07:40 01 October Kyiv, Ukraine

In the coming winter, the war on the territory of Ukraine will largely subside, and in the spring Ukrainian defenders will enter the borders of Ukraine in 1991. This was announced on Friday, September 30, by the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Kirill Budanov, on the air of the national telethon.

"It will end soon. Somewhere at the end of May, I told how the algorithm would work. I then said that June would not be good for us, we would lose a little. In July there will be a stagnation, in August we will begin movements to restore the territories. In winter, the war will largely subside. And now, after the winter, the end of this conflict will begin, with the first stage reaching the borders as of 1991," Budanov said.

The head of the GUR also commented on the words of the American general that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will enter the Crimea in the summer: "I rely on the facts that I know. I believe that it will not be in the summer, but until the end of spring. Perhaps a little earlier, you can make mistakes in days, but not in algorithms," Budanov said.

Also, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense said that now there is no reason to believe that Russia will launch a nuclear strike on Ukraine.

"As of now, there is no reason to believe that a nuclear strike in the near future can be inflicted on the territory of Ukraine," he said.

He also added that one should not be afraid of mobilization in Russia, because in fact "this is a gift" for Ukraine, since "it will only speed up the process, which can no longer be stopped."

Earlier it was reported that Ukraine is applying for NATO membership.

Recall that the OP confirmed the capture of the military of the Russian Federation into the boiler.
