Russia’s army needs 10 years to rebuild from Ukraine and NATO can take advantage | Defence in Depth

Telegraph, 26 May 2023

They sent Kyiv 5,000 helmets.

Fast forward a year, and Germany has pledged tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, drones, guns, shells - enough heavy metal to fill Moscow’s Red Square.

In one short year, other countries also transformed from ugly, kit-hogging ducklings into beautiful weapon-gifting swans.

Defence chiefs realised that Russia’s land army was being written down in Ukraine, with varying estimates asserting a minimum of 10-year period for Russia to rebuild its forces.
