Ukraine's objectives, to reclaim all land lost since the start of the war (and presumably Crimea as well). I have seen no evidence to suggest the plan has changed.
The question is if the Ukranian population still aligns with those goals. Zelenskyy himself cannot be faltering in his objectives or otherwise, his credibility would be at stake.
It remains to be seen how the elections will turn out this year in Ukraine. Anything else than a decisive approval for Zelenskyy would give Russia the affirmation that they are on the right track to win the war of attrition.
I'm also curios if Zaluzhnyi will run for the presidential office. He supposedly is a popular figure in Ukraine.
Speaking about the Western support the countries have proclaimed that they would support Ukraine till they win whereas winning is a term not frequently used anymore.
And hardly anyone in Europe is willing to do their part with the countries adjacent to Ukraine carrying the heaviest load.
And what the supporters say contrasts their actions. It was pretty obvious that they could not supply Ukraine with sufficient material, even NATOs own stocks are depleted and in a war scenario they would only last a couple of hours.
