Russia probably redeployed the main units of the airborne troops to the Donetsk and Luhansk directions.
Intelligence officers note that from September to October, the most weakened units of the Airborne Forces (Airborne Forces) of the Russian Federation participated in the defense of Russian-controlled territory west of the Dnieper River in the Kherson region. Some units of paratroopers were reinforced by mobilized reservists.
“While these poorly trained personnel will weaken the supposedly elite capabilities of the Airborne Forces, Russia is likely to still distribute these units in sectors that are considered particularly important,” the report said.
According to the British Ministry of Defense, potential operational tasks of the Airborne Forces include supporting the defense in the Kreminna-Svatove section of the Luhansk region or intensifying offensive operations on the city of Bakhmut, Donetsk region.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that 310 Russian occupiers had been killed in a day, and about 85,720 had been killed since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.
