Meatgrinder: Russian Tactics in the Second Year of Its Invasion of Ukraine is a Special Report released by the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies. The report covers a wide range of conflict topics, including the Russian Federation’s electronic warfare tactics. The report’s authors are Jack Watling and Nick Reynolds.

The scale of Russian losses in 2022, combined with the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation confronting NATO systems they had not previously contended with, has caused a significant deviation in Russian operations from the country’s doctrine. This report outlines how Russian forces have adapted their tactics in the Ukrainian conflict and the challenges this has created for the Ukrainian military that must be overcome. The report examines Russian military adaptation by combat function.
