"The enemy is relocating the mobilized from the training grounds in Belarus and Russia to the combat zone and border areas, and continues to focus the main efforts on Donetsk region. The highest activity of the enemy is observed in the Bakhmut, Lyman and Avdiivka directions," she said.
In addition, Maliar reported that as of January 10, the Russian army included about 280 formations, together with the operational reserve (250 last week). The enemy rotates the units as part of the regional grouping of troops (forces) on the territory of Belarus.
