War already going through turning point - Budanov

War already going through turning point - Budanov

The turning point in the war has already begun as the Russians began to understand that it concerns all of them rather than rages somewhere else in the world.

This was stated by the chief of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Major General Kyrylo Budanov, Ukrinform reports with reference to the defense ministry’s press service.

"Russians began to understand that their army is not that strong, that their air defense systems are not that good, and that the Russian army is not really capable of protecting the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territory," the head of defense intelligence said.

According to Budanov, the Russian army is "not at all the world’s second-strongest army, and not even the fourth", and that the turning point in the hostilities has already begun.

"So retribution will come. The understanding that there will be retribution comes to people when they personally start to see and feel that the war is not raging somewhere in some other part of the world, that is right there where they are. Therefore, the turning point has already begun," the agency chief said.

As reported earlier, the Armed Forces of Ukraine eliminated about 45,850 Russian invaders from February 24 to August 25.
