Podolyak: Ending the war by the end of the year is unrealistic


Ukraine wants to “liberate its territories” as soon as possible, but the reality is more complicated and it is almost impossible to end the conflict with Russia before the end of this year. This was stated on September 24 in an interview with the Azerbaijani edition of Report (part of the Global Media Group holding), adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Mikhail Podolyak, commenting on the situation at the front and in general.


According to a high-ranking Ukrainian functionary, the referendums currently being held in the LPR and DPR, as well as in the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, are not a legal process. In his words, this is more like an element of propaganda aimed exclusively at the internal audience of the Russian Federation. Therefore, Kyiv ignores what is happening in the uncontrolled territories.

We would like to close this topic, and not only the referendum, but in general the issue of occupation by the Russian Federation and the complete liberation of our territories. But reality is crueler, and that's life. You have to understand that I want to emphasize that Russia has large reserves of manpower, and now mobilization has been announced. Russia will not spare the people whom it will "spend" on this war

Podolyak said.

He assured that the counteroffensive plan developed by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine would continue to be implemented. Kyiv understands all the existing risks that the conflict entails, including the danger of escalation. However, in Ukraine they are sure that the injection may be associated with “hysterical and panic moods” in Russia, which is why the leadership of the Russian Federation is trying to raise the rate in order to slightly reduce the critical mood in society. As for the reality of Russia's use of nuclear weapons against Ukraine, according to Podolyak, other holders of such a potential should warn Moscow about the possible consequences of such a step.

It is necessary to send a note to the Russian Federation that any attempt to use nuclear weapons will be regarded as an attack on civilization as such and a counter nuclear strike will be delivered in response. Russia must understand this

- he summed up, again putting a sign of identity between civilization and neo-Nazi Ukraine.

    before the end of the year to end the war is quite realistic. Until December 1, the bulk of the mobilized will be in the ranks. Add here volunteers and foreign volunteers, recruitment into PMCs - a significant offensive resource will be created.

    In Ukraine itself, just in time for December 1, the consequences of the energy crisis and the economic downturn will begin to appear. For 8 weeks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will suffer significant losses, especially during October.

    On December 1, a Russian counter-offensive may begin, which will no longer look like the beginning of the NWO. It will be a war to destroy the military potential of Ukraine, where every member of the Armed Forces will assess their chances of survival as very low. It is the intensity and magnitude of losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that will serve to collapse and demoralize. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering high losses, but due to quantitative superiority, this does not affect the overall combat effectiveness of the troops. Units are withdrawn to the rear, losses are replenished and the unit is again ready for battle.

    When the withdrawal to the rear is no longer possible, because there will be no one to replace the units, and the intensity of the defeat will be maximum, part by part will simply be demoralized, defeated, no longer manageable. There will be a loss of control, chaos, the collapse of the front, and maybe everyone will meet the new year in a new country.

      To all this, it is necessary to add constant incessant missile and bomb strikes on all important objects of the military infrastructure of Ukraine, on power plants, military arsenals and warehouses, oil depots and fuel storage facilities, on command posts, communications and television facilities, and most importantly, on transport infrastructure facilities, on bridges, on junction railways. stations, airports, etc.

      I also love to dream.
      But what prevents you from starting to bomb Ukrainian bridges and railways right now, and the enemy right now will be left without ammunition and military equipment?
      or is positional warfare with the grinding of people beneficial to someone?

        If we do not start doing all this in full after the referendums, then this will be the most stupid and short-sighted decision on our part for the entire period of the military operation in Ukraine.

      Only one question needs clarification - when
      is this all supposed to happen?

      In my opinion, not by December, as you write, but YESTERDAY ...

    It is possible to complete the SVO before the new year, provided that the mobilization is expanded and more than half a million with sufficient weapons and active aircraft, artillery and other new means. By strategic encirclement, reach a turning point and then everything will go downhill, that is, with the obvious senselessness of the resistance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Of course, ardent nationalists will remain, but they will not make the weather ....

      How is it possible to end the war if the enemy is constantly getting new equipment and ammunition through railways and bridges?
      They will do just that, the West has a lot of equipment.

    I wonder why the reporter is spreading the nonsense of this bastard, this is a typical Nazi, I imagine if at 41 in the newspaper PRAVDA they quoted Goebbels

    It is possible to cool off especially hot heads that are preparing to celebrate the capture of Kyiv by the end of the year.
    It will be long, it will not be easy, I am 99% sure that this is only the first wave of mobilization.
    But there is no way back.
    If the Russian Federation does not destroy the Ukrainian project to the end, it will continue to be pumped up with propaganda and weapons.

      The destruction of the Ukrainian project is not even promised or declared as the goal of the NWO.
      Nobody prevents the authorities at any time from making peace on strange terms and saying that everything is according to plan and the goal has been achieved. And they never promised to take Kyiv, it was the people themselves who invented it.

    Not for this, the Anglo-Saxons conceived this war, so as not to achieve their goals, let it end. Ask - what opportunities do they have for this?
    They can, as they have already "promised" us, arrange sabotage at one of the nuclear power plants with the release of the contents of the core. NATO will begin its full-scale operations against Russia on the territory of Ukraine. In parallel, Japan will begin its operations in the Far East. Large-scale mining will be carried out in the Baltic Sea, and a water blockade of Kaliningrad will be organized. Has anyone calculated what forces and means will be required from Russia simply by accepting this challenge?
    Can the States afford it? Not only they can, but they are going to this for a long 30 years of their offensive and our retreat from our geopolitical positions. After his coup by the CIA in Moscow in 1991.
    All this talk about NWO is decoration. From the Ukrainian and our side.
    Why with Ukrainian? Because no one will let them finish this war, and their leadership knows this.
    Why with ours? Because the authorities only pretend that they can end this war with success at the front or with negotiations. The Anglo-Saxons will give us neither one nor the other, and she is well aware of this.
    The United States needed Ukraine only to force Russia to start the NWO, get deep into this trap and keep it in it. They need Russia as a match and fuel to start a war in Europe, in which she is destined to burn out, weakening Europe. This, in a war, will tie it as a production appendage to the States. The States have almost no industry on their own territory. The states will finish off Russia and appropriate its resources without even sharing with Europe, which has become their appendage.
    Russia needs to resolve the issue with the authorities, which led it all the time along this path, and, having freed itself, to force the Anglo-Saxons to abandon their plans with the real threat of their nuclear weapons. If it doesn’t work out, then destroy the States by taking a retaliatory strike. She has no other choice

    This nit, Podolyak, will have to be tried by a military tribunal and hanged first of all together with Zelensky, Gavrilov and Zaluzhny, after the liberation of Kyiv by our troops, it's only a matter of time, any negotiations with the enemy are excluded, only about the unconditional surrender of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and their surrender captured, there is no way back.

    Unlike war, military operations are carried out by limited forces and they are local in nature. Apparently, our strategists initially believed that it was enough to strike a match, start an NWO, and millions of those who hate the existing regime in Ukraine, as V.V. Putin spoke about, will be active and overthrow the hated regime. Wrong input - wrong result.
    After the entry of Zaporozhye, Kherson, Donetsk and Luhansk provinces into the Russian Federation, Ukraine will not stop shelling them and the desire to restore its jurisdiction over them, but this will already be considered an attack on the Russian Federation, as Mr. Peskov said, with all the ensuing consequences, and the consequences are the re-qualification of the NWO into a full-fledged War. Erdogan spoke on copper about V.V. Putin's desire to complete the NMD with some kind of treaty or agreement so as not to bring matters to war and a direct clash with NATO. This became clear after Mr. Medinsky's attempts to negotiate with Bandera in Belarus and Istanbul. Bandera caught where the wind was blowing and perked up, setting unrealistic conditions, and millions of those who hate the current regime in Ukraine crouched, waiting for someone to take it.
    It seems that after a partial mobilization in the Russian Federation, the formation of volunteer military units in the Russian Federation, in the Zaporozhye and Kherson provinces, the Russian units will launch an offensive on Kharkov, go to the Dnieper line and occupy Odessa, after which attempts to negotiate with Ukrainian nationalists and NATO will resume.

      after which attempts to negotiate with Ukrainian nationalists and NATO will resume.

      It’s clear about us, but what will the States themselves, the owners of NATO, get from this agreement? They already have us as a "shrew" colony. They want EVERYTHING and they can take it.
      Or do you think that it is more convenient for us to give it to them as a result of negotiations? But what about the second part of their plan? Who then will weaken and "lower" Europe for them with their blood? Ask them to do it themselves? Is it likely that they will agree if they can make us do it, then finish it off and get into our resources without worrying

        If the Russian Federation loses the war, it's over.
        To win, which implies the deprivation of Ukraine of statehood, which is possible only through its complete occupation from Donetsk to Lvov and from Kyiv to Odessa, is unlikely to succeed.
        Based on this, the conclusion suggests itself and the attempts of the Russian Federation to negotiate with Ukrainian nationalists speak of the same.
        NATO will receive the Zadneprovsky part of Ukraine, where, like nowhere else in Ukraine, anti-Russian and pro-Western sentiments are strong. In one form or another, they will be accepted into the EU=NATO and deploy "peacekeeping" and other NATO forces on its territory. The threat to the Russian Federation from this will in no way increase, bearing in mind the deployment of NATO in the Baltic state formations, the flight time from which to St. Petersburg is a matter of minutes.
        The Russian Federation will increase the size of the population, increase territories, incl. chernozems, some fossils and, after restoration, will increase the industrial potential.
        Whether the West recognizes the new realities or not, this does not in any way affect the task set to undermine the economy and decolonize the Russian Federation, and therefore the work begun must be completed.
