Arestovich: Ukraine has seized the strategic initiative in the war

The strategic initiative in the war passed to the Ukrainian army. This was stated by Advisor to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Aleksey Arestovich in a conversation with Russian human rights activist Mark Feygin.

“In this war, paradoxically, the transition of the strategic initiative to Ukraine was marked by two news. Three, in fact, but I won’t say anything about the third. The first is the return of McDonald’s to Ukraine. Russian regiment in Saki airfield," he said.

In the future, it may happen that not the Russian but the Ukrainian command will dictate what is happening with the objects and the territory held, Arestovich believes.

"The Ukrainian army proved back in 2014 that we can liberate cities without killing the civilian population. Simply by forcing the enemy to leave. Just like we liberated Bucha, Gostomel, and Irpin. We just started to bypass from left and right, and and they, in order not to be surrounded, urgently withdrew troops. Without an assault. Something similar could happen with Energodar, with Kherson, and many other places," the adviser to the head of the President's Office noted.
