Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der (aus technischen Gründen knappe) Sammler vom 14. Oktober 2022:
• Das britische Intel Update:
In the last three days, pro-Russian forces have made tactical advances towards the centre of the town of Bakhmut in Donetsk Oblast.
Elements of 2nd Army Corps, the pro-Russia militia of the Luhansk region, likely advanced into the villages of Opytine and Ivangrad to the south of the town.
There have been few, if any, other settlements seized by regular Russian or separatist forces since early July.
owever, forces led by the private military company Wagner Group have achieved some localised gains in the Donbas: Wagner likely remains heavily involved in the Bakhmut fighting.
Russia likely views seizing Bakhmut as a preliminary to advancing on the Kramatorsk-Sloviansk urban area which is the most significant population centre of Donetsk Oblast held by Ukraine.
Russia continues to prosecute offensive operations in central Donbas and is, very slowly, making progress.
However, its overall operational design is undermined by the Ukrainian pressure against its northern and southern flanks, and by severe shortages of munitions and manpower.
