Zelenskyy about the war in Ukraine

Just recently, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, stated that the war in Ukraine will not end as quickly as we would like. Because this is not a movie, but "daily hard work", behind which the lives of Ukrainians and the military stand, and which takes time.

In an interview with The Economist, Zelensky said Russian dictator Vladimir Putin did not understand that he would lose in a long war. At the same time, he does not want to think about a long war, but he is preparing for it.

In addition, before that, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that Ukraine is ready "to fight for a long time without losing people." According to him, the main thing is to "minimize the victims, as with the example of Israel."

In June 2022, the Ukrainian President declared his desire for Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine to end by the end of the year, before the onset of winter.
