Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated in response to a question from an RBC-Ukraine correspondent that no one knows the answer to whether Russia's war against Ukraine will end in 2024.

"I think no one knows the answer," the statement said.

According to Zelenskyy, even those respected individuals, commanders, whether ours or Western ones, do not know the answer.

"When they say that the war will last for many years, they don't know. These are opinions. Opinions often differ from reality," added the president.

President Zelenskyy also discussed the conditions under which Ukraine could end the war earlier and mentioned forecasts that Russians would capture Kyiv within three days.

"These were also opinions. I want to be correct. War, victory, defeat, stagnation - depend on many decisions, many risks, many directions, but mostly on us with you. If we do not lose our resilience, we will end the war earlier. If we do not lose our spirit, we can live with skepticism, but we can also have a country of 'pros.' And I am not ready for that. And I know there are millions like me. We are not ready to give up our country," added the president.

Forecasts regarding the war in Ukraine

As Andriy Yermak, the head of the Office of the President, previously stated, it is currently unknown when the war in Ukraine with Russian invaders will end. However, if compared to a 100-meter race, the Armed Forces have already covered 70 meters.

Recently, the Chief of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense, Kyrylo Budanov, stated that as of now, the Russian Federation has no plans for waging war in 2025.
