“As for Ukraine, on an equal footing with Russia, we can fight only with conventional weapons. In this case, we have a good chance to grind the Russian army. Martial capabilities, we almost levelled. But in aircraft and rockets they have the advantage. But we have partners. The West has long sought a country capable of war with Russia. Now the allies will bring us ammunition,” summed up Zhdanov.
