Russia expects the war to prolong
The Kremlin revealed its expectation that the “hybrid war” between Russia and Western countries over the conflict in Ukraine will “prolong”, more than a year after the start of the Russian military operation there.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters: “If we talk about war in the broadest sense and about confrontation with unfriendly and hostile countries, about this hybrid war, its duration will be prolonged.”
He added that the Russians are rallying around President Vladimir Putin in an “unprecedented” way, and most of them want his goals to be achieved in Ukraine.
We also see an unprecedented rally of Russian society around the president, around the commander-in-chief and the policies he pursues.”
He added, “We see a completely prevailing conviction in our society that all the objectives of the special military operation must and will be achieved.”
