The command of the Russian occupiers seems to be faced with a dilemma: should they strengthen their troops in the Kherson region at the expense of units from the neighboring Zaporizhzhya region?
At least, this is what the British Ministry of Defense stated in the latest report on the Russian-Ukrainian war, citing its intelligence. Although it did not provide any substantial evidence of such an assumption:
"From the beginning of July 2023, there is a high probability of intensification of hostilities in the area of the lower reaches of the Dnipro. In addition to intense fighting on the east bank (of the Dnieper) around a small Ukrainian bridgehead near the destroyed Antoniv bridge, small units of Russian and Ukrainian troops are also contesting islands in the Dnieper delta."
It seems that this is another "finger in the sky". After all, wherever the Armed Forces of Ukraine launch a serious counteroffensive in the southern direction (in the direction of Crimea or the Sea of Azov), the invaders will throw their reserves there.
Meanwhile, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that last day in the Kherson direction, the invaders concentrated their main efforts on preventing the further advance of our troops.
