Quote: "Ukraine has already won. Everyone in the world already feels it and we understand it. Yes, it will be difficult for a certain period, but globally it will not change anything...
I think you have seen that over the last three months, the rhetoric of all Kremlin propagandists has changed dramatically.
First, they started to cautiously criticise their leadership, then – the top generals, and now they have reached the point where [their – ed.] victory is out of the question, [they’re thinking about how] just not to lose, but everyone understands that this is impossible. Their defeat is already obvious.
Once again, there will be some more difficult times, but the Russian defeat is a foregone conclusion and they themselves are well aware of it."
Details: According to Budanov, Ukraine, according to his preliminary forecasts, "is moving on schedule".
Budanov said that there have always been two warring camps in Russia: those whose views are more liberal and those who support the pro-Russian dictatorship.
According to the head of intelligence, Russia is currently divided not only into liberals and non-liberals, but the invaders are starting to split on the principle of "which group will come to power next".
He also urged people not to hope for a massive internal conflict with Russian rallies in large cities, because "Russia is not that kind of a country".
