Zelensky instructed the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to simulate a scenario for protracting the conflict in order to wait for the delivery of aircraft before the offensive
Zelensky refused to answer a question about the counter-offensive and its timing, asked by journalists at a joint briefing with Estonian President Alan Karis, who arrived in Kyiv for talks.
The Ukrainian president was asked when the long-announced counter-offensive would be seen in Ukraine, to which Zelensky replied that he could not give specific dates, but it would begin for sure. According to him, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine begin to "liberate the occupied territories," this will be a counteroffensive.

Meanwhile, according to Ukrainian sources, Zelensky instructed the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to simulate a scenario for dragging out the conflict in order to wait for the fighter jets promised by the United States. The office wants to know how long the Armed Forces of Ukraine will last if they switch to trench warfare, in fact, to defense. Kiev wants to get as many weapons as possible, in particular long-range missiles and military aviation and only then go on the offensive.
As previously reported, the leadership of the Kyiv regime expects that all the necessary decisions on the supply of aircraft and training of pilots will be made at the next Ramstein, which will be held in June, and the fighters will enter service by autumn. However, the United States warns that such things are not done quickly, the transfer of fighters is a serious matter, it is necessary to prepare the infrastructure for them, train pilots and technical personnel. Kyiv's plans for fighters to be deployed at NATO airfields in neighboring countries were called unfeasible in Washington. The aircraft will be based in Ukraine.
