Last year has proven that Ukraine is able to not only stop the advance of Russian forces but also defeat them on the battlefield.
That’s according to Oleksii Reznikov, Ukraine’s Defense Minister, who spoke in an interview with Forbes.
“Right now, there is a process of amassing resources on both sides. Each side is ready to take the initiative, and we’re waiting. We’re ready for an offensive by the Russians and we’re preparing a counter-offensive. Our key goal in this war is to win by freeing all temporarily occupied territories, liberating our people and holding responsible those accountable before an international tribunal. We believe that together with the entire civilized world, we can do this. We have proved this past year that Ukraine is able not only to stop the Russian army but to defeat it,” Reznikov said.
According to the minister, Ukraine could win over Russia due to the weapons provided by Western partners.
“No one believed that David would defeat Goliath but it happened thanks to that stone in a sling. In our case, David, with the help of the weapons from our friends, will defeat Goliath,” Reznikov stressed.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov of Ukraine said that following the Ukrainian delegation’s visit to Brussels, the “panzer fist” for Ukraine would strengthen, set in a few months to be able to resolve the tasks, according to plan conceived by Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhnyi.
“Right now, there is a process of amassing resources on both sides. Each side is ready to take the initiative, and we’re waiting. We’re ready for an offensive by the Russians and we’re preparing a counter-offensive.”
I take it that the AFU will wait for the cockroaches to attack and then counterattack. Of course, we’ll see what will really happen. The AFU general staff has been good at surprising everyone.
Sometimes, it’s best to counterattack first, sometimes it’s best to let the enemy attack, and sometimes it’s best to do it like Rehznikov hinted. Which plan is best depends on many aspects that we are not familiar with. Either way, I’m sure that many more orcs will be sent to hell in the near future.
At any rate, my next trip to Ukraine is already planned. Maybe I will get there during the thick of it … or maybe the flash in the pan has already flashed. We’ll see.
I’m anxious for you Sir Facts. A note to anyone else that’s planning on going into Ukraine via Warsaw, the prices have gone sky high so get your tickets early. I imagine there are many Ukrainians returning home during nice weather to make repairs or visit relatives and friends. Perhaps also to send some invading orcs to the permanent Kobzan concert…
The last reason is the best.
So far, the seats have always been sold out, there and back. I don’t understand why the ticket prices are so high. The oil price has gone down quite a bit.
