The Russian Federation currently has no plans for waging war in 2025, states Kyrylo Budanov, Chief of the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

Budanov states that the aggressor country, Russia, currently has no plans to wage war in 2025.

"I can tell you one thing: as of now, there are no plans to wage war in 2025 in the Russian Federation. Perhaps, by the end of 2024, if nothing changes, they will adjust this. But so far, they do not have such plans," says the head of the military intelligence.

He also notes that the aggressor country faces certain problems, particularly with resources because war is "very expensive."

"Perhaps it may sound a bit rough, but we are fighting on someone else's account, and they are fighting for their own. And they count their money, although it seems they don't. And very meticulously," adds Budanov.

Forecasts regarding Russia's war in Ukraine

According to the head of the Office of the President, Andriy Yermak, it's unknown when the war in Ukraine with Russian occupiers will end. However, comparing it to a 100-meter sprint, the Armed Forces have covered about 70 meters.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has mentioned that Ukraine is currently in the final stage of the war, which could be the most challenging.

Yet, military experts differ in their opinions on the actual stage of the war.

Budanov previously stated that the war could last a long time because the enemy might refuse to sign any agreements with Ukraine or its allies.

Following this, terrorists may resort to sporadic shelling of the country, but without engaging in significant combat actions.
