Russia does not plan to limit itself to Donbas but wants the complete destruction of Ukraine
“Once again I would like to reiterate that we were the ones who were the first to say what would happen and how it would happen. So I can tell you irrefutably that Russia’s plans are the total annihilation of Ukraine, the absolute total annihilation.
And [as for] any insinuations about whether Donbas might be enough for them, please don’t even ask me questions like that. We will not trade territory,” Kyrylo Budanov, Chief of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine
