Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Boris Johnson says the Russian army might soon run out of soldiers and weapons and lose its 'forward momentum' in Ukraine”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this week that he believes Russia will soon lose momentum in its war with Ukraine. 

Speaking to the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Johnson said that he thought Russian President Vladimir Putin's army was suffering heavy losses of soldiers and equipment just to gain ground in Ukraine's Donbas region.

Citing intelligence reports from the British defense forces, Johnson told the outlet that he believed the Russian onslaught in Ukraine would likely lose steam in the coming few months. 

"Our defense intelligence service believes, however, that in the next few months, Russia could come to a point at which there is no longer any forward momentum because it has exhausted its resources," he said, per Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

"Then we must help the Ukrainians to reverse the dynamic. I will argue for this at the Group of Seven summit," he said, per the outlet.
