VLADIMIR Putin has made his soldiers “mentally and physically exhausted” by forcing them to “true heel” in the Donbass region.
The UK Ministry of Defense has claimed that Vladimir Putin’s military is facing several damaging problems.
The problems are related to personnel, as soldiers cannot take scheduled breaks from intense combat conditions.
Citing a Russian report, the ministry said footage showed soldiers’ wives appealing directly to a local politician to allow their husbands to return home from the fighting in Ukraine.
They claimed they were “mentally and physically exhausted” having been on active combat duty since the invasion began.
The Defense Ministry said: “In late June, a Russian-language media agency based in Russia’s far eastern Lake Baikal region uploaded a video showing the wives of soldiers of 36 local politicians to allow their husbands to return home from service in Ukraine.
“One woman claimed that personnel from EMD’s 5th Separate Guards Tank Brigade were ‘mentally and physically exhausted’ from having been on active combat duty since the start of the ‘military special operation’ on February 24, 2022.
“The lack of planned breaks from intense combat conditions is most likely one of the most pernicious of the many personnel issues the Russian Ministry of Defense has faced with deployed forces.”

FBI and M15 issue rare joint alert for all iPhone and Android users
Directors of the top intelligence agencies representing the United States and the United Kingdom have appeared together to make a powerful statement.
“Today, for the first time, the heads of the FBI and MI5 share a public platform,” MI5 Director-General Ken McCallum told reporters from the podium at MI5 headquarters in London.
“We are doing this to send the clearest possible signal on a tremendous common challenge: China.”
The joint appearance denounced activities in China that could have a negative impact on the global economy.
Reporters pressed FBI Director Wray on China’s military strategy and asked if he thought the conflict in Ukraine had opened a window for China to invade Taiwan.
“I have no reason to believe that their interest in Taiwan has waned in any way,” Wray said.
According to the BBC, Taiwan is recognized by only 13 countries as a self-governing nation independent of China.
Tawain’s proximity to an unfriendly global superpower and his electrifying self-government are comparable to conditions before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
HUNDREDS of new recruits from Ukraine have started boot camp in the UK – ready to take on the Russians.
Britain has pledged to train 10,000 volunteers with no military experience over four months.
The first batch arrived last week and is already firing Kalashnikov cartridges at secret beauty marks.
Days before their departure, they narrowly escaped an air raid.
A Ukrainian army instructor, who asked not to be named, said: “We believe that the Russian military knew that we were preparing to come here.”
Troops from the UK’s 11th Security Force Assistance Brigade conduct a six-month basic infantry course in just a few weeks.
Putin mocked by Defense Ministry for using tanks “designed to be TRACTORS”.
VLADIMIR Putin was ridiculed by the Defense Ministry for using tanks “designed to be tractors” with only a machine gun for protection.
The Defense Ministry also dismissed Mad Vlad’s claim that Russia “hadn’t even started” in Ukraine.
The UK Ministry of Defense confirmed that Russia is deploying “worn and lightly armed” MT-LB personnel carriers that “have long been considered unsuitable for most front-line infantry transport roles”.
“It was originally designed in the 1950s as an artillery-hauling tractor, has very limited armor and is fitted with a machine gun only for protection,” according to the intelligence update reported in the Sunday Telegraph.
The outdated tank was designed as a Cold War “amphibious tractor” capable of carrying 10 soldiers, a driver and a gunner in its cramped and airless cargo bay.
