In addition to the Russian-occupied Kherson region, fighting also continues in the Donbass and around Kharkiv. The Russian command is facing a major decision on where to send any combat-ready reserve units it can mobilize, according to British intelligence.

According to a report on Friday by the US Institute for the Study of War (ISW), which cited Ukrainian sources, Russia may withdraw an additional 300,000 to 350,000 units of support military personnel from Russia, Syria, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Nagorno-Karabakh.

But these numbers can be misleading, as combat-deployed support units do not produce sufficient combat power and are needed for training and support combat operations, according to ISW.

On Friday, Russian troops carried out ground attacks near Bakhmut in the Donetsk region and in the western and northern suburbs of Donetsk. According to ISW, the Russians are also moving military equipment from the rear areas of the battlefield to the south of Ukraine, specifically from the Donbass and Crimea.
