Does anyone know if there are simply better quality Russian Troops being deployed in the South as opposed to the North?

I don't think so, in the North they deployed Spetsnaz, Alphas and paratroopers, which is the best that Russia has. However, they deployed them in a really stupid way that got most of them killed.

I would say that it is more likely that Ukraine didn't have any reserves in the southern area that could stop the advance from Crimea after the line at the border broke, and that protecting Kyiv and Kharkiv as the two biggest population centers was a strategic priority. Even now, their main focus seems to be keeping the roads to Kyiv open.

He who defends everything defends nothing.
