The Russian army is moving troops from the Kherson region to Donetsk, US analysts say

“In the coming weeks, Russian forces are likely to see gains, but they are unlikely to be operationally significant,” the institute said. He points out that on November 13 and 14, the Russian Ministry of Defense increased the number of claims about Russian territorial gains in the Donetsk region.

The Institute reminds that this is a statement about the completion of the conquest of the village of Majorsk, about 20 kilometers from Bakhmut, or the village of Pavlivka, a place about 45 kilometers from Donetsk.

“The Russian Ministry of Defense is exaggerating in the description of territorial gains in order to highlight Russian successes in the Donetsk region and downplay the discontent over the losses in the Kherson region,” ISW analysts believe.
