Ukraine war set to enter ‘new phase’ as Russian forces preparing for possible attack

According to British military intelligence chiefs, the war in Ukraine will enter a new phase.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD), on Saturday, warned that Russian forces are “almost certainly” massing in the South in preparation for a counteroffensive from Ukraine.

In an intelligence update, the MoD tweeted that long convoys of tanks, military trucks and towed artillery were moving southwest from the Donbas in eastern Ukraine.

The tweet stated that Russia is entering a new phase in its war against Ukraine. “The heaviest fighting will shift to a roughly 350km frontline stretching southwest from near Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, and paralleling the Dnieper River.”

According to the MoD update, Battalion tactical units – which are made up between 800 and 1000 troops – were deployed to annexe Crimea. They will support Russian troops at Kherson.

It is believed that equipment was also moved from Russia to areas occupied Moscow, including Melitopol and Berdiansk – via Kerch Bridge to Crimea.

Kyiv is increasing its focus on rail links, ammunition depots, bridges and other infrastructure in the southern regions.

This strategy relies on the railroad spur connecting Kherson and Crimea. It has a combination “block, damage. deny. destroy and disrupt” effects that are intended to hinder Russia’s logistical resupply.
