Russia unlikely to have achieved substantive advances near Orikhiv, Vuhledar – UK intelligence.
It is highly unlikely that Russia has actually achieved any substantive advances near the Zaporizhzhia region’s Orikhiv and the Donetsk region’s Vuhledar.
The relevant statement was made by the Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom on Twitter, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
Over the last six days, Russian online commentators have claimed Russian forces have made significant advances, breaking through Ukrainian defences in two areas: near the Zaporizhzhia region’s Orikhiv and 100 kilometers to the east, near the Donetsk region’s Vuhledar.
According to the UK intelligence, Russian units have probably conducted local, probing attacks near Orikhiv and Vuhledar, but it is highly unlikely that Russia has actually achieved any substantive advances.
“There is a realistic possibility that Russian military sources are deliberately spreading misinformation in an effort to imply that the Russian operation is sustaining momentum,” the report states.
A reminder that , according to the UK intelligence, Russia has likely completed training of the 2nd Guards Motor Rifle Division (GMRD) in Belarus, which had been carrying out training since autumn 2022. The majority of the 2nd GMRD has now transferred back to Russia, before almost certainly being recommitted to operations in Ukraine.
In the past three weeks, about 80 Russian soldiers have surrendered in the operational zone of the Tavria operational and strategic grouping of troops. Active infantry-led attacks continue in the Avdiivka and Maryinka sectors.
