The commander of the British army, Tony Radakin, said that Russia had already lost the war in Ukraine in a strategic sense and that its army had been weakened.
Radakin pointed out that Russia has great losses on the battlefield, that it is running out of soldiers and modern projectiles, and that it will never be able to rule the whole of Ukraine.
– Russia made a terrible mistake. He will never take control of Ukraine, he told the British PA Media.
He adds that Vladimir Putin lost 25 percent of his land power due to, as he called, tiny gains.
– Russia has already strategically lost the war. NATO is stronger, and Finland and Sweden want to join. Although Putin could achieve some tactical successes in the coming weeks, he will achieve them with heavy losses. The Russian military machine grinds every day and advances, two, three, or five kilometers every day. They have their weaknesses, they are running out of people, projectiles of advanced technologies – said Radakin.
The assessments of the head of the British Armed Forces rely on the daily reports of the British intelligence service.
