Major Russian breakthrough is unlikely in Ukraine - British intelligence
A major breakthrough by Russian troops at the front in Ukraine is unlikely. The occupying Russian forces continue localized attacks in several areas, but the overall situation at the front remains static
The UK Ministry of Defense assessed the situation in Ukraine in its latest report.
“In recent weeks, Ukraine has mobilized a concerted effort to improve field fortifications as its forces pivot to a more defensive posture along much of the front line,” the report states. “This follows Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s calls, from late November 2023, for faster fortifications in key sectors.”
British intelligence emphasizes that on the border with Belarus, the Ukrainian military has been fortifying itself with dragon's teeth, razor wire, and anti-tank ditches.
At the same time, the British Ministry of Defense believes that the situation at the front remains static, and a major Russian breakthrough is unlikely.
“Russia continues local offensive options in several sectors, but individual attacks are rarely above platoon size. A major Russian breakthrough is unlikely and overall, the front is characterized by stasis,” the report says.
