Russian forces started to lose a significant amount of their military equipment, as the Ukrainian counteroffensive is underway. Russians are also experiencing a shortage of mechanics for repairs, as the National Resistance Center of Ukraine reports.

"The invaders are preparing to replenish their losses by decommissioning old weapons. The Russians also lack mechanics who can repair damaged or outdated vehicles," the report says.

According to the center, Russians are forcibly engaging specialists in the repair and maintenance of military equipment, in particular, in the temporarily occupied Crimean Peninsula. The occupiers are selecting car mechanics from local service stations.
