Putin has extended the deadline for russian forces to capture Donetsk Oblast

In its latest update, the Institute for the Study of War with reference to the Ukrainian General Staff informed that, “Russian President Vladimir Putin has extended the deadline for Russian forces to capture Donetsk Oblast from August 31 to the still highly unlikely target date of September 15, and Russian forces are conducting several redeployments to meet this goal.”

According to ISW:

“Russian forces are regrouping elements of the Central Military District (CMD) operating in the Luhansk-Donetsk Oblast directions in an effort to increase the number of troops west of Donetsk City.”

“Russian forces deployed two battalion tactical groups (BTGs) in the direction of the western Zaporizhia Oblast frontline from Belgorod Oblast, which might support resumed Russian offensive operations in Donbas.”

“Russian military officials are continuing to form the 3rd Army Corps (11.5-12 thousand soldiers – ed.) to deploy to Donetsk Oblast, also likely to resume offensive operations in the Donetsk operational area.”

“Russian forces also reportedly introduced one BTG each to the Slovyansk and Mykolaiv directions.”

“Russian forces are continuing to react to the Ukrainian counteroffensive in Kherson Oblast by consistently transferring military convoys to southern Ukrainian via the Kerch Strait Bridge.”
