According to him, the intensity of shelling of positions of Russian fighters by the Ukrainian Armed Forces has already decreased by “more than 50%,” and the Ukrainian troops themselves are experiencing a shortage of ammunition.

“The SVO, I believe, will end in September of this year at the most... By the elections in America, aid to Ukraine will dry up; in any case, it should have decreased,” RIA Novosti quotes Alaudinov.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed his openness to dialogue on Ukraine subject to Russia’s conditions and taking into account current realities.

The Russian leader also noted that Russia has not yet achieved the goals of the special military operation, since one of them is denazification.
