To the question of how to force the enemy to leave, Zaluzhnyi answered: “For this, there are commanders who must think and make the right decisions. Conditions must be created for this, ammunition, equipment, and weapons must be provided. There must be many other circumstances for this, but all this can be done. All this is described in many textbooks. Of course, each case has its own option for certain actions. And I can assure you that Ukrainian soldiers are the people who can do it. They can. The only question is what they need to do it as quickly as possible. We know what is needed for this. We know what is needed to liberate Crimea, what is needed to liberate Donetsk region, Luhansk region, but this is a very, very large amount of work that will not be done quickly.”
In response to a clarifying question whether the Ukrainian military really knows what to do and is doing its job, thanks to which Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions will return to Ukrainian control, the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said: “Of course, absolutely.”
He added that it must be done for Ukrainian children from the occupied territories.
