According to the White House, Russian leader Vladimir Putin is not being informed about the real score of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Additionally, he is not reportedly informed of the sanctions being imposed on the country that has told heavily on Russia’s economy.

Further, British Intelligence claims that Russian troops are demoralized and also refusing to carry out marching orders due to a shortage of equipment.

"We've seen Russian soldiers - short of weapons and morale - refusing to carry out orders, sabotaging their own equipment and even accidentally shooting down their own aircraft," Director GCHQ Sir Jeremy Fleming said in a speech to the Australian National University in Canberra.

According to Putin’s chief spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, all of this is a huge misunderstanding per a report from BBC.

"They simply don't understand what's happening in the Kremlin, they don't understand President Putin, they don't understand how decisions are taken and they don't understand the style of our work," Peskov stated.

But in all, there looms an apparent miscommunication between Putin and his troops according to US intelligence. Putin allegedly feels misled by the Russian military and such has resulted in tension between the Russian leader and their troops, White House spokesperson Kate Bedingfield claims.

"Putin's war has been a strategic blunder that has left Russia weaker over the long term and increasingly isolated on the world stage," Bedingfield said.

In the eyes of Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby, these assessments do not bode well with Putin possibly having less faith in ending the conflict.

"The other thing is, you don't know how a leader like that is going to react to getting bad news," he quipped.

These claims come at the heels of Russia reportedly having a hard time taking over certain villages. AS mentioned in a previous report, the country has focused on securing the ones they have successfully taken over with their efforts in other regions not panning out accordingly.
