The war in Ukraine will continue not only until the end of 2022, but also in the spring and summer of next year, said Kurt Volker, former US Special Representative for Ukraine in an interview with Ukrainian journalists on Saturday, APA reports citing UNIAN.
"You need to understand that super-hard times are yet to come. But Ukraine has made tremendous progress to get to where it is now. We must prepare that it will be difficult after the winter, because there will be the next stage of hostilities. The war will continue next year in spring and summer”, – emphasized the American diplomat.
"I believe that this winter will be difficult for everyone: Europe, Ukraine and Russia too. But we will provide not only military assistance, but also financial and humanitarian assistance. For the EU, the winter will be difficult due to problems with energy resources. They are preparing for winter. It is very difficult. I recently spoke with a representative of Germany, the big problem is the cost of energy. They are trying to figure out how to survive everything”, – said Volker.
