Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov has stated that the Ukrainians would have "good news" about the situation at the front before the end of this year. He said this in an interview with Military Television, answering the question of when to wait for the outcome of the war, - Ukrinform reports.
"Good news will come before the end of the year", - Reznikov said.
According to him, everything will depend on many factors, but he is optimistic.
"I am an aware optimist or well-informed, so I have certain positive hopes that this year, there will be good and pleasant news for the entire Ukrainian society and the world. It is important for people to see victory", - Reznikov said.
He added that in order to win, Ukraine needs the support of other countries.
"If we have the will, desire, readiness and ability to defend ourselves, we need other types of resources - weapons, ammunition, money to finance the state and many other things. We have a chance to win faster and cheaper, in terms of Ukrainian losses, thanks to the Alliance of Partners. I can definitely testify that our partners are ready to work with us not only in the short term, but also in the long term", - the Minister of Defense said.
According to him, Ukraine's mistake was that we trusted our neighbor too much, we believed so much that "we did not care about our army".
"We have a war of survival with you, and we will survive in this war, we will break the spine of this Goliath", - Reznikov is convinced.
As reported, the Armed Forces of Ukraine liquidated about 45 850 russian invaders from February 24 to August 25.
Reznikov stated two days before that Ukraine had already passed the worst-case scenario for the war.
