The latest from Ukraine: Ukraine has reached the main Russian Defense line south of Robotyne

This video is making the rounds on Twitter today. Experts believe it is an unmanned vehicle testing the ine. It has been geolocated south of the heavily defended village of Robotyne. Don't be concerned that the vehicle gets stuck in the tank trap ditch. Bulldozers will fix that. What is interesting is nothing is firing at it and there are no mine fields. No artillery fire. No antitank guns.
Pure speculation on my part: This area will be less heavily mined because Russia needed ways to supply their large groups of forces out in front of the line. The tank ditch will serve as a useful defillade to give some protection for advancing Ukrain troops. Have to wonder how many Russian troops are manning this line.
Ukraine will reach the line in another spot in a week or so. It will be an interesting August.
