Kyiv, The four-month-long fierce war in Ukraine is adversely affecting the morale of the armies of both sides and in many places soldiers are disobeying the orders of their officers or even revolting against them. Britain’s Defense Ministry said this on Sunday. Meanwhile, the NATO chief said the war could continue for “years”.
In an analysis released daily on the war, Britain’s Defense Ministry said, “Fighters of both sides are involved in a fierce battle in the Donbas and their morale is expected to change.”
,Russia’s morale likely to suffer more trouble,
“It is feared that soldiers have left the Ukrainian army in recent weeks,” the analysis said.
The analysis noted that “there are frequent incidents of refusal to obey orders by the entire unit of Russian troops and armed conflict between officers and soldiers”.
On the other hand, Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate has claimed to have intercepted phone calls of Russian soldiers, in which Russian soldiers are complaining about the current situation on the front, poor equipment and lack of troops etc. This report has been released by ‘Institute for the Study of War’.
NATO Secretary General said this
In an interview published on Sunday in Germany’s weekly magazine Bild am Sonntag, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that “no one knows” how long the war might last, adding that “we have to think about its continuation for years”. Have to be ready.”
Stoltenberg urged allies “not to cut back on aid to Ukraine, despite the high costs.” Not just for military aid, but also keeping in mind the rising prices of energy and food grains.
Russian company cuts gas supply to two countries
In recent days, Russian gas company ‘Gazprom’ has cut gas supplies to two of its biggest European customers in Europe, Germany and Italy. In the context of Italy, it is expected that the officials will brainstorm this week regarding the energy situation. The head of Italian energy company ENI said on Saturday that Italy could survive the winter with additional imports from other sources, but warned Italians should be prepared to use less gas if needed. .
Germany’s economic affairs minister said on Sunday that Germany would reduce its use of gas in power generation, taking into account the gas shortage following a shortfall in supplies from Russia. Germany is already busy storing gas from other sources in view of winter.
Economic Affairs Minister Robert Habeck said that Germany will try to fill the gas shortage by increasing the use of coal in electricity generation. “It is troublesome (as there is more pollution than coal) but it is necessary to reduce the consumption of gas,” he said.
The NATO chief said that “the price the whole world is paying for food and fuel is nothing compared to what the Ukrainian people are paying.”
