Russian factories refusing to repair military equipment damaged in Ukraine - intel.

Russian defense firms turn down orders to repair military equipment that was damaged in Russian invasion of Ukraine.

That’s according to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.

The conflict between the Russian military leadership and top management of defense factories is increasingly making it impossible to deploy new armored combat vehicles to the warzone, military intelligence reports.

In the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war, Ukraine’s defenders have already destroyed more than 40% of combat-ready tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and armored personnel carriers of Russian occupation forces representing their southern military district. The damaged equipment is supposed to be restored at special repair factories.

Before the damaged equipment is delivered to repair plants, it gets completely dismantled, while spare parts and units are sold or exchanged for alcohol. In some cases, only charred bodies of BMPs and tanks make it to repair factories.

At the same time, Ukrainian intelligence reports, chiefs of repair companies instructed their staff not to accept the incoming equipment. The reason behind their stance is the lack of components and insufficient funds paid by the military for the work already completed.

"The command tried to address the issue by deploying field repair brigades, which were supposed to operate in close proximity to the combat zones. However, corruption and greed for profit among the Russian military leadership brought the attempt to naught," intelligence analysts stressed.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, as of July 3, the Russian army lost in the war with Ukraine 35,970 servicemen, 1,584 tanks, 187 helicopters, 3,744 armored combat vehicles, 2,618 trucks and tankers, and much more military equipment.
