In on-the-ground war, a deadlock has arisen due to delays in the supply of equipment. However, maritime operations have yielded positive results, states President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

"As far as the war on the ground is concerned, there is a stalemate, that’s a fact because there have been delays with equipment, and delays mean mistakes," stated Zelenskyy.

He also emphasized that Ukraine is fighting terrorists who have one of the largest armies in the world, so our army needs modern technical equipment.

The President of Ukraine also highlighted that maritime operations have yielded positive results.

"Russia has lost a lot of ships, and we’ve managed to set up a grain corridor in the Black Sea, so this pragmatic part of the operation that impacts the economy has been carried out positively," he added.

What preceded this

The recent divergence of views between the U.S. and Ukraine on how to conduct the war with Russia has attracted attention. According to The New York Times, American military officials believe that Ukraine should focus on defense rather than launching counterattacks. However, Ukraine aims to transition to an offensive stance to achieve more favorable conditions for negotiations.

According to reports, the U.S. is trying to prepare Ukraine for the possibility that the amount of aid it receives may be reduced.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, recently wrote an article for The Economist. He noted that the war is entering a new phase - a positioning stage characterized by protracted battles. Zaluzhnyi suggested that the war may have reached an impasse.

Military expert Serhii Hrabskyi also pointed out that the situation on the front is not at a deadlock, as Ukrainian forces are effectively defending on various fronts, and the dynamics of the battles are very high.
