Military decrees considered by The Wall Street Journal this week revealed that a whole bunch of Russian troopers have escaped the combating in Ukraine or refused to participate.

Western intelligence companies say there may be broad proof of chaos and dysfunction amongst Russian forces in Ukraine.

In May, a senior US protection official advised reporters that Russian “mid-grade officers at various levels, even up to the battalion level have either refused to obey orders or are not obeying them with the same measure of alacrity that you would expect an officer to obey”.

Also this week, a group of Russian separatist soldiers revolted after their commanders left them on the frontline “in hunger and cold”.

He said: “Now our military has pushed them back. They are really suffering huge losses.

“As soon as we have enough Western long-range weapons, we will push their artillery away from our positions.

“And then, believe me, the Russian infantry, they will just run.”

The latest intelligence briefing from the British Ministry of Defence claims that Russian forces have combined airstrikes and massed artillery fires to bring its “overwhelming” firepower to bear in Donbas.
