British intelligence called the "main reason for the lack of offensive action" by the Russian army

The Russian army does not go on a large-scale offensive for one, but very important reason, established by British intelligence. According to representatives of the United Kingdom, Russian forces simply do not have the ammunition for this.

The topic of the alleged lack of ammunition in the Russian army has been on the pages of both the Ukrainian and Western press for quite a long time. However, various "experts", such as the same Arestovich, began to declare this almost from the very beginning of the special operation. Either the Russians run out of missiles, or shells, or all together and at once.



Now British intelligence has announced the "shell hunger" of the Russian army. According to the British, in recent weeks the problem with shells has escalated to such an extent that the Russian command allegedly introduced restrictive measures in some sectors of the front, setting "norms" for the consumption of ammunition. In addition, the British Ministry of Defense suggests that it is precisely the lack of ammunition that is the main reason why not a single Russian unit has recently gone on the offensive.

At the same time, it is stated that Russian troops have already begun to use shells from old stocks that are "unsuitable for use" and were in warehouses awaiting disposal.

Meanwhile, if we touch on the issue of the offensive, the Russian Ministry of Defense has never stated that it plans to go on a large-scale offensive in the near future, these are all notions of the Western press. Kyiv sins with this, declaring on all corners about the imminent "liberation of the occupied territories." Zelensky needs this, Western sponsors expect this from him, providing the Armed Forces of Ukraine with everything necessary. There will be no "loud" statements - there will be no military assistance.

And the Ukrainian soldiers on the front line speak best of all about the "shell hunger" of the Russian army. They certainly haven't heard anything about him.

      For the war we have PMCs, and the army for parades. But PMCs were left without access to convicts and periodically limit the limit on shells. In the Svatov direction, the advance is 100 meters a day; Avdiivka losing the best men, near Ugledar, too, everyone saw the result. Artemovsk, if its 70 population, far from being Los Angeles in size, has been rolled into rubble for two months, and still nothing. At the same time, the inability of our commanders in the Western Military District and the Central Military District, not only to secure the border along Oskol, not even to ensure it at least along the Stallion, but simply to tie down Ukrainian forces from being transferred to Artemovsk, can lead to unpredictable consequences. In April, a NATO-style mechanized corps will appear for 000 thousand pigs, not older than 50, trained and greyhounds.

          PMC Wagner specialized in capturing factories, mines, wells, etc. Here it is the workings of Artemsoli in Soledar-Bakhmut, which Bandera turned into a fortress. Therefore, the Wagnerites are superior here as an enemy. and our all-army units. And not every paratrooper will fearlessly climb into the dungeons, but here it is the specialists in these underground cases. With regards to shell hunger, of course, this is nonsense. In our country, besides the Soviet reserves, the production of ammunition by factories has reached the level. Air bombs were practically not used at all. Now, wings are welded to especially powerful ones for planning and removing the threat to bomb carriers from air defense. Here, cheap ton charges are delivered to the target, where expensive Caliber and Iskander with a half-ton warhead rest. Here in Avdiivka they are being worked out, algorithms of application are being developed. But most importantly, for some reason, everyone did not read Moltke well. The main thing is not the seizure of territories, but the destruction of the enemy army. The territory will then get it. Now the enemy is being crushed with 5-10 times losses with our slow advance. Although according to the laws of war, the attackers must have a multiple advantage and multiple losses. Why change something when the enemy loses more than 10 thousand a week? And he cannot abandon these fortified areas, the consequences will be even worse.

            I am very afraid that our strategists will then throw Wagner into an open field, where motorized riflemen and tankers should fight.
            Even the use of paratroopers and marines in combined arms combat is a crime.
            It is rightly said about the destruction of manpower. Only there, more caught on the streets die, and not trained to attack.

              Marines with Marines must also know the rules of combined arms combat. Therefore, of course, with losses. but learning is invaluable. If there are no landing operations, then it’s not worth keeping theorists, they should be able to do everything. Or do you think that after the landing, they should rest? The paratrooper captures the bridgehead and holds it in the usual manner. Yes. before the arrival of the main parts, but nonetheless. This springboard can be in a field, in a city, etc. With regards to mines and workings, this is a very unique situation. Such objects are rare. As a rule, the enemy who has settled there is drowned. poison, starve. But the Wagnerians must try to take the object intact. That's why they are PMCs, in order to capture an object that will work for the customer. Such objects as the workings of Artemsoli, on the whole planet, once or twice, have been counted, and here they are defended and captured. It is clear that for this PMC attracts miners, etc., who are not strongly limited by age, are not constrained by the restriction of rights, but feel at home in the dungeons. About those caught on the street, also not so. Covering Arta, he does not understand who is a veteran and who is a mobile. If they hit armored vehicles, aircraft and rocket launchers, then their operators are not caught on the street. Yes, everyone is thrown into the trenches in a row, high qualifications are not required there and mass character is required, but again, they began to throw Teroboronists there - a militia of ideological Banderlogs not just like that, but because of the loss of personnel. And they are already running out, so they are trying to grab on the street. First of all, these heartbreaking footage of street grabs don't mean anything. that this chela will be sent to the front, he has a chance to cut down, pay off, etc. And secondly, there is little sense from him at the front, rather, on the contrary, there will be decomposition. The main loss of the generation of young Bandera is not in more than half a million maimed, killed, lost and captured, but in several million who fled the country and apparently forever. This is their main loss - a kind of desertion.

            "In addition to the Soviet reserves, the production of ammunition by factories has reached the level in our country." What is your evidence?

              Maybe you have it, but we have increased the output by one and a half to two times, transferring to 3 shifts with the same capacities. Defense enterprises have been flooded with money, personnel are being recruited, etc. And stop singing about closed Soviet enterprises. The USSR worked for Africa, Asia, etc. For the same Romanians, Poles and Bandera. The Bolsheviks armed the former Nazi satellite regimes of the Reich to the teeth. Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, the Baltic States and Poland were part of the Reich. They threw weapons to the Chinese, and they turned them against us. Your closed, Soviet plant supplied these with fuses. wassat Whether Russia needs as many factories as the USSR spanked ..

I myself work in the defense industry, I keep wondering who and where the salary raised?! Planned by 7-9%!? So this is an annual compensation for inflation.

                Let's start with the fact that by transferring to three shifts, you should have increased output at least three times, and not one and a half. Your one and a half just says that one shift was scattered into three and the plan was increased. The quality, apparently, is appropriate, that is, a high percentage of defects. Further, a simple calculation that I did here back in the fall said that even compared to the summer consumption of ammunition, production lags behind 200 (!) Times. So your one and a half or two are gulkin's nose. Even now, with a significantly reduced ammo consumption rate, the Gunners are producing 10/1 consumption/production. The reduction in consumption is ensured by a decrease in the number of artillery and MLRS, tanks, and a low rate of use of aviation. Also from the "positive", which contributed to a decrease in the rate of expenditure of ammunition - this is a reduction in the front line due to all sorts of regroupings there. During the entire winter campaign, mainly thanks to the PMC Wagner, the advance of the front was ensured by 20 km. Much less in other places. This is in line with the norms of a one-day advance in a breakout. Moreover, these rates can even be up to 50 km per day. Look how clever it was in the first two weeks of NWO! That is, the Russian front was now advancing so intensively that in three months it provided only a half-day advance. Awesome! Moreover, there have been no more significant advances for more than half a year. In order to ensure the normal pace of progress, in which they lead to a reduction in their own losses and the speedy achievement of goals, it is necessary to increase the pace of production in hundreds once. At the same time, it is necessary to increase the pace of production of absolutely everything, and not just ammunition. We need artillery, we need tanks, armored vehicles, trucks, aviation of all stripes, means of communication, reconnaissance, etc. Indeed, apparently there have been significant advances near Avdiivka in the last two or three weeks, but in fact Avdiivka itself, at the normal pace of the offensive, should have been surrounded in a maximum of two weeks. And it's been taken for over a year now. And they die and get injured there, not only Ukrainians. By the way, it must be said that the contingent of combatants at the front is approximately comparable. It is about 200 from the one on the other side. This is important for the concept of what a shock fist of 50 thousand is. At the same time, the army on both sides is from one million one hundred thousand to one million five hundred. The rest are simply engaged in providing combatants.
                With such alignments, and even when no one promises an offensive for a year, and some noses report that no one has started yet, apparently Russia is preparing for its Hundred Years War of attrition. Exhaustion, by the way, is already underway. Although apparently it will be "2000 years of war, war for no particular reason. War is the business of the young - a cure for wrinkles." Get ready.

                  I wrote a lot and past. Do you write about marriage? What is marriage like in the 21st century? The process has long been automated. None CNC machines. And before the war, defense factories worked not only not in three shifts, but more often in two, but the regime itself was not intensive. Power was idle. Strelkov is a darn analyst, a link to him is bad manners. With regards to promotion, read not Girkin, but Moltke. The main thing is to destroy the personnel of the enemy, and not to capture the territory. An entire, young generation of Ukrainian vyruses is being destroyed and crippled. This is denazification and demilitarization. How to denazify an ukranazi? That's right, tearing off the head. Which is being done successfully, since the total losses exceeded half a million and half of the corpses. But the main losses are millions of young men who left the cordon forever and fled from mobilization. Yes, there are our losses, but if they are 10 times less, then they are justified. Ukraine should be deprived of the future and should be deprived of young, sexually mature carriers of this infection. Once and for all. It is useless to re-educate them, the Vatican has Ukrainianized them for more than a century. Therefore, so. And if, according to your logic, there is not enough ammunition, we will burn them with nuclear weapons. It's inevitable, the Rubicon has been crossed. Either we or they. What Putin hinted at the other day. So far, we are coping successfully, and in Bakhmut alone, 11 thousand were closed in a month, the same number of limbs were torn off, etc.

                Prigozhin reported about 11 thousand corpses of Ukrainians per month in Bakhmut. In addition to Bakhmut, they are wetted along the entire front line. And most importantly, for people like you, I explain that losses include not only the dead, but also the wounded, prisoners, deserters and missing. And on the killed three times or more, the wounded. So count 4 weeks in a month, 11 thousand corpses and 33 thousand statistically wounded. Sum up and you will get 44 thousand per month of Bakhmut losses and 11 thousand per week killed and WOUNDED. And if you take the whole front, and not just Bakhmut, then you will burn laughing And Prigozhin, unlike others, does not run ahead of the locomotive, but referred to the data of the Ministry of Defense. And I commented referring to it. But he had in mind the general losses, and not just the corpses. And I was extremely modest laughing Fershteen?

              Losses are general, besides the dead, even the wounded, deserters, prisoners and missing. On the killed three times wounded. Approximately the same number of the dead - the wounded - the crippled disabled, the rest after a different period of time can again get into service. There are about 50 thousand missing Bandera people in total. Most likely the majority are killed and lying in the fields. Prigogine said that in Bakhmut alone, only 11 people were killed in a month. Count how many are wounded. We have total losses in the area of ​​more than 40 of which more than 20 were killed and maimed. Moreover, the crippled state is worse than the dead, they must be supported. Therefore, not too much ... In Vietnam, the Americans may be 50 thousand, or rather almost 60 with those who died from wounds, diseases, prisoners and missing. But also more than 300 thousand wounded. Those. not three times, but six times. 23,214 are paralyzed; 5,283 lost limbs; 1,081 had multiple amputations. A lot of people suffered severe concussion, which led to disability, etc. In total, 75,000 Vietnam veterans became disabled.

        Both PMCs and the Russian army are grinding Ukrainian troops, grinding Western equipment supplied to them, and doing it successfully. In Syria, active hostilities continued for 5 years, during which time a 300-strong group of militants was crushed, despite the fact that they regularly mobilized (and the population under their control was no less than Zelensky now) and received weapons from the West. The remnants of the militants were herded into a kind of reservation in Idlib. Like this...

        Enough whining already, I'm tired ... About the "lack of shells" for PMCs, they explained everything a long time ago: before that they were given many times more shells than everyone else, and now they began to give out according to the norm. And about the "inability of our generals" - shove your words into yourself .... oops. Our generals are normal, in contrast to the Maidan horses, and sofa "experts" from the Internet.

          Where does the information about 1d10 losses come from? There are no such proportions in the offensive. The enemy is in a concrete shelter, but the attackers are not. Mines, snipers, drones add losses. Hamers too. You can believe in 1k1. But even here it is necessary to prove the facts.

      As soon as Russia reaches the borders of the DPR, the Khokhlonatists can stop all hostilities, offer a truce, and immediately begin to deploy offensive missile launchers on the remaining Ukrainian territory..
      And it will not contradict any international law ..
      And then also announce collective security, the defense of Ukraine, and launch missiles at Moscow.
      Therefore, only the defense of the DPR is an action within the international legal framework, and only by grinding the resources of Ukraine on the territory of the DPR can one legally force them to disarm and carry out denazification.

        Beautiful! But at the very beginning of the NWO we took the Kherson region and included it in the Russian Federation later. This already breaks the whole concept you described of adhering to some kind of international legal boundaries.
        As for "grinding", from my point of view, such a strategy of action in Ukraine, although it may lead to certain tactical successes, in itself leads to an increase in the strategic problem. The more people "on the other side" will be tied with blood, the greater the resistance to the best resolution of the situation (regional inclusion of the territory of Ukraine into the Russian Federation on the rights of regions of the Russian Federation and not some kind of deep autonomy) we will meet. Even if we assume that a significant part of the dying Armed Forces of Ukraine are not "accomplices" but "fellow travelers", the attitude of their family members and social circle to what is happening and to our side will clearly not improve from the fact that there will be "-1 dill", as the most cynical would say . Knocking out the breadwinner, husband, father, son, etc. is not something that Solovyov or Skabeeva can talk about.
        This is not a question of "spherical humanism in a vacuum" now, although I am personally horrified by the growth of some kind of cannibalistic tendencies around the entire conflict among the masses. It is precisely the question of creating by such actions by us - problems for the future. Which we will have to decide.
        Encirclement and mass coercion to surrender under the threat of complete annihilation is a suitable strategy of action, demonstrating, among other things, high military art.

          I look at this not from the point of view of Ukraine / Russia ..
          In the end, many Germans died from Russian weapons in the 40s, but after a while relations became normal, even good.

          We must always remember that the people of Ukraine in the political sense are the plaything of the Americans.
          And this is not an emotional figure of speech, but the actual state of affairs. In Ukraine, after all, the main political project is accession to the EU and NATO. And this, in fact, means complete submission to American foreign policy.

          And Bush Jr. expressed their foreign policy: take Ukraine into NATO in order to put pressure on Russia ..

          On the other hand, Russia cannot take actions that would sharply negatively regard neutral or allied countries like India, China, Turkey or Kazakhstan.

          Therefore, the main task of Russia is precisely the demolition of the political project of Ukraine.
          And for this, Russia's actions must be such that the Americans could not at some point say that they recognize the new regions as Russia, and deploy their missiles in the remaining regions of Ukraine.

        The commentator does not understand that the PMC works under a state contract and is obliged to purchase everything for itself. But the government teaches, which created the PMC, which is not formally connected with the government. This is the whole point that is not connected!

        Do you really think that the Wagnerites decided to earn some money in the Ukraine and that is why they are fighting? And in the Congo and in Libya and in Syria? I've never seen more childish reasoning. The beneficiary of all their affairs and location is the Russian state. It's so convenient and right for him. Not everything can be shown. From the summer-autumn battles it is clear that the musicians, unlike the Ministry of Defense, began to play a more important role, to take on tasks that are not yet up to the cadre. Therefore, ammunition should be supplied to them according to the level of tasks assigned! Well done guys!

        These balabols warned about February 24, 2022 several months in advance. And in our country, until the last days, they argued that nothing of the kind could be.

      This is how the squabbles between the MO and the head of Wagner, about the lack of shells, result in the conclusions of British intelligence.

      I think there is no smoke without fire! It's about the lack of ammunition. Taking into account our not glorious past {90s}, they have a lot of informants, so they know what they are writing about. There is hope that they are mistaken and when the earth dries up, ours will go forward. Will watch.

      About 10000 is not too much.? Americans lost 50000 and left Vietnam. So this is for 10 years.

      1. Americans could get on a steamer and sail away. And where can Ukrainians run away, when they have already begun to take women into the troops?
      2. Another 300.000 American invalids must be taken into account, and not just those killed.
      3. Volunteers for 20 years of war have already ended in the United States.

      “The army is not just a kind word, but a very quick deed.
      So we won all the wars.
      While the enemy is drawing an offensive map, we change landscapes, moreover, manually.
      When the time comes for an attack, the enemy is lost in an unfamiliar area, and comes into complete sky readiness.
      This is the point, this is our strategy." "DMB" (2000)

      There were definitely fewer shells. So the English intelligence is not lying. And without shells, you can’t attack or counterattack. Yes, and in defense is not particularly sweet. In summer and autumn, 10000 wagons were sprayed into the world, which is now surprising.

        Did you, together with the English scouts, make your way to the art warehouses and count everything piece by piece, and at the same time count the 10000 wagons scattered into the white light, as a result of which debit and credit did not converge in your accounting department? God, what a nightmare!
        hmm ... so leave you unattended after that.

      But most importantly, for some reason, everyone did not read Moltke well. The main thing is not the seizure of territories, but the destruction of the enemy army.


      well, they didn’t read the molt, but they saw how the next generation deviated a bit from his plan. It turned out to be easier to grind the enemy by surrounding him, depriving him of communications, supplies, coordination, provisions, spirit, and not by frontal attacks with significant losses.

        Surrounding it is possible, only for this you need a 10 millionth army and years in reserve. The problem is that in million-plus cities like Kharkov, Kyiv, etc., there are not Germans, but ours, Russian people. And until the cities are bombed by carpet bombing, they cannot be left in the rear. And the task of destroying the Nazis must be solved. How to solve it? How did Stalin decide? Doesn't care about civilians. Gad did not evacuate Peter and Tsaritsin. He does not feel sorry for Russian women and children, he was not Russian. Likewise, Zelensky, just like Bandera, do not consider the inhabitants of the cities to be their own. And who told you about frontal attacks? Maybe Girkin? How did you take Mariupol? Pre-surrounded. What is being done with Bakhmut? Surround. What is being done with Avdiivka? Surround. And what? Until they clean it up, they will sit and hide behind civilians. Therefore, our General Staff was still able to lure the punishers out of the cities, allowing them to believe in themselves and still inflicted significant losses on the enemy. Good losses. Just the same and that's it, kranty.

            Everywhere. Before that, they sat in the cities and attacked our communications. After an imaginary, Kharkov retreat, from the right bank, from Kyiv and Nikolaev, as well as Kharkov, the Vushnikovs were thrown into the Donbass. They were killed when they believed in themselves and went on the offensive. The offensive was choked with blood in Liman, etc. Then they abandoned the defense forces, including Western Ukraine, and now they are being finished off. A clear front line has been established and they have to keep this line. Yes, they rely on Bakhmut, on Ugledar and Maryinka, but between them they have to keep the front line with trenches and oporniks, where they are wetted daily, if not more than in Bakhmut. These oporniks are smashing ours, and banderlogs are forced to send meat and equipment to them again. And such a carousel, every day. Also Avdeevsky and Bakhmutsky sack devours meat and resources. They also, ours try not to slam into the boilers, so that losses do not decrease. In a month, Bakhmut alone eats about 40-50 thousand in total losses and 10-11 thousand only killed. A little less is Avdiivka, Marinka, etc. And every day the defenders between them are covered with Grads. And why change something if the enemy loses about a hundred thousand wounded, captured, killed and lost a month. According to the West.

      I'm very afraid that our strategists will then throw Wagner into an open field

      And don't be afraid - your-our strategists are not so stupid as to throw professional attack aircraft to storm an open field. In addition, Wagner has his dad - Prigogine, and without his knowledge, no one will throw musicians anywhere. Yes, they have a contract, as they themselves sometimes say - with the Moscow Region and with the Motherland, but only their immediate superior, Prigozhin, gives them orders.

      There is another interesting point in what you said - Western partners pumping Kiev with weapons, as they say in various media, already to the detriment of their security, Zelensky put forward the condition that if he loses Bakhmut and other strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then in the foreseeable future he may be left without their military and financial support. Maybe it's just their scarecrows, but maybe not; and they actually quietly merge Ze and his gang, in hindsight starting to understand the futility of the war with Russia to the last Ukrainian.
      Of course, the impudent Saxons now don’t care how many yesterday’s brothers will die on both sides in this war, but they know how to count grandmas, and they probably began to understand that they themselves must restore from the ruins what is now turning into a scorched desert, including with their weapons, their loot, it will get up very expensive. Before ours, the task now is to bleed the Kyiv junta as much as possible, breaking her arms and legs, if possible, so that she does not run far; someone must answer in the new "Nuremberg" for what has been happening on the outskirts of all these years, starting with the last Maidan.
      ...destroy the army, and the territory itself will come. - as one of the great strategists of the past once put it
