According to British Defense Minister Ben Wallace, Russia is currently failing in many areas in its war against Ukraine.

Therefore, Russian President Vladimir Putin could try to change his strategy again. “The Russians are currently failing on the ground in many areas,” Wallace told Sky News. “Putin’s Plans A, B and C have failed and he may be looking at Plan D.”

Recently, there have been increasing reports that the Russian troops in the south-east of the country in the Kharkiv Oblast have come under increasing pressure and have been cut off from supplies by targeted Ukrainian rocket attacks on infrastructure points.

In order to contain the Ukrainian counter-offensive in the south, Russia is apparently moving troops massively from the hitherto hard-fought Donbass region. There, the Russian army was only able to achieve minimal territorial gains.

The Ukrainian troops have most likely established a bridgehead south of the Inhulets River, which forms the northern border of Kherson, the Ministry of Defense in London said on Twitter on Thursday, citing the secret service.

Russia’s 49th Army is on the west bank of the Dnieper and now appears very vulnerable. Cherson is practically cut off from the other occupied territories. (TSP/Reuters)
