Degraded Ukrainian military logistics – Moscow – RT Russia and the former Soviet Union


The recent missile barrage has made it much more difficult for kyiv to supply and rotate troops, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

Ukraine’s military has suffered a serious degradation of its capabilities due to recent strikes by Moscow forces, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

“The transport of manpower and materials to the front lines via the railways has been significantly hampered. Production at Ukrainian military industrial facilities was also disrupted,” the statement said, describing the results of the barrage of long-range missiles launched on Monday.

Meanwhile, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu signaled that precision strikes were continuing on key targets, affecting Ukraine’s military potential. Speaking at a working meeting on Tuesday, the minister also said that over the past two weeks Russian forces destroyed 74 tanks, 235 other armored vehicles, two HIMARS multiple rocket launchers and 268 armed cars.

Ukraine’s air force reported detecting 50 missiles launched by Russian planes on Monday and claimed to have intercepted 44 of them. Prime Minister Denis Shmigal said Russia had achieved 18 targets, mostly related to the energy sector, in ten regions of the country. Ukraine’s railway monopoly confirmed that some of its lines had suffered a power outage and it had to deploy emergency diesel locomotives in response.


Russia changed its military tactics in Ukraine last month and began launching attacks on energy infrastructure. President Vladimir Putin described the move as a response to Ukrainian sabotage attacks on Russian energy facilities, including a nuclear power plant and a gas pipeline to Türkiye.

The decision was announced days after a truck bomb hit the strategic Crimean bridge, killing three civilians and damaging the structure. Russian investigators pinned the attack on Ukraine’s military intelligence service.

Attacks on sites such as power stations and distribution substations caused power outages in many parts of Ukraine, including the capital Kyiv. Ukraine introduced electricity rationing and blackouts to limit the load.
