Quote: "We have a new phase of war, and that is a fact.


...Winter as a whole is a new phase of war."

Details:  AP emphasised that there is a renewed threat of Russian air attacks on cities, targeting energy infrastructure facilities and the civilian population, in the winter. In addition, the situation is complicated by freezing temperatures and barren fields that leave the soldiers exposed.

"That is why a winter war is difficult," Zelenskyy added.

AP cited Zelenskyy, who stressed that Ukraine would not surrender


  • In early November, Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, said he believed that the war with Russia was moving to a new stage: "positional" warfare with static and attritional fighting. To win it, Ukraine needs advanced technologies.
