Agil Rustamzade, military analyst, defense and security expert.

In what position is Ukraine currently?

“It could be better to provide weapons and anti-aircraft defense systems on time. Currently, in my opinion, Ukraine has gone half way.”

Agil Rustamzade: “Closer to the New Year, we will be able to more concretely understand the terms of this war, not now.”

The balance should be broken in favor of the Ukrainian army: it should start destroying more weapons than the Russian Federation can supply.

Is there a scenario of a threat to Odesa and Mykolaiv?

“No, there will be no change in the front line.”

“A negotiation scenario is possible if the Russian side agrees to all conditions. The first thing is to remove the nuclear arsenal.”
