MOSCOW: Russia’s Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said the conflict in Ukraine will last a very long time, possibly decades, and will resume after a possible cease-fire. Dmitry Medvedev said this to journalists during his visit to Vietnam. “This conflict is very long, probably decades. This is a new reality of life, new conditions. As long as there are such forces in Kiev, it should be assumed that a three-year ceasefire will be in place,” he said. And there will be two years of fighting, but it will all start again. The trend of Nazi power in Ukraine must end.”
It should be noted that on February 24, 2022, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine, when the Donetsk and Luhansk republics demanded the protection of Ukrainian troops. The Russian Defense Ministry said the campaign was aimed at “demilitarizing and humiliating” Ukraine and fully liberating the Donbass.
Western countries have imposed various sanctions on Russia and are supplying arms to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said any cargo carrying weapons to Ukraine would be a legitimate target for Russia.
