Armed Forces of Ukraine, most likely, will be able to launch a counteroffensive in the Izyum direction. The Russian Federation continues to transfer troops from the northern part of the Donetsk region to support defensive positions in southern Ukraine, which will weaken the forces of the occupiers in the direction of Slavyansk.

About it declared at the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

The Russian Federation continues to transfer troops from the northern part of the Donetsk region to support defensive positions in southern Ukraine and is likely to suspend the Slavic campaign for now, analysts at the Institute say. The ISW quoted the words of the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Vadim Skibitsky, who reported that two weeks ago, Russian troops withdrew tactical groups of the Airborne Forces from the Donetsk region.

“The UK Department of Defense also noted that Russian forces have likely identified the Zaporizhia region as a vulnerable front in need of reinforcement, and the Ukrainian General Staff reported that Russian forces are regrouping in the Zaporizhia region. Social media footage shows Russian troops in recent weeks they are transferring equipment and personnel both to Zaporozhye and Kherson regions,” the Institute added.

According to experts, a partial withdrawal of Russian troops from the northern part of the Donetsk region will deprive the enemy forces of the necessary combat power in the Slavyansk region.

The withdrawal is likely to create an opportunity for Ukrainian forces to launch a counter-offensive in the Izyum direction, just as the Russian seizure of the Luhansk region allowed Ukraine to create conditions for a counter-offensive in the Kherson region. The redeployment of Russian troops to the Zaporozhye region also suggests that Ukrainian counter-offensives are not limited to the Kherson region and are likely to take place along the entire southern axis.
