I'm not surprised actually. People forget/dont know that the best antidote to ATGM light infantry is a healthy dose of 150+mm HE which is found in abundance in Ukrainian battlefields. Mechanized forces are also vulnerable but in a much lower level.

It also reminds me that what gets publicity is different from battlefield realities. Like in 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war. Everybody was talking about the drones and about how much of a game changer they were and how Azeris basically won the war using mainly them. Well guess what, it turned out that the bulk of the fighting was still done by old schoold combat arms like infantry/armor/artillery with a specific SF maneuver through harsh terrain securing Shusha at the end of war.

Keep in mind the SOVIET military was designed around formation replacement. Send a formation to the front, use it until it's combat ineffective, then send up a fresh formation to replace it.
So the logistics necessary for prolonged support of formations engaged in sustained operations wasn't a consideration.

The "modern", and much smaller, Russian military may have decided that sustained operations is the way to go BUT they neglected to augment their Soviet era logistic support systems.
