Ukraine general says the war will be over by the end of the year

Ukrainian Major General Kyrylo Budanov has said he believes his country’s war with Russia will be over by the end of the year.

“The breaking point will be in the second part of August,” he said in an exclusive interview with Sky News. “Most of the active combat actions will have finished by the end of this year.”

“As a result, we will renew Ukrainian power in all our territories that we have lost including Donbas and the Crimea,” he added.

The comments mark the most precise prediction of the end of the war by a senior Ukrainian official.

Budanov, who serves as Ukraine’s head of military intelligence, also said a coup was already underway in Russia to overthrow President Vladimir Putin.

He said Russia’s defeat in Ukraine will “eventually lead to the change of leadership of the Russian Federation. This process has already been launched and they are moving into that way.”…
