ISW: Occupier's BTG degraded in battles for four cities

Russian occupation troops are forced to rely on poorly trained and organized temporary formations after they actually had to abandon the concept of battalion tactical groups. This is reported by the American Institute for the Study of War.

According to analysts, since April, Russian battalion tactical groups have degraded after unsuccessful offensive operations, including attacks on Kyiv, Mariupol, Severodonetsk and Lysichansk. The institute noted that further efforts to reconstruct these BTGs to restore their combat power had failed.

It is assumed that after the failures, the occupiers threw their remaining forces and new personnel, including mobilized ones, into poorly trained, equipped and organized temporary formations with low morale and discipline.

Analysts believe that the way the Russian military has formed new structures by disbanding doctrinal battalions, regiments and brigades, probably deprived the Russians of the opportunity to return to the BTG concept, and therefore now the Russian occupiers are forced to rely on temporary formations in which the mobilized are drawn.

  • The UK Ministry of Defense reported that Russian forces probably stopped the deployment of battalion tactical groups in the last three months, as such groups showed its ineffectiveness in the battles in Ukraine.
