russia’s Leadership Understands that Plan to Quickly Seize Ukraine Is Impossible to Realize
Russia’s preparartion for a long-term war means the enemy’s understanding that his plan to quickly seize Ukraine is impossible to implement. Therefore, putin is now considering the option of a long-term war of attrition. This was stated by Andrii Yusov, a representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, on the air of the telethon.
“The concept of the so-called “special military operation”, in fact, a brutal invasion of Ukraine’s territory consists in the following: putin has planned that it would be quick. And all enemy’s forces as well as means, and in general the plan of the so-called “special military operation” – are the plan of a quick war, the plan to seize Ukraine. These have not been done,” Andrii Yusov noted.
The representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine has noted that there was no long-term war of attrition in putin’s plans. However, the last months have demonstrated the need to put russia's economy on "war rails" and force russian society to get used to the idea that the war will be a long one.
“russians are mobilizing all reserves and means. They have the huge military budgets. Also, we will see soon other measures of economic nature in russia’s territory. Undoubtedly, this is what putin is preparing for. The task in Ukraine is the opposite – 2023 should be the year of victory and a fundamental change in the situation, as neither Ukraine nor the entire civilised world needs this long war," Andrii Yusov summarized.
