Russian President Vladimir Putinmonitoring of events in the village Ukraine from his “lair in the Urals” “enraged” and “ignited” that the invasion of his troops in a smaller country to the south did not go more smoothly, says European Union an official who said he had read a report by Ukrainian intelligence.
Riho Teras, former head of the Estonian defense and member of the European Parliament, spoke in detail about the content of the documents in Saturday’s chain on Twitter.
Fox News independently did not confirm the authenticity of the intelligence report that Terras included in his Twitter post.
RUSSIA ATTENTION TO UKRAINE: UPDATES
In the Urals, Putin is accompanied by Russian oligarchs, “so no one will run away,” Terras said in Russian-language documents.
“He thought the whole war would be easy and everything would be done in 1-4 days,” Terrace wrote.
Instead, the Ukrainian military – and civilians armed with weapons and Molotov cocktails – have been working since Thursday to repel Russian forces that have entered Ukraine from several sides.
Terras claims that the intelligence report says that the Russian forces did not have an adequate tactical plan, and they themselves were in the supply of supplies – bringing enough missiles for only three or four days and thus “using them sparingly.”
Russians’ hopes of getting more weapons and ammunition are limited, Terrace said.

“They have no raw materials,” he wrote. “What used to come mainly from Slovenia, Finland and Germany has now been cut off” due to Western sanctions.
If the Ukrainians are able to fight off the Russians within 10 days, it is likely to force Moscow to start negotiations to end the conflict, because “they have no money, no weapons, no resources,” writes Terrace.
Russia’s plan is also to sow panic among Ukrainian women and children to advance their efforts against the Ukrainian government, the official wrote.
When Russia’s attack lasted until Sunday morning, it turned out that Russia was targeting energy resources in Ukraine, according to reports, according to reports, damaged the gas pipeline in Kharkov and the civilian oil depot south of Kiev.
