On the battlefield, the situation remains virtually unchanged.
According to Deputy Minister of Defense Anna Malyar, the Russians intend to reach the administrative border of the Donetsk region before the end of this year. Recall that fierce oncoming battles continue in the Bakhmut area, however, the advance of the Russian forces was insignificant and the Armed Forces of Ukraine manage to push them back. Also, the Russian troops, contrary to their intentions, failed to surround the city.
The Russian side did not publicly announce any deadlines for the seizure of the Donetsk region. At the same time, on December 24, the Institute for the Study of War stated slowdown of the Russian advance on Bakhmut.
The new commander of the Russian troops
Instead of Sergei Kuzovlev, who commanded the troops of the western military district of the Russian Federation and was part of the sphere of influence of the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces Valeria Gerasimova, appointed Evgenia Nikiforova. And this is a candidate from the group of the creator of PMC "Wagner" Evgenia Prigozhina and current commander Sergei Surovikin - Prigogine's man.
Kuzovlev was in office for about a month. According to the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Nikiforov is now at the command post of the Zapad group of troops in Boguchar, Voronezh region.
