Analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) predict that the Russian army will most likely intensify current offensive operations at the front, as well as missile and drone strikes in the coming weeks.

This information was reported by ISW, URA-Inform reports.  

ISW noted that this is due to the fact that the Russian invaders want to take advantage of the closing window of limited Ukrainian materiel.

Analysts noted that Russian forces continued, and in some areas intensified, ongoing offensive operations at the front, likely taking advantage of abnormally dry spring conditions and ongoing shortages of Ukrainian equipment until the arrival of promised Western security assistance.

Also, the Russian army tried to use Ukraine's regressive air defense capabilities in an attempt to destroy the Ukrainian energy system and cause long-term damage to infrastructure and defense-industrial potential.

“The expected arrival of US security assistance has likely highlighted these considerations for Russian forces, and Russian military commanders are likely to step up offensive operations, as well as missile and drone strikes, to achieve operationally significant results that will certainly become more difficult to achieve.” against well-equipped Ukrainian forces”, — the report says.

At the same time, ISW emphasize that Russian troops have achieved tactical successes only in the last 6 months, when the situation with Ukraine worsened, but it is unlikely that they will be able to achieve a breakthrough that will lead to destruction of the front line.

“Russian troops may still be able to achieve significant operational successes in the coming weeks and may give priority to sectors of the front where Ukrainian defenses are relatively unstable. Especially to the west of Avdeevka, or sections of the front where Russian troops are within reach of an operationally significant target, for example, near Chasovoy Yar,” analysts say.

We recall that it was previously reported that the Russian Federation for the first time officially announced Putin’s intention to seize Kharkov: details.
