Norwegian Secret Service – The Russian army gains the upper hand in the war

Date:

The Russian army is currently gaining the upper hand in the war in Ukraine. The Norwegian secret service has now reported this. Larger troop reserves and material support from countries such as China and Norway would contribute to this.

The Ukrainian army will need “substantial” Western military assistance to possibly turn the situation around, military intelligence chief Nils Andreas Stensönes said on Monday. “In this war, Russia is currently in a stronger position than a year ago and is gaining an advantage.” The Kremlin can mobilize “about three times as many troops as Ukraine,” Stensönes said. The country is adapting ‘better than expected’ to the sanctions and the industry is able to produce sufficient ‘ammunition, combat vehicles, drones and missiles’.

Support from Iran, Belarus and North Korea
According to Stensönes, the Russian army receives support from Iran, Belarus and North Korea. According to his findings, China does not supply weapons, but “machines, vehicles, electronics and spare parts” useful to Russia’s defense industry.

The Norwegian government wants to supply Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets. Europe must “be prepared to take on more responsibility to ensure its own security and that of its allies.” Since the Russian attack on Ukraine almost two years ago, the US government has been the biggest supporter. However, a bill for additional billions in aid is currently stuck in Congress.

Ukraine wants to produce drones
In Ukraine itself, thousands of drones with longer range will be produced this year, Digitalization Minister Mykhailo Fedorov said. Currently, up to ten companies can produce drones that can reach targets in Moscow and St. Petersburg. “The long-range kamikaze drone category is growing. Two years ago, this category didn’t even exist.”
