If fighting continues into winter, reclaiming territories will become more difficult/OP
Head of the Office Andriy Yermak said that the next few months will be decisive for Ukraine on the battlefield. Dragging the war into winter could benefit the Russian forces.
He explained that if the fighting continues until winter, then it will become more and more difficult to return the territory.
Ukraine plans to liberate 100% of the occupied territories in the South
Andriy Yermak stressed that Ukraine will take all possible measures to get out of the “dead end” by winter. Ukrainian troops are now intensifying their counterattacks in the south. Their goal is to retake 100% of the territory that the Russians have captured.
In this war, we will never compromise our independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty, he said.
Yermak also called on the US and Western allies to impose additional sanctions against Russia, as the Kremlin continues to use energy exports as leverage to lift sanctions.
