Decisive battles will take place in Ukraine from mid- to late-spring, the head of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine, Kyrylo Budanov, said in an interview with the business magazine Forbes Ukraine on Feb. 22.
“Nothing has changed,” he said.
“The decisive battles will take place from mid- to late-spring... Yes, this will be a turning point.”
Budanov said it would be necessary to “create conditions for a security zone around our border” after Ukraine regains all of its occupied territories.
At the same time, the officer said that Ukraine regaining control of its borders of 1991 would not mean the end of the war.
“It’s possible to transform the war into a completely different format, it’s possible (it will) switch to a permanent defensive operation,” Budanov said.
“A good example is Israel, which lives constantly in a state of war, and conducts a defensive operation along its borders. Most likely, this will lead us to solve internal problems in the occupied territories that were previously occupied – this is a huge cluster of issues.”
