The regrouping of Russian troops and the retreat from the right-bank bridgehead to the left bank of the Dnieper will allow the defense in depth to be restored, as well as to establish stable supply routes for the group. Attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to force the Dnieper will cost them an exorbitant price. This forecast is made by the American television channel CNN.
Withdrawing troops from the right bank to the left, Russia continues to control most of the Kherson region, including access to the Sea of Azov. A defense in depth allows not only to hold positions, complicating the attempts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to further attack by forcing the Dnieper, but also to strike on the right bank. Surovikin stabilizes the defense after several “difficult months”.
As long as Russian troops control the left bank of the Dnieper, it will be difficult for Ukrainian forces to damage or destroy the canal through which fresh water enters Crimea.

In addition, there is a high probability that the withdrawal of troops from the right-bank bridgehead that has begun is nothing more than a trap that the Russian command is trying to arrange for the Ukrainian troops. In this case, the units of the Russian army will not completely leave the right bank. However, many Western experts are sceptical about this, saying that leaving the troops on the bridgehead, the command of the Russian group will only complicate the situation for themselves.
