Russia's 120 battalions in Ukraine have sustained heavy losses reducing each Battalion's strength to less than half of its original number. The critical question is whether either side can cope with the losses sustained.

Summary

This article written by Dan Sabbagh for The Guardian notes the following:
  • Russia now has 120 battalions inside Ukraine, 40 around Sievierodonetsk, showing what's needed for Russia to make progress.
  • Ukraine's goal is to hold up the Russians, inflict losses and reduce their morale.

President Zelensky stated that stalemate was not an option for Ukraine but conceded that they needed large amounts of western weaponry.
