Head of Ukraine’s military intelligence service: The turning point in the battle with Russia will be in late August, and all combat operations will probably be stopped by the end of December this year.
In anticipation of the protracted fighting between Russian and Ukrainian forces and the entry of the Moscow military offensive into its 80th day, the head of Ukraine’s military intelligence service, Kirillo Budanov, has called for a halt to all combat operations by the end of December.
“The turning point in the battle with Russia will be at the end of next August,” Budanov told the British Sky channel on Saturday, May 24, according to the Associated Press.
He claimed that this change would lead to a change in Russia’s leadership.
Budanov also claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “in a very bad mental and physical condition and was suffering from cancer.”
“Putin has a lot of cancer,” he said, noting that a coup had already taken place in Moscow to overthrow the Russian president.
However, no official information or statements have been made to confirm Budanov’s claims about Putin’s condition.
The head of the Ukrainian military intelligence service expressed optimism about the future of his country, noting that Russia has suffered heavy losses in these battles.
Budanov added that Ukrainian forces would retake all areas lost or occupied by the Russian military, including Donbas and the Crimean peninsula, which was annexed by Russia in 2014.
These predictions about the end of the war in late December are in line with the recently announced Western (European and American) assessments. To predict.
