Counter-offensive of the armed forces – the army passes through the most difficult defense lines of the Russian Federation.

According to Ukrainian and American sources, experts noted that now the advance of the armed forces could take place in the areas of the defensive positions of the Russian troops, which are the most difficult series.

Geospatial imagery released on 25 August showed defense forces advancing 1.5 km southeast of Novoprokopivka (13 km south of Orekov).

US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley said on August 25 that armed forces were now pushing through the main complex of Russian defense lines in the direction of the Ukrainian offensive.

On August 26, Reuters reported that the commander of the armed forces fighting in the southern direction said he believed that Ukrainian forces had broken the most difficult line in the Russian defense zone and could now advance rapidly.

The Ukrainian commander is said to have entered areas where SAF fighters faced only Russian “rear support groups” and he expects further advances in those areas to be easier.

On August 25, Russian “combat forces” reported that Ukrainian armed forces attacked areas in the direction of the rear defense lines near Verbovoi (18 km southwest of Oricho), suggesting that the Ukrainian army may be close to the tactical rear lines. They are now breaking through a series of Russian defensive positions. At the same time, experts say that these reports should not be misinterpreted as indicating that Ukrainian forces entered the rear of the Russians at an operational level.

Also mentioned in the report ZSU will appear at the range of the next series of prepared Russian defensive positions, which may be weakMore than the invaders’ previous security complexes, but still a serious problem.

Many of the defensive positions that Ukrainian troops are now advancing are densely lined with mines and fortifications, and Russian forces have sent significant troops, equipment and troops.

Many of the Russian defensive positions now in front of the armed forces may be a relatively more continuous complex of anti-tank ditches; Anti-tank obstacles “Dragon’s Teeth”; and additional minefields (behind these obstacles are Russian combat positions), which is very similar to the Russian first line of defense.

The Institute for War Research points out that the extent of mines in the vicinity of this series of prepared defensive positions is unclear, although they may be mined to a lesser extent to allow Russian forces operating north of these positions. Back off.

“Furthermore, ISW has recently assessed that the series strength of these prepared defensive positions may be less defensible than positions that Ukrainian forces have already encroached on in the north, although this remains unclear,” the report said.

Analysts note that each of these Russian “lines” are defensive positions with their own forward and rear positions, and it is important to distinguish between the rear areas of individual Russian defensive positions and Russian defenses in southern Ukraine.

Thus, the defensive “lines” of the interlopers are conditional in the sense that the positions prepared by the Russian Federation are not uniform along the entire front in southern Ukraine and are not fully staffed. To the south of the armed forces’ current offensive there are additional prepared defensive positions of the occupiers, although Russian forces can only include these positions in a coordinated defense if they have the personnel and equipment to fully exploit these positions. Activities.
