Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said that the war against Russia is entering a protracted phase, but is gradually turning towards Ukraine.

He wrote about this on Facebook.

Reznikov reminded that the Russians had not been able to achieve any goals until May 9, while the West also only recently agreed to supply Ukraine with heavy weapons. Now his presence at the front is a point, and a radical change requires weeks of training and deliveries.

"The growing pressure of sanctions on Russia and the increase in foreign aid to Ukraine in the next few months should create conditions under which the Kremlin will finally lose the chance to achieve at least some success. Then a new window of opportunity for Ukraine should appear," the Minister stressed.
