What happened? The russian army has problems with medical provision, which contributes to a declining state of morale and a lack of willingness to advance.

Details. “Medical provision for russian combat troops in Ukraine is probably growing worse. Some newly mobilised russian reservists have been ordered to source their own combat first aid supplies, with the advice that female sanitary products are a cost-effective solution,” the report says.

It is noted that russians' medical training and first-aid awareness are likely poor.

Some russian troops have obtained their own modern, Western-style combat tourniquets but have stowed them on their equipment using cable-ties, instead of the velcro. Experts believe that this may be due to the fact that such equipment is scarce and liable to be pilfered.

“This is almost certain to hamper or render impossible the timely application of tourniquet care in case of catastrophic bleeding on the battlefield,” the intelligence adds.

The report notes that the lack of confidence of the russian troops in sufficient medical provision is “almost certainly contributing to a declining state of morale and a lack of willingness to undertake offensive operations in many units in Ukraine.”
