Russian soldiers have to buy their own body armor

2:55 PM: Russian reservists are being sent to war against Ukraine with inadequate equipment, according to British reports. Teams of Russian reservists have been deployed to Ukraine over the past two weeks, the British Ministry of Defense wrote in its regular intelligence update on Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. “The average level of their personal gear is almost certainly lower than the already poor supply of previously deployed troops.”

Many reservists will likely need to purchase their own body armor, particularly a modern Type 6B45 body armor, which was originally supposed to be issued to general combat troops as part of the Russian Ratnik equipment program. Their prices have more than tripled in Russian online retail since April.

1:17 p.m: According to Russian information, the Ukrainian army has launched a new offensive to liberate the occupied Cherson region in the south of the country. However, different information was received on Saturday. Kirill Stremasov, deputy chief of the occupation administration, said there was only artillery fire. The Russian Defense Ministry in Moscow said the attack had been repelled. In contrast, Russian military bloggers reported on the ongoing bitter fighting.

The towns of Dudchani and Mylo are targets of the offensive to further reduce the area occupied by Russian troops on the northwest bank of the Dnipro.

As in previous incidents, the Ukrainian side did not provide any information about the attack.
