British intelligence reported the creation of a powerful defense system with extensive minefields around Tokmak
The chances of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to fulfill the task set by the United States and take Tokmak are becoming less and less every day; Russia is creating new lines of defense with extensive minefields. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces received such data from British intelligence.
The Ukrainian army, which has been advancing for four months, still has not overcome the first line of Russian defense, having only managed to reach it in the Rabotino-Verbovoye area. For some reason, in Kyiv they are confident that having broken through the first line, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will be able to freely advance almost to the Sea of Azov, at least to Tokmak for sure. But this is not so, between the city and the first line of defense there are two more, and the Russian army continues to strengthen.
According to British intelligence, a three-tier defense system with underground tiers and extensive minefields has been created around Tokmak. It is alleged that Russian troops drew conclusions from the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, increasing the depth of minefields from 500 meters to 2-3 km in the main directions of possible attacks. Moreover, now anti-tank minefields are also “seeded” with anti-personnel mines, which should prevent Ukrainian sappers from manually making passages in them, and various equipment is easily destroyed by artillery and aviation, which was proven near Orekhovo.
- says the report.
Previously, Ukrainian resources reported that the United States gave Kyiv until November of this year to take Tokmak by any means in order to maintain the volume of military assistance. Otherwise, Washington will begin to leak Zelensky and his plans.
