Danilov called the prospects for Ukraine in the war in the spring-summer

Russia seeks to drag out the war in Ukraine for a long time, but these plans will be unsuccessful. After all, the prospects for the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the spring-summer are “movement towards victory.”

This was stated by the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council in an interview. He stressed that Ukraine cannot stop.

According to him, Russia's hopes to “drag out for a very long time” the war against Ukraine will not come true.

Our prospects not only this spring, but also the prospects for the summer and for the near future – this is a movement towards victory. We can't stop. We understand that partners are involved in this,” Danilov said.

He noted that everything has its time and we will definitely liberate all our territories, including Crimea, Lugansk and Donetsk regions, with territories that are now temporarily under the occupiers.

How long can the war last: the hopes of the occupiers

Recently, analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War said the Kremlin probably does not expect the war against Ukraine to last longer than the next three years.

Last week, the Lithuanian intelligence services said that Russia is capable of waging war at its current intensity for another two years. And US intelligence said the armed conflict in Ukraine has become a brutal war of attrition, in which neither side has ultimate military superiority, but Russian President Vladimir Putin is likely prepared to continue for years.

What is the situation at the front

The situation in Bahmut is still very tense. Despite this, analysts noted that the overall pace of Russian army operations has slowed down. A recent report from the Institute for the Study of War noted that the pace could be slowed down compared to previous weeks. Analysts refer to the speaker of the Ukrainian joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tauride direction, Colonel Alexei Dmitrashkivsky.

On March 15, he said that offensive actions had been reduced over the past week. If earlier the enemy made 90-100 ground attacks per day, now it is 20-29.

According to Dmitrashkivsky, the enemy has somewhat lost its offensive potential. The reason for this was the insane losses among both manpower and equipment. The Institute notes that the speaker's statements are consistent with the general observations of analysts.
