They noted the heavy losses of Russian troops.
Covert mobilization continues in Russia, but the morale of the mobilized military is at a low level.
Andrey Yusov, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, spoke about this on the air of an information telethon. “If we talk about the situation in the army, the fact that covert mobilization in Russia continues and preparations are underway for further mobilization measures indicates that even the mobilization carried out is not enough, the army is not effective, is not properly provided, trained, and This is evidenced by huge losses on the battlefield,” he said.
He added that intelligence has a large number of audio interceptions of Russian invaders from the front line, which indicate a low morale. Yusov noted that only a part of them is made public.
“They see the work of their own” detachments, see the incompetence of their command and they see huge losses of people around them. There is definitely no ideological component or trust in the propaganda of Solovyov and Skabeeva, “said the representative of the GUR, adding that most of they would have tried to escape if it were not for the detachments.
