Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 25. Januar 2023 – mit einer britischen Bewertung der modernsten russischen Kampfpanzer:
• Das britische Intel Update:
As previously reported, Russia has worked to prepare a small number of T-14 Armata main battle tanks for the type’s first operational deployment in Ukraine.
However, in recent months, deployed Russian forces were reluctant to accept the first tranche of T-14 allocated to them because the vehicles were in such poor condition.
It is unclear exactly what aspects of the vehicles prompted this reaction, but within the last three years, Russian officials have publicly described problems with the T-14’s engine and thermal imaging systems.
In 2021, Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu described the planned production run for 2022 as only an “experimental-industrial” batch. Therefore, it is unlikely that any deployed T-14 tanks will have met the usual standards for new equipment to be deemed operational.

During the day, the enemy launched 4x missile and 26x air strikes, and conducted more than 100x MLRS attacks.
The threat of russian air and missile attacks remains high across Ukraine.

Ukrainian Defense Forces repelled attacks in the vicinities of Bilohorivka (Luhansk oblast); Rozdolivka, Krasna Hora, Bakhmut, Novobakhmutivka, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, and Charivne (Donetsk oblast).

russia is recruiting imprisoned Ukrainian citizens who were forcibly taken to russian prisons.

The majority of Ukrainian prisoners are not satisfied with their forced transfer to russia and with the contemptuous attitude of russian prisoners towards them. People who are serving sentences for serious criminal offenses are most actively called to participate in the war against Ukraine.

During the past 24 hours, Ukrainian Air Force delivered 8x air strikes on enemy concentration areas, and 3x air strikes against russian anti-aircraft missile systems.
