Andriy Zahorodniuk: The Russian army has many weak points

Share this article

Former Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Andriy Zahorodniuk, analyzed the weakest points of the Russian occupying army.

"Any system, and an army is a system, is only as strong as its weakest part. Therefore, we should look at where the strong parts of the armies are, which part of their capabilities is sufficiently powerful, and which is not," he said on Radio NV.

According to Zahorodniuk's assessment, Russia has mobilization and economic resources, which are not the weakest parts of its army.

"Their weakest part is the ability to transform these resources into equipment. They have problems with manufacturing a large amount of equipment. They would like to have many times more equipment and ammunition, but they cannot achieve that. We are essentially seeing the limit of this resource very clearly," he explained.

The former minister also pointed out that the Russian army is stretched along the front line, and its "absolute capacity" is at its limit. In particular, "where we break through the front, we see that they are not able to hold these areas any further." Zahorodniuk recalled that during the June uprising of the Wagner Group, the militants traveled "through half of the European part of Russia," and almost no one tried to stop them.

"Practically, there's no one there. The Russian army is a big colossus that is extremely inefficient, which is all along our front line, stretched across the entire front line. So as soon as we break through certain sections, we have very good prospects for development in those directions. Yes, it's visible. We have absolute prospects for victory, that's absolutely certain," he concluded
