Reznikov believes that in winter the intensity of hostilities will decrease.

The Ukrainian armed forces will take advantage of a possible break in hostilities during the winter to train and reinforce personnel. The Ukrainian Armed Forces will be replenished with thousands of new soldiers who are currently being trained in the UK.

This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksiy Reznikov, reports Reuters.

Reznikov believes hostilities will slow down in winter, so Ukraine should take advantage of the break.
