Ukraine seeks to end conflict with Russia this year: defense minister’s advisor

According to Yuriy Sak, an adviser to the Ukrainian defense minister, Kiev and its allies hope to end the Russia-Ukraine war this year, according to the Interfax-Ukraine news agency.

It is “our common job to guarantee that this war ends on the territory of Ukraine this year,” Sak was quoted as saying at the Ukraine-France forum.

He encouraged his fellow Ukrainians to have faith in their country’s “ability and position to defeat the enemy this year.”

The number of servicemen in the Ukrainian Armed Forces has increased from around 200,000 at the beginning of the war to almost 1 million, Sak added.
