Russian army's activity decreases in Robotyne-Novoprokopivka area
Serhiy Lyshenko, deputy of the Zaporizhzhia Regional Council, spoke about the battles for the Robotyne-Novoprokopivka line
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"Russia's activity has decreased in recent days. The occupiers are conducting some reconnaissance there, but it is not the same activity as it was a few months ago. Previously, it was up to 10 or 12 attacks per day to knock out the Ukrainian troops, but now it is 2 or 3 attacks per day. They are not of the same level of activity as before," noted Lyshenko.
According to the Zaporizhzhia regional council deputy, several factors affect the decrease in Russia's activity.
"This is due to the weather. Also, according to available information, some Russian forces were partially redeployed from Zaporizhzhia region to the Avdiivka and Kherson directions. They were used to storm Krynky, so the concentration of troops has slightly decreased," he said.
During the attacks, the Russian troops began to use less equipment, noted Lyshenko.
"The technical support of the Russian army in the Zaporizhzhia sector has slightly decreased, but the reasons for this are unclear. Probably, it is due to the necessary modernization, repair or they just hid the equipment," he said.
It has become easier for the Ukrainian Armed Forces in this area today, but everyone understands that this may be a temporary break and that the invading forces will become active again in some time, Lyshenko added.
On January 20, the General Staff reported that Ukrainian defenders repelled three Russia's attacks west of Verbove in the Zaporizhzhia region.
