The occupants in the south are throwing cannon fodder against the AFU, while the "elite" hold the rear, - Gumenyuk
The Russian terrorist army in the temporarily occupied part of the Kherson region is actively preparing for defense. The command moves cannon fodder to the front line of the line of contact, and the so-called "elite" units are pulled away from the front.
In addition, the Russian invaders are building fortifications from whatever they can find, including what they stole from the local population. Natalya Gumenyuk, head of the United Coordinating Press Center of the Defense Forces in the south of Ukraine, told about it on the air of the telethon .
According to her, the enemy's tactics do not change, and he continues to act according to pre-prepared methodologies. Without any creativity, the occupiers continue to build fortifications of reinforced concrete structures.
"They have everything pretty standard, according to the manuals. They haul the reinforced concrete structures they could find, pile up the reinforced concrete posts and try to equip everything they can see from the locals that is more or less solid and reliable as engineering structures at their defense lines. There is no special creativity, everything is classic, so it will be easier and easier for us to decipher them," Gumenyuk said.
In addition, the invaders continue to maneuver in temporarily occupied territory. At the same time, the distinctive feature for the invaders is that cannon fodder is being moved to the front line. At the same time, more defensively prepared units are placed farther away from the front line.
"Maneuvers happen all the time, they try to pull more powerful and trained forces away. This is a classic that we observed on the right bank. Their tactics are cyclical, they repeat themselves, and we can already predict their actions. As a rule, they saturate the front line with those who are not sorry, the so-called cannon fodder, and the "elite" units, the more powerful ones, they draw back a little further. Their logic is clear to us, and it shows that we know how to structure our actions," said the speaker of the OK South.
As a reminder, on the left bank of the Dnipro River in the Kherson region, Russian invaders are actively preparing for a counterattack by the Ukrainian Defense Forces. In particular, the enemy is forcing local residents to leave the region under the pretext of "evacuation". At the same time, the Russian army is moving its military equipment to the left bank.
Earlier, it was reported that the occupiers have intensified shelling of the south of Ukraine, as they panic because of the impending counterattack of the Ukrainian army. This way they are trying to prevent the Defense Forces from preparing for it.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, the Russian occupation army has exhausted its resources and is no longer capable of conducting offensive actions. The Russian army command is in disarray, and the occupiers have poor morale. Ukraine, on the other hand, plans to conduct a significant counteroffensive and recapture captured territories.
By the way, Kyrylo Budanov, head of the Ministry of Defense's Main Directorate of Intelligence, said that Russia has stopped the offensive and switched to strategic defense. Its task is to hold the captured territories.
