Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, said on Twitter on March 23 that Ukraine will fight for freedom and de-occupy its territories as long as necessary.
"The latest information trend is talk about the 'only chance' and perhaps the last opportunity for the defense forces of Ukraine to launch a counteroffensive. Our offensive will continue until the borders of 1991 and, like the struggle for freedom, is not limited by time," wrote Danilov.
The opinion that Ukraine will have only one attempt at a counteroffensive this year, as there may be a lack of resources for new large-scale operations in the West, was expressed by Czech President Petr Pavel in an interview with the Polish publication Rzeczpospolita, published on March 19.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly stated that they are determined to de-occupy all Ukrainian territories seized since 2014, including Crimea.
On February 28, the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, announced that the Ukrainian Armed Forces were preparing to resume active deoccupation. "We are preparing the return of our soldiers to active actions for the liberation of our land. We remember this just goal of ours and are getting closer to its realization every day. Ukraine will be free. All of Ukraine," Zelenskyi said.
