British intelligence assumes that Russia has shifted the bulk of its airborne troops to eastern Ukraine. Troops are considered an elite unit.
According to British estimates, Russia has shifted the bulk of its airborne troops to eastern Ukraine. Based on secret service findings, the London Ministry of Defense said on Thursday that defensive positions in the area around the cities of Swatowe and Kreminna in the Luhansk region, or the ongoing Russian offensive against the city of Bakhmut in the Donetsk region, are potential. distribution areas.
In September and October, soldiers were deployed to defend the west of the Dnipro River in the Cherson region in southern Ukraine.
According to British information, some of the severely weakened airborne units (WDW) were reinforced with mobilized reserves. “While these poorly trained personnel will dilute WDW’s supposedly elite capabilities, Russia will likely reassign these units to divisions deemed particularly important,” a London statement said.
Considered an elite unit and representing a separate branch of the armed forces, the Russian airborne troops were supposed to conquer the capital Kiev, together with ground troops, nine months ago at the beginning of the offensive war against Ukraine, but were repulsed.
Moscow criticizes London
The British Ministry of Defense, citing intelligence information, has published daily information on the course of the war since the beginning of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine at the end of February. By doing so, the British government wants to both counter the Russian portrayal and keep its allies in line. Moscow accuses London of conducting a targeted disinformation campaign.
