Units transferred from Kherson and mobilized will be used to attack Donetsk region and hold Luhansk region.
Russian troops are beginning to strengthen their positions in the occupied territories with personnel transferred from the Kherson region, as well as mobilized servicemen. This was reported by the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) in a report on November 19.
We are talking about the occupied Donetsk region and Luhansk region, as well as the eastern part of the Zaporizhzhia region.
According to military analysts, Russian forces will likely continue to use mobilized and redeployed servicemen to resume offensive operations in Donetsk region and hold defensive positions in Luhansk region.
In addition, the Russian army is trying to disperse forces by deploying separate units in the direction of Gulyaipol in the east of the Zaporizhzhia region.
“Russia is also likely to bring in additional mobilized forces in the coming weeks, given that mobilized units of the Russian 2nd Motorized Rifle Division of the 1st Tank Army have completed training in the Brest region of Belarus,” the ISW emphasized.
The Institute’s experts added that the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue their counteroffensive on the Svatove-Kremenna line in the Luhansk region, in particular, fierce fighting continues in the Kuzemivka area.
In Donetsk region, Russian troops continue their attacks in the area of Bakhmut, Avdiivka and west of Donetsk, despite significant losses.
Earlier, the General Staff of the Armed Forces reported that the Russian command plans to redeploy individual units withdrawn during the retreat from the Kherson region to continue hostilities in Donbas.
