Russia’s military is likely to begin an operational pause in Ukraine in the coming weeks, giving Kyiv a key opportunity to strike back, the MI6 chief has revealed.
“I think they’re about to run out of steam. I think our assessment is that the Russians will increasingly find it difficult to supply manpower material over the next few weeks,” Richard Moore, head of the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service, said.
“They will have to pause in some way, and that will give the Ukrainians opportunities to strike back.”
It comes as Russian forces pounded Ukraine’s second largest city Kharkiv and closed in on the country’s second largest power plant at Vuhlehirska, while the UK pledged another major arms package.
