DIU says Russia's actions don't have strategic military character

The operations conducted by Russia do not have a strategic military nature.

Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, said this in a commentary to the Financial Times, Ukrinform reports citing the DIU press service.

"The current actions of the aggressor state's army at the front are devoid of any signs of strategy. The operations carried out by Russia have no strategic military character, just localized attacks," noted Skibitskyi.

According to him, after a year and a half of large-scale aggression, Russia is still trying to achieve the minimum task of reaching the administrative borders of the Donetsk region.

The DIU representative noted that the Kurpiansk direction remains one of the places where Russians are not in static defense but are trying to attack.

"The Russians are not successful here, but the Kremlin does not give up trying to achieve at least the minimum goals of the war it has started. Meanwhile, the Security and Defense Forces of Ukraine continue their offensive in several frontline areas," he emphasized.
