‘This Has Never Happened Before’: Major Russian Army’s Failure In Ukraine

The military expert revealed the details.

The number of Russian troops in Ukraine over the past 2 years has been growing tirelessly even taking into account the huge losses, but in February the mechanism failed for the first time.

As of the beginning of February, the grouping of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine amounted to more than 470,000 people. As of the end of February, this number had dropped to almost 466,000.

The fall in the number of Russian troops is an important marker: for the first time in a long time, the number of Russian troops in Ukraine fell, not increased.

This is reported by military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko.

He notes that the key idea of the calculations is that the number of Russian troops in Ukraine has been growing tirelessly over the past two years, even taking into account the huge losses. Almost every month it did not decrease, but increased by +5,000 +10,000 +20,000.

The number of Russian soldiers grew due to not only regular compensation for losses, but also additional sending of manpower to the combat zone.

For a long time in numerical terms, this is the first case of such a reduction, the expert notes.

"There is also a reduction of vehicles, especially the AFV and artillery systems. During the month, The Russian occupation forces lost 200 AFVs and almost 600 artillery systems! I note that this all happens both with a working defence industry and constant supplies of weapons, and with mobilization processes that promptly resolve the issue of human losses," Kovalenko writes.

According to him, some mechanisms in this well-established system of compensation for losses and capacity building began to fail, and February 2024 will be the first month in a long time when the Russian military command shows negative indicators.
