It is noted that russia plans to increase the budget for the production of military equipment, but this will not solve the problem of replenishment.
The russian army has concentrated its efforts around Severodonetsk. In addition, she managed to move a little near Kharkiv.
This was reported by the British Ministry of Defense with reference to intelligence data.
“Russia’s main operational effort remains the attack on Severodonetsk in the Donbas. Its western group of troops has probably made some progress in the Kharkiv direction for the first time in weeks”, – the British Defense Ministry said.
However, despite russia’s increased funding for military spending, putin’s military will have problems replenishing its equipment due to Western sanctions and a lack of experience in some areas.
“On June 10, the first deputy head of the military-industrial commission of russia predicted that public spending on the army will increase by 600-700 billion rubles, which could mean an increase in funding by about 20%”, – said in a statement.
It should be noted that the funding will allow the country’s defense industry to slowly mobilize in order to meet the needs arising from the war against Ukraine.
“However, many of these needs may be met, in part by sanctions and a lack of experience. The production of high-quality optics and advanced electronics in russia is likely to be difficult, and could undermine efforts to replace equipment lost in Ukraine”, – he said. noted in the intelligence.
