According to British intelligence experts, Russian invasion troops in Ukraine are under pressure from the increasing number of explosions behind their own lines in the south of the country. This emerges from the Ministry of Defense’s daily intelligence update on the war in Ukraine in London.
While neither side has made any frontline advances in the Kherson region, British experts say “the increasing frequency of explosions behind Russian lines is likely to put pressure on Russian logistics and air bases in the south”.
Overall, there have been only minimal changes to the front lines in the past week. This is unlikely to change next week. According to London, who will take the military initiative in the coming weeks will depend on who can produce “convincing and determined forces for offensive operations”.
Since the start of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine in late February, the British government has regularly published intelligence on its progress. Moscow accuses London of a targeted disinformation campaign.
