According to the Analytical Center, Russia is sending National Guard troops (Rosgard) to the Luhansk region due to the decline in support for the war between the separatists of the so-called Luhansk People’s Republic. The Institute of Military Affairs believes that the separatist militias may refuse to fight outside the boundaries of the territory they claim. Rosgard’s presence may also help quell unrest in the region.
The US think tank said the redirection of Rosgard’s forces to maintain order in the Luhansk region is driving them away from other parts of Ukraine, which will likely result in Russia’s inability to translate limited tactical gains into operational success.
