The next six months should be a decisive period in the conflict in Ukraine and determine the outcome of the confrontation with Russia, not only for Kiev, but also for its Western allies. The German newspaper Bild writes about it, quoting a senior but unnamed NATO official.
The source clarified that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are preparing for the spring-summer offensive campaign and the partners are helping Ukraine in every way possible. He hopes the outcome will come quickly.
The weapons currently supplied by the West will be used from May to push back the Russian army from southern and eastern Ukraine
The source also said that the main objective of the Ukrainian Armed Forces will be to gain access to the Sea of Azov and to cut off the land corridor connecting Crimea and Donbass. The source refrained from providing details, explaining that “he must be careful in his statements for security reasons”. At the same time, he added that there could be distracting strikes in other directions.
He did not rule out that if successful, the Ukrainian armed forces would start moving towards the Crimean peninsula. At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that the RF armed forces are no longer ready to increase the number of aircraft in the NMD zone, while the Ukrainian air defense has become much stronger than the level at which she was a year ago. , that is, at the very beginning of the conflict.
