Quotes from the news wire:
Some of the logistical problems they had were partly because they never really managed to take major railway hubs at all, frankly, in the whole country, and because the Russian motorized ground forces rely on the railways to move all of their troops, their hardware and their tanks. Because they never really managed to control those hubs, they never really managed to push particularly far into Ukrainian territory, and it meant that they then had to rely on off-road capabilities.
Then it meant that it was tricky to tow the tanks back to Russia for repairs, because they were far away, and so a lot of them were abandoned. Lots of their equipment started breaking because the tanks can only take so much moving around, and, of course, you have the very well-documented resistance from local Ukrainians, who didn't take too well to being occupied.
We're still talking about huge amounts of territory -- Ukraine is massive -- even if they are just focusing on the east and the south. Some of the claims from senior commanders that they're going to be establishing a land corridor across the south of Ukraine, it's still a huge task, the fact that they've not been able to take major cities and major rail hubs before is still a problem. I think that's going to persist.
