This was stated by the spokeswoman for Operational Command South Natalia Humeniuk, who spoke on the air of the national telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"The fact that they are transferring more prepared forces to the east – it is clear that their priority is now focused there. But the southern region has always remained in their field of vision, they do not let go of it and keep it as an additional area on which an unexpected active strike can be delivered," Humeniuk said.
