"The most important thing that we have managed to achieve during this period of time was to stop the enemy. And trust me - they have stopped because, inter alia, they saw a match for them. Putin will not be able to walk through the territory of Ukraine so easy. They will no longer be able to avoid heavy losses. This is our success. We have created efficient army and we will make it capable to discourage anyone to attack us next year," the defense minister said.
