Two hundred marines from the Russian army refused to return to the war in Ukraine.

This was announced on Sunday, July 31, by the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Vadym Skibitsky.

According to the Main Intelligence Directorate, a significant problem arose in the 810th brigade of the Russian army, which delayed the process of restoring and combat coordination of its battalion tactical group.
"The main task of the 810 brigade is to conduct naval, assault offensive operations and simply assault operations. And accordingly, if there are no trained specialists, if there is no clear coordination of the unit, then the combat potential of this BTGr, and the entire brigade, will decrease," Skibitsky emphasized.
He noted that today the enemy troops lack combat potential and combat experience - those qualities that are critical for special forces.

Earlier, the British Ministry of Defense stated that the Kremlin is in despair, as the Russian army has lost tens of thousands of soldiers and uses Soviet-era weapons.
