War in Ukraine


Meanwhile, a defence think-tank has described how the Russian army is learning from Ukraine’s tactics, meaning Ukraine has been losing some of its battlefield advantage. Russia’s troops were “actively learning” from Ukrainian forces during its counteroffensive – in a “concerning trend” that could significantly improve Russia‘s capabilities, a report added. The Royal United Services Institute (Rusi) said that the Russia army was adapting its methods, including increasing the density of minefields, dispersing its electronic warfare systems rather than concentrating them on major platforms, and increasing the use of laser-guided shells and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over indiscriminate shelling, as was favoured in the Soviet era, but which has meant Russia is running out of ammunition.
