UK Intelligence: The war is about to enter a new phase

Russian forces are massing in the south, but it is not clear whether they will be aimed at a new attack on Ukrainian territory or a Ukrainian counter-attack, according to the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom (UK).

The latest report says that long convoys of Russian military trucks, tanks and other weapons continue to move from Ukraine’s Donbas region to the southwest. It has also been reported that equipment is being transported from Russian-occupied Melitopol, Berdiansk, Mariupol and mainland Russia to Crimea via the Kerch Bridge.

“Battalion tactical groups (BTGs), consisting of 800-1,000 soldiers, have been deployed in Crimea and will almost certainly be used to support Russian troops in the Kherson region,” the statement said.

According to UK intelligence, Ukrainian forces are increasingly attacking bridges, ammunition depots and railway links in the southern regions of Ukraine.

“Russia’s war with Ukraine is about to enter a new phase, with the biggest battles shifting to a front line roughly 350 km long, stretching southwest from Zaporizhia to Kherson, parallel to the Dnieper River,” it continued.
