The effect of sanctions is felt in Russian weapons


Russia has fired several missiles into Ukraine, “the precision guided weapons have run out and they are struggling to replace them,” the senior official told reporters anonymously.

“We believe that sanctions and export restrictions, especially on electronic components, will have an impact on the Russian defense industry,” he told a news conference.

That is why, he explained, large cities, such as Mariupol or Kharkiv, are hit by bombs that do not know the difference between a military target and an apartment building.

In addition, Russian forces continue to suffer from supply and regulatory problems, including officials who “refuse to move forward in obedience to orders,” he said.

A senior U.S. Defense Department official has pointed out that Russia’s action in the south of the country has “not progressed in recent days” in the face of stubborn Ukrainian opposition.

In Donbass, he said, “there has been no significant progress by the Russians,” especially explaining the failure of Russian forces to coordinate their air strikes and their maneuvers on the ground. The ground forces mud and tanks to remain on sidewalks.

And, “they did not solve all the logistics and maintenance issues,” he said. “We still see them fighting to replenish their forces.”
