Ukraine’s military might ‘almost exhausted’, claims Russia’s Defence Minister

TAGS

In a shocking revelation that’s sure to raise eyebrows worldwide, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu declared on Tuesday that Ukraine’s military firepower is on the brink of depletion! Addressing a high-profile security conference in Moscow, Shoigu boldly stated, “Ukraine’s armed forces, even with the West’s extensive backing, are failing to deliver.”

Amidst the backdrop of Ukraine’s tenacious counter-offensive started in June to reclaim territories, the Russian Defence Minister suggested that Kyiv’s military resources are “almost tapped out.” The undertones were clear: Western weapons, regardless of their touted prowess, aren’t matching up to Russian armaments on the battlefield. Shoigu drove home his point, stressing there’s “nothing unique” about these Western arsenals.

The Moscow Conference on International Security, where Shoigu made these startling remarks, was a grand affair with invitations extended to representatives from over a whopping 100 nations. But, in a move seen by many as a geopolitical snub, Western countries found themselves conspicuously left off the guest list.
