War may break out again beyond the east and south: Naiev stated the condition and talked about Ukraine's preparation
The commander of the Joint Forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Serhii Naiev, has warned that the war could again extend beyond the east and south of Ukraine if Russia continues to increase weapons production and improve technology with the help of its allies. The Ukrainian military is preparing for such a scenario by building defensive lines, mining areas, and training personnel.
Naiev made the statement in an interview with the American TV channel ABC News. "We are preparing for this (Russian invasion from the north - Ed.). We are building defenses, laying mines, and training our forces," he said.
At the same time, Serhii Naiev noted that technology is the key to this war.
"Technology is crucial. A target that required 100 shells using old Soviet technology now requires much less, and it is measured in numbers up to ten, so technology always outweighs quantity," said the lieutenant general.
According to the commander, if the West reduces its assistance, it will hit Ukraine's defense capabilities, but it will continue to fight with what it has.
"We understand that there is a war for resources. The Russian Federation gets its resources through the axis of evil - North Korea, and Iran. And we, with the help of our partners, receiving air defense systems from them, are opposing Russia with their resources. We need to understand that the reduction in aid will hit our defense capabilities. But we will fight with what we have," Naiev said.
As OBOZ.UA reported earlier, the commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine showed the work of mobile air defense firing groups in the Sumy sector. According to him, hundreds of such groups repel the raids of the "Shahed", being in full combat readiness around the clock.
