The Russian occupation army is conducting operations at least in three areas that do not have a common strategic goal. This gives the enemy the opportunity to achieve tactical success in one of the sectors of their choice.

This is according to analysts at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW). At the same time, the defense forces will have to make even more efforts to defend against these Russian attacks if the United States delays providing military assistance.

Experts believe that Russia's efforts in the Chasiv Yar area and in the Lyman and Pokrovsk directions are aimed at achieving important operational goals. However, these operations are not as coordinated as it might seem. Analysts argue that the occupiers alternate their emphasis between different directions rather than focusing on all three simultaneously.

Currently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are facing a shortage of artillery shells and air defense equipment, which the occupiers are also aware of. However, the occupiers themselves lack the capabilities to conduct more than one effective large-scale operation at a time, as they used to.

According to analysts, Russian troops are resorting to several offensive actions to limit Ukraine's defense capabilities in the face of a shortage of weapons. The enemy is forcing Ukrainian forces to redistribute their defense resources on the battlefield, creating vulnerabilities that can be exploited.

The occupiers have become more active near Chasiv Yar

Russian troops have intensified their efforts to capture Chasiv Yar and seem to be using their most capable units in this direction. However, the occupiers' tactical successes east of Chasiv Yar did not lead to the encirclement of the settlement.

ISW experts believe that the units of Russian troops currently concentrated northeast and southeast of Chasiv Yar are less combat-ready and will have difficulty achieving successes similar to those achieved east of Chasiv Yar in the confrontation with Ukrainian defenders.

At the same time, Russia's tactical achievements east of Chasiv Yar did not lead to the encirclement of the settlement. The Institute for the Study of War believes that Russian troops will likely need to make significant tactical gains southeast and northwest of Chasiv Yar before they can continue to encircle the settlement. This may require additional and more capable units.

Imagery available to ISW indicates that Ukrainian forces have established significant ring-shaped defenses in the Chasiv Yar area, and it is likely that Russian forces will have difficulty breaking through these defenses quickly at their current rate of advance in the area while Ukrainian forces have sufficient ammunition to resist.

Russian troops may have to break through the town itself or perform a narrow tactical maneuver that would force them to face Chasiv Yar fortifications, armed Ukrainian positions, and the obstacles of the Siverskyi Donets-Donbas Canal.

Earlier, it was reported that on Saturday, April 13, strong explosions were heard in the temporarily occupied Luhansk. It turned out that during this attack, Ukrainian defenders successfully hit the control center of the enemy's military grouping.

Earlier, it was reported that Ukrainian UAVs reached Mordovia (Russia) for the first time, attacking a military unit in Kovylkino, which is equipped with the 29B6 Container horizon radar station. The target detection range of this radar is about 3000 km and the altitude is over 100 km.
