Russia is withdrawing troops from Kyiv to attack Donbass, according to the British Defense Ministry
The repeated failures of the Russians in battle and the successful counterattacks of Ukrainian troops mean that the Russian offensive has not achieved its goal of encircling Kyiv. Instead, Russia will try to shift its military activity to eastern Ukraine and continue the offensive in Donbass. This was reported by the British Ministry of Defense.
" Russia's statements about reduced activity around Kyiv and reports of the withdrawal of some Russian units from these areas may indicate Russia's recognition that it has lost initiative in the region ," the British military said in a statement on Twitter.
The British Defense Ministry believes that Russia is likely to try to shift fighting power from northern Ukraine and continue the offensive in Donetsk and Luhansk regions in the east.
It will be recalled that following the Russian-Ukrainian talks in Istanbul on March 29, Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said that Russian military activity in Kyiv and Chernihiv would be reduced in order to increase mutual trust and create conditions for further talks.
