This year, there is a real possibility that the Ukrainian Armed Forces will successfully de-occupy Crimea, as the Russians are running out of necessary equipment, said Minister of Defense of Great Britain Ben Wallace in an interview with Washington Post, APA reports citing Censor.NЕТ.

The minister said that Putin probably does not understand the scale of the problems facing the Russian Federation, but still believes in the possibility of defeating Ukraine. According to the minister, Putin will continue to use his manpower to fight until the last moment of collapse.
