MADRID, 27 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Valeri Zaluzhni, has hinted at the start of the much talked about Ukrainian counter-offensive to recover the territories taken by Russia in the framework of the war, which began more than fifteen months ago.
Zaluzhni has shared on his official Telegram channel a video of Ukrainian soldiers preparing for war while reciting a prayer with overtones of war. "It's time to give yours back," the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Army headlines the publication.
This message from Zaluzhni comes in a context marked by statements by the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Oleksii Danilov, who assured this Saturday that the Ukrainian troops are already prepared to launch the counteroffensive.
The Ukrainian authorities have commented in recent weeks on the start of the counteroffensive, although the adviser to the Presidential Office, Mikhailo Podoliak, warned that this operation was not a one-day job, but rather a matter of time.
On the other hand, Ukrainian military representatives have reiterated on successive occasions the need for the allied powers to deliver Western weapons in order to facilitate the work of Ukrainian troops in their attempt to expel Russia.
After getting the majority of European states to commit to sending battle tanks, kyiv has now set combat planes as its main demand. Although its allies have opened up to training pilots, sending fighters still seems a long way off, although it is true that Poland and Slovakia have already supplied Soviet-made MiG-29 jets.
