ISW: UAF counteroffensive cannot be contained even by elite Russian units

< p> Elite divisions of the Russian army cannot hold back the Ukrainian counteroffensive in the Kherson and Kharkov regions. This is reported by the American Institute for the Study of War.

Analysts note that Russian groups in the north of the Kherson region and on the Liman front consisted mainly of units that were considered among the best before the war.

So, units of the 144th motorized rifle division of the 20th combined arms army retreated from Liman to Kremennaya. In the Kherson region, units of the Airborne Forces operated – parts of the 76th Guards Airborne Assault Division. These divisions have been called «one of Russia's most elite forces».

«And their apparent failure to hold territory during major Ukrainian counter-offensives is consistent with ISW's preliminary assessment that that even the most elite Russian troops are increasingly degraded as the war continues. This is also evidenced by the defeat of the 4th Panzer Division of the 1st Guards Tank Army in the Kharkov counteroffensive & # 187;, & # 8212; analysts note.
