The Myanmar Military Has Difficulty Facing Resistance Groups Until They Decline to Ask Russia for Help

The Myanmar Military Has Difficulty Facing Resistance Groups Until They Decline to Ask Russia for Help. The Myanmar military is reportedly starting to have difficulty countering attacks from a number of resistance groups in the country. According to Bloomberg, the military junta was successfully repulsed by the people’s defense forces, or People’s Defense Force and ethnic armed organizations or IAO.

Myanmar news site The Irawadi also reported that the resistance groups had succeeded in seizing a number of defense assets belonging to the military junta. The assets include armored vehicles and machine guns. In the midst of this defeat, a number of representatives of the Myanmar military junta left for Russia to attend the 12th international meeting of high representatives on security issues.

A number of parties suspect that the Myanmar military junta’s move was to ask Moscow for help in fighting resistance groups. On the visit agenda, the Myanmar military junta was represented by the national security advisor. Admiral Maong’s junta. Maong himself is one of the figures close to the country led by Vladimir Putin.

He once received an international military cooperation award from the Russian Ministry of Defense. The closeness between Myanmar and Russia started to get stronger after the coup carried out by the military junta in 2021. These two countries also have relations between arms trade and military training. Even last September, Myanmar was isolated by ASEAN countries. However, the country led by the military junta actually received assistance from Russian fighter planes. Until now, the Russian government has not provided information that it will provide any assistance to support the junta in facing resistance groups.
