Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military arsenal may be running thin on missiles as well as equipment vital to the continuing invasion of Ukraine. Putin’s generals are said to be blaming one another in fear of being exterminated should they fail with the ongoing operations.

According to the Mirror, the head of Britain’s armed forces, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin said Putin could be facing an imminent deficit in arms after having underestimated solid resistance from Ukrainians. Radakin said that Russia is fighting a “logistics war” to maintain a steady supply of missiles and other armaments for his troops.

“I think there are several wars going on. There's a tactical, geographical war going on in Ukraine. There's a logistics war going on, in terms of how do you maintain that rate of expenditure,” the Admiral said.

Seemingly trapped in a bungled mission, Putin’s special military operations in Ukraine continue to hit snags after unexpected strong resistance welcomed Russian invading troops in numbers that were much greater than what Russia had anticipated. "He potentially has a problem, because the rate of expenditure and the toughness of the fight is totally different to the one that he perceived on the 24th of February,” Radakin explained.

The Chief of Defense Staff reiterated that Putin has been placed under incredible pressure to ensure his campaign against Ukraine delivers results. This comes after Russia was said to have lost over a quarter of its ground forces and reportedly doddering about in the Donbas region.

Radakin went on to relay that this meant a severe impact on Russian forces with some 25% of their fighting personnel and tactical battalion groups said to have been damaged or effectively taken out. He said Russian forces are struggling to regain momentum and align their forces after 10 weeks of fighting and may have depleted their armaments based on the rate at which Russian military forces have been deploying their missiles.

Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said while on a visit to Finland, that Putin’s generals are moving nearer to the frontline by personally giving directives and screaming at troops to push forward. Wallace said Russia’s general chief of staff General Valery Gerasimov had been pinned as a fall guy for Putin’s mess.

As it is, 25 Russian National Guard “refuseniks” have sued the Russian Army after they were fired for refusing to fight in Ukraine and defied their commanders’ orders to proceed with the invasion. Proceedings began over the weekend with the soldiers dragging North Caucasian District Commander Lt. General Sergey Zakharov to court.
