liberated Urozhaine in the Donetsk region. The defence forces are consolidating their positions.
ISW later noted that the Armed Forces have many options to cut critical Russian land routes along the northern coast of the Sea of Azov, of which the de-occupation of Melitopol is only one.
