Donbass later: General Godges explained why it is important for Ukraine to liberate Crimea first of all
The liberation of Crimea is strategically important for Ukraine, it can change the course of the war. Donbass will also be de-occupied, but a first counter-offensive on the peninsula has many advantages.
This was stated by the former commander of US troops in Europe, General Ben Hodges, on the air of the telethon and explained why he thinks so.
A strategically important priority is Crimea. Donbass is important, but if you kill every last Wagnerian, it will not affect the results of the war,” Hodges said.
But the liberation of Crimea, on the contrary, will turn the tide of the war.
“As long as Russia sits in Crimea, Ukraine will not be able to restore its economy,” the general stressed.
