Update from November 29, 11:15 a.m

.: After its devastating failures, Moscow is overturning its basic military-tactical concept in the Ukraine war.

The Ministry of Defense in London has now published this assessment of British secret services.

In the past three months, Putin's troops have not acted as tactical battalion groups (BTG) in their invasion, it said.

The high-intensity fighting over a wide area would have revealed several errors in the concept.

"The relatively small allocation of infantry to the BTG has often proved insufficient." In addition, the decentralized distribution of artillery did not allow Russia to exploit its quantitative advantage with this important weapon.

Only a few commanders would be allowed to use the model flexibly.

The BTG concept is a central pillar of Russian military doctrine in recent years.

Each tactical unit is equipped with infantry, anti-aircraft, artillery, logistics and reconnaissance units.

This should enable the units to fight independently with several types of weapons.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has since called on both warring parties to exercise caution and regularly warns of a nuclear catastrophe.

Zaporizhia Oblast is one of four Ukrainian regions that Vladimir Putin declared annexed by decree.

Ukraine News: US experts report on new Kremlin plan

First report from November 27th

: Kiev/Washington – Yevgeny Prigozhin not only keeps the EU Parliament busy, but also the Kremlin.

The Russian oligarch, who is also known as "Putin's cook" because of his interim supply to the Kremlin kitchens, announced in September that he had founded the paramilitary "Wagner Group".

Yanukovych friend as a counter to Prigozhin?

The Russian-Armenian businessman Sarkissyan is considered to be close to the Kremlin and wants to use his new post to set up a "private military company," it said.

Yanukovych once ruled in an authoritarian manner.
