“I am optimistic because we are confident in what the Ukrainian Armed Forces can do and achieve,” he said.

“Because we are confident in the value of our support. Because we are confident in the unity of Ukraine’s partners, who have the will to persevere to achieve the result we all want.”

“But this should not obscure the fact that both sides are conducting intensive operations and are sometimes fighting for every meter – with infantry and tanks, drones, artillery,” said the German official.

Both sides are trying to use far-reaching means to penetrate deep into the enemy’s territory to destroy logistics and command and control facilities and thereby achieve a psychological effect.

“The most recent example is the sinking of a Russian warship in the Black Sea last week,” Freuding said.
