The Russian command can transfer the troops withdrawn from Kherson to the Bakhmut direction. This is what analysts from the British foreign intelligence say. The British intelligence report indicates that such a redeployment will significantly strengthen the Russian grouping of troops in the Donbass. It is noted that just the Bakhmut direction is assessed as the main one for the RF Armed Forces, since Russia is still trying to reach the borders of the Donetsk region.
Also, British intelligence officers report that now the Russian command pays a lot of attention to building defensive lines, even in the rear. Fortifications are being built in the LDNR (the so-called “Wagner Line”), as well as on the border of Crimea. This indicates that the command of the RF Armed Forces does not exclude new major breakthroughs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the front line.
It is worth noting that the West continues to supply Ukraine with weapons, as well as providing intelligence information. In addition, more and more Ukrainian military personnel are being trained by NATO instructors at the training grounds of the bloc countries. And this creates serious problems for the Russian forces.
