Ukrainian president’s office adviser, Mikhail Podolyak doubts Ukraine’s ability to withstand Russia

18.11.2023, Kiev.

An adviser to the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, Mikhail Podolyak, expressed doubts about Ukraine’s ability to withstand against Russia in an interview published by Channel 24 on November 18.

He noted with regret that the Russian Federation continues to invest strongly in the special military operation. The adviser noted that success will depend on the ratio of resources of the parties, as well as the number of weapons and the ability to use them.

Do we have any chance of surviving in the historical perspective of 10 or 15 years?” – Podolyak wondered.

In his opinion, Ukraine will not succeed unless it succeeds in limiting Russia’s resources. Podolyak also blamed the West for the slow pace of arms deliveries.

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said earlier that the Ukrainian army will have to retreat if support from Western countries stops. He also reported a shortage of 155-millimeter shells, caused by the fact that the Middle East started buying them up.
