Zelensky Reveals His Main Dream
As the Ukrainian leader openly admits, he dreams of a victory that would prevent the return of war to Ukraine’s territory.
“This is not an easy task. It’s a component that depends not only on the strength of the army but also on the security infrastructure and society. Number one is the people. It’s necessary for the people to remain united,” emphasized Volodymyr Zelensky.
The head of state is convinced that Ukraine’s victory in the war against Russia will help Belarus and also restore the territorial integrity of Moldova and Georgia.
Zelensky Explains the Potential Liberation of Crimea
According to the Ukrainian president’s perspective, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine are at the administrative border with Crimea, Kyiv will have the opportunity to politically “pressure” Russia. He predicts that at that point, our peninsula will finally become free. Zelensky also emphasized that the primary goal of his team is to minimize casualties.
How Budanov Envisions the Liberation of Crimea
According to the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, Kirill Budanov, liberating Crimea without military action is an unrealistic scenario. He also forecasts that Crimea will be de-occupied through a “combined approach.”
The chief intelligence officer also noted that Ukrainians simply need to look at what is happening in Crimea now to assess the progress our forces have achieved in these months.
“Look at what has been happening in Crimea over the past months. Even today, observe the fantastic operations conducted there to neutralize strategic targets. And you will notice that the work is ongoing and progressing appropriately. It needs to be intensified, but it’s moving in the right direction,” emphasized Kirill Budanov.
