Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 2. Februar 2023

Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 2. Februar 2023:

• Das britische Intel Update:

Russia’s role as a reliable arms exporter is highly likely being undermined by its invasion of Ukraine and international sanctions.
Even before the invasion, Russia’s share of the international arms market was declining. Now, when faced with conflicting demands, Russia will almost certainly prioritise deploying newly produced weapons with its own forces in Ukraine over supplying export partners.
A shortage of components is likely affecting the production of equipment for export, such as armoured vehicles, attack helicopters, and air defence systems.
In addition, Russia’s ability to sustain support services for existing export contracts, such as providing spare parts and maintenance, is likely to be seriously disrupted for at least the next three to five years.
