British Challenger Tank Destroyed in Ukraine + Heavy Losses Amid Failing Offensive

Sep 6, 2023



Update on the conflict in Ukraine for September 6, 2023


- Western media is attempting to depict small gains in Russia's security zone as "breaching the first defensive line;"


- Ukraine's offensive has culminated, the last of its brigades prepared for the offensive are now engaged and suffering heavy losses;


- Among these losses is a confirmed loss of a British Challenger 2 tank;


- The main obstacle for Ukraine is its Western sponsors' limited military industrial output and their inability to sufficiently expand it in the short, intermediate, or even long-term;
