Despite the current operational focus in the central Donbass, Russia remains concerned about the security of the edges of its extended front line, the British Ministry of Defense estimates. Russia’s front line in Ukraine is approximately 1,288 km, of which 192 km is in the Russian-occupied Zaporizhia Oblast.

In the daily intelligence update, the ministry explained that this is evidenced by the continuation of the construction of defensive fortifications in the Zaporizhia and Luhansk regions and the deployment of personnel.

1288 kilometers of front line

Russia’s front line in Ukraine is approximately 1,288 km, of which 192 km is in the Russian-occupied Zaporizhia Oblast.

“A major Ukrainian breakthrough in Zaporozhye would significantly undermine the survivability of the Russian ‘land bridge’ linking Russia’s Rostov Oblast to Crimea. A Ukrainian success in Lugansk would further undermine Russia’s stated war goal of ‘liberation’ Donbass. Deciding which of these threats to prioritize in countering is likely one of the main dilemmas for Russian operational planners.
