MOSCOW: Russiathe war in Ukraine was about to enter a new phase, with most of the fighting turning to a front of nearly 350 km (217 mi) stretching southwest from near Zaporizhzhia to Khersonparallel to River DnieperBritish military intelligence said on Saturday.
The British Ministry of Defense said on Twitter that it was almost certain that Russian forces were massing in southern Ukraine, anticipating a counterattack or preparing for a possible attack.
Long convoys of Russian military trucks, tanks, towed artillery and other weapons continued to move out of the Donbas region of Ukraine and toward the southwest.
Battalion-level battle groups (BTGs), consisting of between 800 and 1,000 troops, have been deployed to Crimea and will almost certainly be used to support Russian troops in the Kherson region, the update said.
Ukrainian forces are focusing on targeting bridges, ammunition depots and railway lines with increasing frequency in the southern regions of the country, including the strategically important railway linking Kherson with Russian-occupied Crimea, it said.
