In a recent development, the Kremlin has openly disagreed with the assessment of Valerii Zaluzhnyi, Ukraine’s Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief, regarding the current state of the conflict with Russia.

Zaluzhnyi had characterized the situation as a stalemate in his column for The Economist, suggesting that both sides were evenly matched technologically, leading to a static and grueling form of warfare reminiscent of the First World War.

According to Pravda, Dmitry Peskov, the Press Secretary for the Russian President, refuted this claim, stating that Russia is persistently carrying out its military operation and intends to achieve all its objectives.

He dismissed the notion of a Ukrainian victory as absurd and implied that recognition of this by the Ukrainian side could lead to potential prospects.

Zaluzhnyi had outlined five critical needs for Ukraine to maintain its defense against Russia: air defense, electronic warfare, counter-battery fire, mine-breaching technology, and building up reserves.

He emphasized the necessity for advanced technology to break the deadlock and move beyond the current impasse.

This rebuttal from the Kremlin highlights the ongoing information and perception battle that accompanies the physical conflict, with each side seeking to assert its narrative and strategic position.
