Ukraine’s Defense Forces have accumulated enough strength and weapons to start the de-occupation of Ukrainian territories that are temporarily seized by Russia.

The relevant statement was made by Chief of the Main Intelligence Directorate at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry, Maj. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov in an interview with Japan’s NHK, an Ukrinform correspondent reports, referring to the Main Intelligence Directorate at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry.

“Many civilians are still under Russian occupation, and time cannot be wasted anymore. We already have minimum weapons and other equipment stocks in place. I can only say that it will start soon,” Budanov told.

The head of the Ukrainian intelligence noted that the country would need significant stocks to continue the operation.

According to Budanov, the G7 Summit in Japan’s Hiroshima, where Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky took part in person, will allow for control over progress in the accelerated pace of arms supplies from international partners.
