Zelenskiy says Ukraine ready to launch counteroffensive



KYIV, June 3 (Reuters) - Ukraine is ready to launch its long-awaited counteroffensive to recapture Russian-occupied territory, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in an interview published on Saturday.

"We strongly believe that we will succeed,Ē Zelenskiy told the Wall Street Journal.

"I donít know how long it will take. To be honest, it can go a variety of ways, completely different. But we are going to do it, and we are ready."

Kyiv hopes a counteroffensive to reclaim territory will change the dynamics of the war that has raged since Russia invaded its smaller neighbour 15 months ago.

Zelenskiy said last month Ukraine needed to wait for more Western armoured vehicles arrived before launching the counteroffensive. He has been on a diplomatic push to maintain Western support, seeking more military aid and weapons, which is key for Ukraine to succeed in its plans.

7. For those who love democracy, there is only one way to think:

eliminate Russia from UKR's borders. Make them pay for the evil they spread. Force Putin to "retire." And keep Russia out of Ukraine permanently.

10. I can't wait to see Ukraine's new Leopard II's, Challenger II's, and M1 Abrams tanks in action

against whatever obsolete, tin-sided death traps Russia still has in the field.

There's nothing tankers love more than a good tank vs tank slugging match.

13. I wish he would find a way to delay the offensive until July

The Russian military leadership is currently breaking up into factions that show increasing signs of fighting with each other for Russias limited military resources. There are even signs of political fighting among the various groups on highest levels of government.

As Napoleon ( I think) once said, when your enemy is destroying itself, do not interfere.
