The ISW notes that Russia continues to transfer troops from the northern part of the Donetsk region to support defensive positions in southern Ukraine and may suspend the Slavic campaign.

Institute analysts believe that the withdrawal of part of the Russian troops from the northern part of the Donetsk region will deprive them of the necessary combat power near Slavyansk.

Experts drew a parallel with the situation when Russian troops ignored the fronts of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions during offensive operations in the Luhansk region.

“The withdrawal is likely to create an opportunity for Ukrainian troops to launch a counteroffensive in the Izyum direction, just as the Russian seizure of the Luhansk region allowed Ukraine to create the conditions for a counteroffensive in the Kherson region,” ISW predicts.

Experts noted that 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.
