London: The UK Defence Ministry on Tuesday claimed that Russia’s military is “now significantly weaker, both materially and conceptually”, as a result of its invasion of Ukraine.

The UK government said that the Russia’s defence budget got almost two-fold between 2005 and 2018.

“Russia’s defence budget approximately doubled between 2005 and 2018, with investment in several high-end air, land and sea capabilities. From 2008 this underpinned the expansive military modernisation programme New Look,” the UK ministry tweeted.

“However, the modernisation of its physical equipment has not enabled Russia to dominate Ukraine. Failures both in strategic planning and operational execution have left it unable to translate numerical strength into decisive advantage,” it said.

The UK claimed that the ability of Russia to deploy conventional military force will be impacted.

“Russia’s military is now significantly weaker, both materially and conceptually, as a result of its invasion of Ukraine. Recovery from this will be exacerbated by sanctions. This will have a lasting impact on Russia’s ability to deploy conventional military force,” it said.
