“Russia’s war on Ukraine is about to enter a new phase, with the heaviest fighting shifting to a roughly 350km front line stretching southwest from near Zaporizhzhya to Kherson, paralleling the Dnieper River.”
According to British intelligence, there is information about the transfer of equipment from Russian-occupied Melitopol, Berdiansk, Mariupol and the Russian mainland via the Kerch bridge to Crimea.
“Battalion tactical groups (BTG), which comprise between 800 and 1,000 troops, have been deployed to Crimea and would almost certainly be used to support Russian troops in the Kherson region.”
According to British intelligence, Ukrainian forces are concentrating their strikes on bridges, ammunition depots and railway tracks, which are increasingly being attacked in the southern regions of Ukraine. The targets include a strategically important railway line linking Kherson with Russian-occupied Crimea to try to affect Russia’s ability to resupply.
