KYIV, Nov 4 (Reuters) – Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskiy denied on Saturday that the war with Russia had reached a “stalemate”, and said more work with allies was needed to strengthen air defences. His comments came days after Ukraine’s Commander-in-chief, General Valery Zaluzhnyi, said in an article the conflict was moving towards a new stage of static and attritional fighting, a phase that could allow Moscow to rebuild its military power. “Today time has passed and people are tired.
