Russian military formations from across Eurasia bear brunt of Ukraine’s counter offensive – UK intel

Russian military formations from across Eurasia bear brunt of Ukraine’s counter offensive – UK intel

Russia deployed in Ukraine its military formations, strategically positioned across Eurasia against China and NATO, which dislocates Russia’s established national security strategy, the British Defense Ministry says.

The ministry tweeted:

  • “Military formations drawn from across Russia are currently bearing the brunt of Ukraine’s counter offensive.”
  • “In Zaporizhzhia Oblast, the 58th Combined Arms Army is defending heavily entrenched lines; normally it secures Russia’s volatile Caucasus region. Around Velyka Novosilka, the 5th Combined Arms Army and Naval Infantry hold the front; they are routinely based 7000km away as a balance to Chinese power.”
  • “Around Bakhmut, the defence is now largely formed around airborne regiments normally stationed in western Russia, who normally act as an elite rapid reaction force in case of tensions with NATO. The way Russia is accepting risks across Eurasia highlights how the war has dislocated Russia’s established national strategy.”
