Ukraine will return all the territories occupied by Russia. Crimea will be returned by force and diplomacy, the Head of the Ukrainian Defence Intelligence Kyrylo Budanov said in an interview with Liga.net.
"Crimea will be returned in a combined way: by both force and diplomacy. But nothing will happen without force. Our units will go there with weapons in their hands," he said.
The Head of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine noted that he would advise Ukrainians to go on vacation to Crimea in the summer of 2023: "This is Ukrainian pearl, which has been waiting for Ukrainian tourists for a long time".
Budanov added that since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the number of Ukrainian agents in Russia has increased, so access to information of various levels has also increased. There have been no traitors detected in the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine since February 24. However, there were cases of official negligence, for example, when some information was sent by messenger.
