Russian troops did not achieve breakthrough in the Donbass and are transferring forces to reinforce the Zaporozhye direction.
Russia is correcting the operational plan of the offensive in the Donbass after failures and has identified the Zaporozhye direction as a vulnerable sector of the front. This is stated in the report of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain, published on August 1.
“Over the past four days, Russia continued to launch tactical attacks in the Bakhmut direction north-east of Donetsk, but moved slowly,” British intelligence said. .
It is noted that according to the information of the Ukrainian authorities, the Russian army is moving significant forces from the north of Donbass to the south of Ukraine.
“Russia is probably adjusting the operational plan of its offensive in the Donbass after how she failed to achieve a decisive operational breakthrough in accordance with the plan that she had been following since April. Most likely, she identified the Zaporozhye Front as a vulnerable area in need of strengthening,” the British military emphasized.
