Britain says tanks and military trucks are moving from eastern Ukraine to the southwest, and a 350-kilometer front is being formed. Britain has assessed these developments as a new stage of the war in Ukraine.
Most of the fighting is shifting along a roughly 350-kilometer front that runs southwest parallel to the Dnieper River from the Zaporizhia region to Kherson, British Defense Ministry security agencies said in a new daily report posted on Twitter.
The British Ministry of Defense has said that Russian forces have gathered in southern Ukraine. They prepare themselves for a major attack or to repel a possible counterattack.
According to the security agencies of the British Ministry of Defense, who report daily on the developments in the Russian battlefield in Ukraine, the convoy of Russian military trucks, tanks and artillery is still moving from the Donbas in eastern Ukraine to the southwest.
Tactical battalions of between 800 and 1,000 soldiers have been deployed in the Crimean peninsula and are likely to support Russian forces in Kherson. This region is located next to Crimea, which was annexed to Russia in 2014.
According to data from the British Ministry of Defense, Ukrainian armed forces have focused their attacks on bridges, ammunition depots and railway lines in the southern regions. Among these goals is the strategically important railway that connects Kherson to the Crimean Peninsula. Ukrainian attacks are carried out in shorter intervals.
Russia’s attack on Ukraine began on February 24 this year. Putin and other Kremlin officials describe the operation as a “special military operation.” Ukraine and Western countries talk about Russia’s “aggressive war”.
