The Ukrainian Armed Forces acknowledged today that they were facing a problem near Sievierodonetsk and asked for military help.

Sky News spoke to Ivanna Klympush Tsintzadze, a Ukrainian MP. She said that Ukraine was losing ground and in danger of being defeated in the eastern battles unless it received more weapons.

Her comments included that Russia outnumbered Ukraine’s military capabilities by 10 to 1.

According to Defense officials, four months of violence in Ukraine are affecting the morale of both sides. They have seen desertions and resistance against orders from officers, while NATO’s Chief warned that the war could continue for many years.

In its daily evaluation of war, Britain’s defense ministry reported that combat units from both sides were committed to intensive combat in Donbas. They are also likely to be experiencing inconsistent morale.

The assessment stated that the Ukrainen forces had likely been deserted in recent weeks but also added that the ‘Russian morale is highly probable to remain particularly troubled’.

The statement stated that “cases of entire Russian units refusing to obey orders, and armed standoffs between officers & their troops continue”

According to an Institute for the Study of War report, the Ukrainian Main Intelligence Directorate also released intercepted calls from Russian soldiers complaining about conditions on the frontline, inadequate equipment and a general lack of personnel.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated that no one knows how long this war will last in a Sunday interview. He said, “We must be ready for it to take place for many years.”

He also asked allies to not weaken Ukraine’s support, even though the cost is high for military assistance, as well as because of rising energy prices and other food commodity costs.

Gazprom has cut supplies to Italy and Germany in recent days. Energy officials in Italy are likely to meet this week to discuss the current situation. 

ENI, the head of Italy’s energy giant, said Saturday that Italy could make it through winter with extra gas from other sources. However, he cautioned that gas usage restrictions might need to be applied.
