Against the backdrop of a successful counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, most of the Russian forces are forced to go exclusively on the defensive. The situation at the front will further undermine the confidence of Russian soldiers in the top military leadership of the country.
This is stated in the report of the British Ministry of Defense, published on September 12.
In southern Ukraine, near Kherson, Russian troops are "struggling to move sufficient reserves across the Dnieper River to the front line," according to intelligence reports.. It is noted that Ukrainian long-range artillery hits crossings across the Dnieper so often that Russia cannot repair damaged road bridges.
