Russian forces after retreating from the right bank of the Dnieper River in the Kherson Region are being re-staffed; some of them are likely to remain in the south, while others may be moved near Bakhmut.
As European Pravda reports, this is stated in a Nov. 18 overview of the British Defense Ministry's war in Ukraine.
After retreating from the right bank of the Dnieper River in the Kherson region, it notes, Russian troops are busy primarily re-staffing, regrouping, and preparing defensive lines in most areas along the entire front line in Ukraine.
"Units have built new trench systems near the admission border with Crimea and near the Seversky Donets between the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Some of these sites are located 60 kilometers inland from the current front line, which may indicate preparations by the Russian command in case of another significant breakthrough of the front line by the Ukrainians. It is likely that the Russian Federation will try to redeploy some of the forces that have withdrawn from near Kherson to strengthen and expand offensive operations near Bakhmut," the review noted.
