Ein weiteres Telefonat des Bundeskanzlers mit dem russischen Präsidenten scheint wenig erfolgreich; britische Nachrichtendienste melden zunehmende russische Logistikprobleme: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 2. Dezember 2022:
• Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz hat am (heutigen) Freitag, erneut, mit dem russischen Präsidenten Wladimir Putin telefoniert. Die Darstellung des Gespräches ist, wenig überraschend, sehr unterschiedlich.
Von Regierungssprecher Steffen Hebestreit:
Bundeskanzler Olaf Scholz hat heute Vormittag mit Russlands Präsidenten Wladimir Putin telefoniert. Das einstündige Gespräch war dem andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine und seinen Folgen gewidmet.
Der Bundeskanzler verurteilte insbesondere die russischen Luftangriffe gegen zivile Infrastruktur in der Ukraine und betonte die Entschlossenheit Deutschlands, die Ukraine in der Sicherstellung ihrer Verteidigungsfähigkeit gegen die russische Aggression zu unterstützen. Der Bundeskanzler drängte gegenüber dem russischen Präsidenten darauf, dass es so schnell wie möglich zu einer diplomatischen Lösung kommen müsse, zu der ein Rückzug russischer Truppen gehöre.
Der Bundeskanzler und der russische Präsident sprachen zudem über die globale Lebensmittellage, die infolge des russischen Angriffskrieges besonders angespannt ist. Der Bundeskanzler und Präsident Putin hoben die wichtige Rolle des kürzlich verlängerten Getreideabkommens unter der Ägide der Vereinten Nationen hervor.
Der Bundeskanzler und der russische Präsident vereinbarten weiterhin in Kontakt zu bleiben.
Auf Initiative der deutschen Seite hat Wladimir Putin ein Telefongespräch mit dem Bundeskanzler der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Olaf Scholz, geführt.
Es wurden verschiedene Aspekte der Situation in der Ukraine erörtert. Wladimir Putin erläuterte noch einmal ausführlich die prinzipielle Vorgehensweise Russlands bei der speziellen Militäroperation. Es wurde auf die zerstörerische Politik der westlichen Länder, einschließlich Deutschlands, hingewiesen, die das Regime in Kiew mit Waffen versorgen und das ukrainische Militär ausbilden. All dies sowie die umfassende politische und finanzielle Unterstützung für die Ukraine veranlasst Kiew, jegliche Verhandlungen strikt abzulehnen. Außerdem ermutigt sie radikale ukrainische Nationalisten, immer mehr blutige Verbrechen gegen die Zivilbevölkerung zu begehen.
Der russische Präsident forderte die deutsche Seite auf, ihr Vorgehen im Zusammenhang mit den Ereignissen in der Ukraine zu überdenken.
Es wurde festgestellt, dass die russischen Streitkräfte seit langem davon abgesehen haben, bestimmte Ziele in der Ukraine anzugreifen, dass solche Maßnahmen nun aber zu einer erzwungenen und unvermeidlichen Reaktion auf die provokativen Angriffe Kiews auf die russische zivile Infrastruktur, einschließlich der Krimbrücke und der Energieanlagen, geworden sind.
Dazu gehört auch der Terroranschlag auf die Nord-Stream- und Nord-Stream-2-Pipelines, dessen Umstände transparent und unter Einbeziehung der zuständigen russischen Behörden untersucht werden müssen.
Sie sprachen auch über die Umsetzung der Vereinbarungen des Istanbuler „Pakets“ vom 22. Juli über den Abtransport ukrainischen Getreides aus den Schwarzmeerhäfen und die Freigabe der Ausfuhr von Lebensmitteln und Düngemitteln aus Russland. Es wurde betont, dass das „Getreideabkommen“ in gutem Glauben umgesetzt werden muss, was die Beseitigung aller Hindernisse für russische Lieferungen bedeutet.

• Das britische Intel Update:
Russia’s withdrawal from the west bank of the Dnipro River last month has provided the Ukrainian Armed Forces with opportunities to strike additional Russian logistics nodes and lines of communication.
This threat has highly likely prompted Russian logisticians to relocate supply nodes, including rail transfer points, further south and east.
Russian logistics units will need to conduct extra labour-intensive loading and unloading from rail to road transport. Road moves will subsequently still be vulnerable to Ukrainian artillery as they move on to supply Russian forward defensive positions.
Russia’s shortage of munitions (exacerbated by these logistics challenges) is likely one of the main factors currently limiting Russia’s potential to restart effective, large scale offensive ground operations.
