Russian generals accuse each other of a failed invasion Ukraine because of concerns about what will happen if the war turns into a retreat, the UK minister said.

Defense Minister Ben Wallace has said that Vladimir Putin’s top officers are “turning into themselves” because they fear they will be accused of a war that has turned into a “swamp.”

Ukraine and its Western allies say Russian forces have been slowly advancing on their revised goal of capturing the east and south of the country, but the bombing has affected more and more civilians.

Wallace, who oversaw military exercises with the British armed forces in Finland, said the generals were approaching the front line and “shouting and shouting at the people.” according to The Times.

Asked whether General Valery Gerasimov, Russia’s chief of staff, had been sent to Ukraine to act as a “boy”, he said: “They are all in the fall.” Be careful if you single-handedly control something in the Russian system, because it can be short-lived.

“There is a tension point in the system. As far as the former KGB officer is respected [Putin] for being a strong leader, the Russian General Staff will be made scapegoats for his disorder ”.

In an interview with The News Desk on TalkTV, Admiral Sir Tony Radakin, the UK’s chief of staff, said there was “incredible pressure” in Russia to achieve the campaign.

However, after 10 weeks of fighting, he said the speed with which Moscow troops used missiles and other weapons meant that Putin was involved in a “logistics war” to secure their supplies.

“Potentially he has problems, because the speed of the costs and the brutality of the battle are completely different from those he felt on February 24,” – added Admiral Radakin.

“We are talking about serious strikes on their armed forces. We actually withdrew 25% of their forces – either by killing people or by damaging their battalion tactical groups. “

Boris Johnson said Britain would “continue to intensify” its efforts to help Ukraine as long as help is needed.

Speaking at a fundraiser hosted by the Ukrainian embassy in London on Thursday, the prime minister said the Russians were facing a “difficult move” and questioned whether the “hasty manner” in which Putin sought victory would succeed.

“I think we are now seeing incredible pressure – political and military pressure – to win,” he said.

“It will be a tough fight. And it will be a tough fight. It will be a difficult move.

“You see a tactical struggle where he tries to rush to a tactical victory and then he will achieve that with his people.”

He went on to say that “whatever Putin tries to do to the people of Ukraine … he will never break their spirit.”

Moscow calls its actions a “special military operation” to disarm Ukraine and rid it of anti-Russian nationalism instigated by the West.

Ukraine and the West claim that Russia has started an unprovoked aggressive war.
