Estonian intelligence: Russian army unlikely to repel Ukrainian troops beyond the Dnipro River

Occupants won't be able to throw back Ukrainian Defense Forces from Dnipro left bank, British intelligence says

British intelligence has expressed doubt that the Russian occupiers will be able to push back the Defense Forces, which have managed to gain a foothold on the left bank of the Kherson region, beyond the Dnipro River. Currently, the defenders are holding the de-occupied territories in the southern part of the front.

This was stated by the head of the Estonian Defense Forces Intelligence Center, Ants Kiviselg, ERR reports. It is noted that the Defense Forces have two main goals of the Armed Forces in the region:

- control over the areas on the left bank of the Dnipro River;

- pushing the Russian invaders to the south, which will protect Kherson from shelling.

Kiviselg emphasized that he currently sees no prerequisites and does not believe that Ukrainians will be thrown back to the right bank. Unless it is the decision of the defenders themselves.

In general, according to the Estonian intelligence officer, the intensity of fighting in Ukraine has decreased due to the deteriorating weather. The only exception is the frontline near Avdiivka, where the number of attacks by the occupiers has increased.

As a reminder, Brigadier General Oleksandr Tarnavskyi, commander of the Tavria airborne unit, said that Russian terrorists had reduced the number of air strikes in the area. Over the past day, the enemy attacked from the air only 4 times.

At the same time, the activity of enemy infantry is still high: over the last day the Russians conducted 50 combat engagements and fired 912 artillery rounds. According to the military commander, the Defense Forces are holding steady in the Avdiivka sector.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- On November 23 and 24, Ukrainian troops conducted counterattacks in the west of Zaporizhzhya region. The defenders managed to recapture the westernmost trench of the three located about 1 km from Robotyno.

- The occupants launched a third wave of assault on the positions of the Defense Forces in Avdiivka. They are trying to attack head-on, which has never happened before, as Ukrainian soldiers have installed extremely effective fortifications at those positions.
