“The beginning of the Russian invasion did not take place under a unified command, as there were five different army groups each leading autonomous operations. That will change under Surovikin's [Sergey Surovikin] leadership of the war. The reason it was not possible to have a unified command of all the Russian forces was the distance and lack of information technology to put together all of the command and control facilities and capabilities. What we are seeing now is one person and one headquarters is going to plan out and direct the operation. But it is also a signal that from now on the operation will concentrate on one specific area. It may be Luhansk, it may be Donetsk, it may be in the south. What we are seeing is a shrinking of the operation of Russia.”
