Details: Serhiy Shaptala, the Ukrainian Chief of the General Staff, Mykola Oleshchuk, the Air Force Commander, and Oleksiy Neizhpapa, the Navy Commander, also participated in the conversation.

Quote: “We discussed the importance of continuing to search for technological solutions in gaining an advantage over the enemy in the air, in terms of remote mine clearance and firing on enemy targets.

We also touched upon the issues of strengthening air defence capabilities, training our servicemen and restoring the combat capability of our units.”


  • In an interview with The Economist, Zaluzhnyi stated, in particular, that the situation at the front has reached a stalemate, when neither side can advance because they are technologically equipped at the same level. The general says the situation reminds him of the First World War.
