Key takeaways from the latest russian offensive campaign assessment by ISW

According to the Institute for the Study of War:

“Russian forces are likely using Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in Enerhodar to play on Western fears of a nuclear disaster in Ukraine, attempting to thereby degrade the will of Western powers to provide military support to a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

“Moscow is likely continuing efforts to leverage its relationship with Tehran in order to secure drones for use in Ukraine.

“Russian forces conducted a limited ground attack northwest of Slovyansk and continued efforts to advance on Bakhmut from the northeast, east, and southeast.

“Russian forces are prioritizing frontal assaults on Avdiivka and failed to gain ground in Pisky.

“Russian forces are reportedly forming a strike group to prevent Ukrainian counter offensives in northern Kherson Oblast or counterattack against them.

“Russian occupation authorities may allow both in-person and online voting in upcoming pseudo-referenda on the annexation of occupied Ukrainian territory into Russia, enabling more straightforward Russian vote rigging.”
