Russia is not ready for a long-term war due to limited resources, although it demonstrates the opposite, the chief of the Ukrainian Defence Ministry's Main Intelligence Directorate, Kyrylo Budanov, has said in an interview with the Voice of America.
"Russia is not ready for long-term combat operations. I am telling you this as the head of an intelligence agency. They show in every possible way that they are ready for 'a decades-long war', but in reality, their resources are quite limited. Both in time and in volume. And they are well aware of this," Budanov said.
Budanov added that Russia is reducing the number of missiles it uses in its attacks on Ukraine due to a decrease in its stockpile. He argued that, in his opinion, China would not agree to transfer arms to Russia. And the main supplier of weapons to Russia to continue the war against Ukraine is Iran.
In his opinion, over the next three months, active hostilities will continue on all fronts.
