Conflict in Ukraine to last for long time, possibly decades: Medvedev

Conflict in Ukraine to last for long time, possibly decades: Medvedev

Moscow, May 26 (UNI) Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said Thursday that the Ukraine conflict would persist for a very long time, possibly for decades, and would repeat after a possible ceasefire.
"This conflict is for a very long time. It is all probably for decades. It is a new reality, new living conditions. As long as there is such power there [in Kiev], there will be, let's say, three years of ceasefire, two years of conflict, and then everything will happen again. The very nature of Nazi power in Kiev must be destroyed," Medvedev told journalists during his visit to Vietnam.
Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022, in response to calls by the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics for protection from Ukrainian troops. The Russian Defense Ministry said the operation, which targets Ukrainian military infrastructure, aims to "demilitarize and denazify" Ukraine and to completely liberate Donbas.
Western countries have imposed numerous sanctions on Russia and have been supplying weapons to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said any cargo that contains weaponry for Ukraine will become a legitimate target for Russia.
