The Institute for Military Studies adds that inventory shortages are forcing Ukraine to conserve ammunition and prioritize limited resources in key frontline sectors.

However, at the same time, the risk of Russian breakthroughs in other, less secure sectors is increasing. Despite the relatively slow pace of Russia’s advance, there is more instability on the front than meets the eye.

“Ukraine’s material restrictions also give Russian forces flexibility in conducting offensive operations, which may lead to opportunities for Russian forces to achieve significant operational success in the future,” the experts conclude.
