Russia-Ukraine crisis could be over by May: Zelenskyy’s adviser

Kyiv, March 15 : Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser to the Ukrainian president’s chief of staff, said that he believes that the Ukraine crisis will get over by early May when Russia runs out of resources to attack its neighbour, Khaleej Times reported on Tuesday. Talks have been going on between Kyiv and Moscow have so far produced very few results other than opening of several humanitarian corridors out of besieged Ukrainian cities. Arestovich himself is not directly involved in these talks. Arestovich said that the prolonging of the conflict will depend on how much resources the Kremlin was willing to commit to the campaign and expressed the hope that by May Russia should run out of resources forcing it to agree to a peace deal. Arestovich also said that in another scenario Russia could send fresh conscripts after a month of training to the battlefront. The crisis in Ukraine began on February 24 when Russian President Vladimir Putin launched what he called a “special military operation,” the biggest attack on a European state since World War Two.
