Motuzianyk's quote: "Such actions by the enemy are in pursuit of several goals.

Of course, this is a so-called manoeuvre, it is an increase in forces so that the units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces located in certain areas do not move to other operational zones, [so this] ties down [Ukrainian] troops.

Secondly, as we know, Russia aims to seize the Kherson region (in addition to Donetsk and Luhansk regions). Therefore, we expect that this equipment will most likely be used by the enemy there. "
