Chaly predicts that Vladimir Putin will try to attack NATO countries to demonstrate their inability to respond promptly. "These aren't just my assumptions; they're based on alliance information," he discussed during an interview with the Ukrainian TV station, Espresso TV, referencing his source in NATO.

He believes that NATO is just beginning to shift its strategy from deterrence to prevention. "I suspect that Russia will likely target Estonia. Take Narva, for instance, where significant agents have been dispatched over the recent decades, and there's a strong sentiment from Russia," Chaly summarized.

Zelensky: Putin won't cease until he obliterates Ukraine

On Wednesday, during his visit to Vilnius, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the current state of affairs in Ukraine, following his meeting with Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda. He emphasized that Putin won't halt the invasion until he decimates Ukraine.

"His intentions are evident. He aims to annex our entire country. Coupled with the uncertainty from partners concerning financial and military aid for Ukraine and a swift response, it only bolsters the Russian Federation," Zelensky stated during a press conference after his meeting with the Lithuanian leader.

Zelensky cautioned that Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Moldova could be Russia's next targets. "The truth is, it will occur only if we don't resist. I don't know if you're aware, but discussions regarding the independence of Finland and Uzbekistan have emerged amongst the Russians" - pointed out Zelensky"
