Ukrainians should expect “good news” from the battlefield by the end of 2022, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov told the Ukrainian Military TV broadcaster on Aug. 24.

Noting that while a number of factors will determine how the war develops, the minister said he remains optimistic.

“I’m an informed optimist, and I have grounds to hope that we’ll have good news for the Ukrainian society and world, this year,” said Reznikov.

“It’s important for people to experience a major victory.”
