Russia is building three lines of defense beyond Kherson, which indicates the abandonment of the offensive

Russian units are building three lines of defense on the left bank of the Dnieper near Kherson. This, in particular, is indicated by OSINT analysts and a number of Western publications.

According to sources and satellite images, the Russian side is digging trenches and equipping long-term firing points. According to the Defense Express resource, the first line runs along the Dnieper, the second - 5-10 km inland and the third - at a distance of 20-25 km from the mouth of the river. Separate elements of the defense line are located at a relative distance from the Dnieper - in the Yagorlytsky Bay on the Black Sea coast.

Russia is building three lines of defense beyond Kherson, which indicates the abandonment of the offensive

The total length of the line is 180-200 km. At the same time, it is important to note that the Russian Federation does not advertise the construction of defensive structures, as it did the day before with the "Wagner Line" in the current territory of the LPR and DPR and in the Belgorod region.

The construction of the defense line, apparently, may indicate the refusal of the RF Armed Forces from an offensive in the southern direction.

Earlier, the deputy head of the administration of the Kherson region, Kirill Stremousov, spoke about the likely abandonment of Kherson by Russian troops, urging the population to move to the left bank. At the same time, the loss of the city makes it a difficult task to return it, since the Armed Forces of Ukraine can turn it into a real fortress.

    "about the etkaz from the offensive" perhaps there is not enough strength for. And are you preparing for the worst?
    In the event of a major offensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so that there is where to catch on.
    Like in 1943 near Kursk, remember?
    Gerasimov and Surovikin do not report to me, and therefore I can fantasize:
    a) "reconnaissance reported accurately" (c) a decisive offensive is being prepared and, in order to prevent it from reaching the coast, take up a dead defense.
    b) bargaining begins, as Z says, so there is no offensive and will not be
    c) sit out on the new "Maginot Line", and then, having gathered strength, shandarahnut.
    I repeat - my proposals and "raw" they need to be "cut", which I propose to do.
    Do not rush with a minus, but discuss

      fawning over the West interferes with the healthy resolution of the goals voiced through the media by the country's leadership ....

        What do you see as cursing? In the refusal of a straightforward reaction to their provocations? So the West would be glad if we take stupid steps, provocations are calculated for this.

    I would have formed differently: an acceptable compromise.
    As it does not sound rude, but February 24
    there was a lot of stupidity. With blindfolds and eyes to rush into the mountains, so with this NWO.
    In May, V. V realized that there would be no FRU, there would be no life for Donbass, hence the referendum.
    The next step is negotiations. And everything would be fine, but "missed" Balakleya.
    Now, it is necessary to reach a position as far as Liman, and then begin negotiations.
    Personally, I think so, but how will it come out?
    One thing is clear: it is impossible to give away new subjects!!

      You can’t call this stupidity without knowing the intentions of the enemy at that time. And then it happened that there was probably some kind of calculation for the coup in Kyiv in March, but it didn’t turn out our way.

        "a coup in Kyiv" had such prerequisites, but the SBU sensed them in time and 2 generals hurried to resign.
        Perhaps someone snitched

    The personnel must be constantly busy with business, and the preparation of fortifications is not stupidity, but a necessity! Otherwise, you can lose too much ...
