He said this in an interview The Guardian Vadim Skibitsky, Deputy Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense.
According to him, one of the “advantages” of the Russian army is its ability to quickly overturn troops and equipment. The Russian Federation practiced this during military exercises that preceded a full-scale war. In addition, units of Russian troops that retreated from the northern regions of Ukraine in March appeared in Donbas two weeks later.
“We know that they can return to Belarus in two to three weeks if they need to,” Skibitsky said.
Under the direct supervision of the Minister and Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, the preparation and equipping of the new corps of the Russian army began.
British intelligence indicatesthat Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko has become almost completely dependent on Russia and continues to support the actions of the Kremlin in the war against Ukraine.
At 4 am on February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a “special military operation” in the occupied Donbas. Russia launched missile strikes on the territory of Ukraine and launched a direct full-scale invasion in four directions. The armed forces of Ukraine are rebuffing the enemy, the blitzkrieg plan – to capture Kyiv in two or three days – failed, the Russian army retreated from the capital. The Russian military commits thousands of war crimes and crimes against humanity throughout Ukraine.
