In general, the Ukrainian military is currently not observing a large-scale offensive operation or preparations for it by the Russian
in the Tavria direction.
Yevhen Yerin, the head of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavri region, stated this in the Yedyny Novy telethon.
"In general, we currently do not see any large-scale offensive operation and preparations for it, because the enemy is concentrating all its main efforts on the neighboring Donetsk and Luhansk areas," he said.
Yerin added that the enemy is pulling all its forces to Donbas, and its main task is still there.
"If there is some kind of lull, etc., then we will already expect that, perhaps, it will start in other directions as well," he said.
According to him, the situation in the Zaporizhzhia area remains stable - Russia continues to fire artillery, rocket attacks on populated areas and civilian infrastructure, as a result of which there are casualties among the civilian population.
"Here, the activity of the enemy continues in small groups, reconnaissance or somewhat such sabotage actions, in separate areas of the front to check, one might say, the strength of our defense. Currently, the defense forces repelled all these attempts, and the enemy was forced to retreat. The front line has not undergone any changes ", - noted Yerin.
He also commented on the case when near Kherson the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed a boat from which Russian saboteurs wanted to disembark.
"These are now light-powered small boats, which, in principle, they used before. And currently all their movements are being monitored, there is daily data that several such boats are being destroyed by the Armed Forces in the area of islands near Kherson," said the head of the of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavrya direction.
It will be recalled that the day before, on January 26, the head of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavri region, Yevgen Yerin, said that the
Russian troops did not create a powerful strike group
for the offensive in the Zaporozhye region.
According to the military analyst Ihor Levchenko, some active actions are now starting in various parts of the front,
some of which can be considered as a distraction
Because the Russian command, based on military science, is trying to confuse the military of the Armed Forces, Ukrainian intelligence, and hide the direction of the main strike.
