Russia’s war against Ukraine – all developments

The head of the Ukrainian military intelligence service sees this as an extremely optimistic-sounding prognosis an end to the war with a Russian defeat by the end of the year. There will be a turnaround on the fronts by mid-August at the latest, Major General Kyrylo Budanov told the British broadcaster Sky News on Friday evening. “The turning point comes in the second half of August.” By the end of the year, Ukraine will regain control of all its territories, including the Crimean Peninsula.

The secret service official denied that the Russian armed forces were often said to be strong. “It’s a myth.” They are not strong. “It’s just a horde of people with guns,” he said of the Russian army.

Budanov also expected major changes in the Kremlin. In his view, a coup against Russian President Vladimir Putin is already underway. “They are moving towards it, nothing is going to stop them.” In addition, Putin was seriously ill with cancer, he claimed. He did not provide evidence for his claims.
