Lack of resources hinders Russia’s planned offensive: Ukrainian intelligence

According to a senior military intelligence officer, Russia lacks the necessary means to launch a significant offensive around the anniversary of the full-scale invasion on February 24, Kyiv Post wrote in a recent report.

Andriy Chernyak, a spokesperson of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate, asserted that rumors and speculations of an impending large-scale onslaught were unfounded.

Chernyak stated that Russia was now “trying to uncover gaps in our defense,” but he did not dispute that Moscow had plans to conduct an offensive in the upcoming weeks.

“However, according to our intelligence, Russian leadership lacks the resources for extensive offensive activities,” he stressed.
