UK: Russia Made Slow Progress in Eastern Ukraine


London, August 01 (QNA) - The British military intelligence on Monday said that the Russian forces continued to attempt tactical assaults on the Bakhmut axis, northeast of the city of Donetsk, in eastern Ukraine, where they made slow progress.
"Russia is likely reallocating a significant number of its forces from the northern Donbas sector to southern Ukraine," the intelligence said in its daily report on the developments of the Russian war in Ukraine.
The British report indicated that Russia is currently adjusting the operational design of its Donbas sector after failing to achieve a decisive operational breakthrough according to the plan it has been following since last April, and the report pointed out that Russia has identified the Zaporizhzhia front as a vulnerable area in need of reinforcement in the period current.
Russia currently controls about 20 percent of Ukrainian territory, including large parts of the east and south of the country, more than five months after it began its military operation in Ukraine on Feb. 24. (QNA)
