Russia is gaining the upper hand militarily in Ukraine due to the increase in troop numbers and material support from countries like North Korea and China. Kyiv will need significant military assistance from the West to turn the situation on the frontlines around.

This was stated by the head of Norwegian military intelligence, Nils Andreas Stensønes, as reported by BR24.

"In this war, Russia is currently in a stronger position than a year ago and is preparing to gain an advantage," he said.

The head of intelligence emphasized that Moscow can mobilize "approximately three times more troops" than Ukraine.

"Russia is adapting "better than expected" to sanctions, and its industry is capable of producing enough "ammunition, combat vehicles, drones, and missiles," he stressed.

According to Stensnes, Russia receives military support from Iran, Belarus, and North Korea. Based on his conclusions, China supplies not weapons, but "machinery, vehicles, electronics, and spare parts" that are useful for the Russian defense industry.
