russia has problems providing ‘new’ wave of occupiers with basic equipment
russia did not expect a long and exhausting war in Ukraine. So, today they can’t provide basic outfit for the invaders.
This primarily concerns the individual gear for soldiers from the new wave of covert mobilization and is evidenced by invaders’ telephone conversations intercepted by the SSU.
‘What we’re wearing now – it’s just awful. It’s hard to call this equipment,’ complains the occupier, who had just been sent to war in Ukraine.
So, he asks her to borrow money to buy him means of protection: a chest rig, a helmet, a bulletproof vest.
As we can see, the cynicism of russian leadership knows no bounds: not only does it send its soldiers to Ukraine to certain death, it also wants them to buy outfit for their money.
