Western analysts believe that the new calls from the Russians to strengthen the state’s border defense will not have much impact.
The military operation conducted by the RDK and the Legion of Freedom of Russia in the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation revealed serious deficiencies in the region’s defense line. This is stated in the report of ISW analysts.
The leader of PIK Wagner, Yevgeny Prigozhin, once announced the construction of a fortification complex called “Wagner Line” in the region.
Ultimately, he criticized the Russian bureaucracy for not supporting the construction of the line.
However, the Russian authorities spent, according to the local governor Vyacheslav Gladkov, 10 billion rubles to defend the region.
New calls for increased defense along the Russian-Ukrainian border are unlikely to have a significant impact, experts added. In their opinion, Russian troops are not properly distributing forces that are best suited to support active offensive operations.
Analysts note that the defense preparations in the Belgorod region could do nothing to prevent the May 22 invasion.
ISW believes that Prigozhin is taking advantage of the chaos in the information space to strengthen his influence in the country.
Recall that the commander of the RDK Denis White Rex noted on May 24 that the Russian Volunteer Corps and the Legion “Freedom of Russia” entered the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation 42 km deep, the most active stage of their actions are done, but the operation is still ongoing.
As you know, on Monday, May 22, the authorities of the Belgorod region of the Russian Federation announced that a “Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group” allegedly entered the border region of Graivoron. The battle seems to have taken place in three villages. A counter-terrorist regime has been operating in the region for almost a day.
The Russian Volunteer Corps and Legion Liberty of Russia announced the start of an operation in the Belgorod region to liberate Russia from the regime of Vladimir Putin. Ukrainian intelligence noted that only Russians were operating on the territory of the Belgorod region, creating a “safety zone” to protect Ukrainians.
