Mutinous Russian troops CRY as they complain about lack of supplies and argue about orders to bomb civilian areas

Russian soldiers taking part in the invasion of Ukraine are in ‘complete disarray’, according to voice recordings obtained by a British intelligence company.

The intercepted radio messages indicate that troops are refusing to obey central command orders to shell Ukrainian towns and are complaining about running out of supplies of food and fuel.

The recordings are among around 24 hours of material obtained by intelligence firm ShadowBreak since the invasion of Ukraine began last week.

In one of the eavesdropped conversations, listened to by The Telegraph, a soldier reportedly sounds as though he is crying.

In another, a soldier is heard losing his temper when asking when food or fuel will arrive. He says: ‘We’ve been here for three days! When the hell is it going to be ready?’

A third message reveals a tense exchange in which the same soldier has to remind a colleague speaking from a command centre that they cannot use artillery on an area until civilians – who are labelled ‘the goods’ – have left.

ShadowBreak’s founder Samuel Cardillo, 26, told The Telegraph he had been sent the messages by amateurs listening in with antennas.

He said: ‘What we have found is that the Russian operatives are operating in complete disarray.

‘They have no clue where they are going and how to really communicate with each other properly.’

He added: ‘There were periods where we heard them [Russian soldiers] crying in combat, a period where they were insulting each other – obviously not a sign of great morale.’

Mr Cardillo said the some of the messages were also ‘proof of war crimes’ because they revealed ordered to fire missiles into urban areas.

Other video recordings are said to show Russian soldiers retreating back into Russia after becoming frustrated, whilst a text message sent by a soldier to his mother is alleged to have said: ‘The only thing I want right now is to kill myself.’
