Russian Troops Strained By Elements

The British Defense Ministry said Sunday that Russian soldiers in Ukraine are suffering from an “age-old battle against the elements.”

The daily British intelligence report said that soldiers at a military affairs conference in Moscow complained earlier this month about being “wet from head to toe” for weeks on the front line and unable to light a fire for “a mug of tea” because that action risked alerting their positions to Ukrainian soldiers.

The Russian soldiers also complained about eating monotonous food in pervasive mud.

The soldiers’ discomfort, according to the report, is likely due to Russia’s inability to enforce basic field administration among its troops.
