“This commander has extensive experience in Russian operations, which he gained in Syria. So we expect the overall command and control to improve,” he said anonymously.
With this new appointment, Russia wants to improve coordination between the various factions. Until now, Russian troops have been individually organized and commanded, the official explained.
Russia has been struggling to achieve its war objectives, and 44 days after the invasion began, it has not been able to capture major cities such as kyiv. He now focuses on the Donbass area in the east of the country.
“If Russia cannot change its tactics, it will be difficult to see how it can achieve even the limited goals it has set for itself,” the official continued.
