Russia committed over 120 battalion tactical groups in Ukraine, approximately 65% of its entire ground combat strength. The British Ministry of Defense reports about such data of the British intelligence on Twitter.
"At the start of the conflict, Russia committed over 120 battalion tactical groups, approximately 65% of its entire ground combat strength," the statement reads.
According to the British Defense Ministry, it is possible that more than a quarter of these units are currently incapacitated.
"Some of Russia's most elite units, including the VDV Airborne Forces, have suffered the highest levels of attrition. It will probably take years for Russia to reconstitute these forces,” the British intelligence added.
