In an interview with The Economist, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Valery Zaluzhny gave an assessment of the capabilities of the army of Ukraine and Russia. He allowed the offensive of the RF Armed Forces from the territory of Belarus.

Zaluzhny called the winter period a turning point. He believes that Ukrainian troops will be able to prepare by receiving additional weapons. MK columnist drew attention to this Dmitry Popov. At the same time, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine noted that the Russian army is exhausting and exhausting the Ukrainian troops along the entire front.

“It cannot be unequivocally said that Zaluzhny’s pessimistic assessments are a kind of signal about the readiness of Ukrainian politicians to “turn the shop.” But there is a clear hint of this,” the journalist noted.

Popov stressed that the rumors about the “replacement” of Zaluzhny are circulating more and more often because of this.

Earlier, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation issued 76 missiles60 shot down by Ukrainian air defense.
