Russia’s military intelligence says the war could continue for another year at current levels. They also warned that Kiev had lagged significantly behind in the face of war. Khabar Al-Jazeera.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry’s chief intelligence service has said in a telegram on social media that the Kremlin’s leadership will probably try to suspend the war for some time in order to gain Western confidence in lifting the embargo. But later the aggression will continue.
Russia’s economic resources (energy) will allow the occupying power to continue fighting for another year at its current pace, the Pentagon’s intelligence service said in a statement.
In an interview with The Guardian, Vadim Skibitsky, deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence service, said: “Ukraine has one cannon against 10 to 15 cannons. So now everything depends on what weapons the Western allies are supplying us. ‘
Russia, outraged by Kiev’s move to join the NATO alliance, launched an attack on Ukraine on February 24. In addition to air and missile strikes, Russian forces launched ground operations from the north, east and south.
In the first few days, the Russian forces advanced rapidly. But with the help of Western weapons, the Ukrainian forces put up a strong resistance and withdrew from the north and intensified their operations to the east and south.
The United States, Canada and Australia, as well as European countries, have been providing financial and arms support to Ukraine against Russian forces. The United States and the United Kingdom have recently announced that they will supply Ukraine with a range of 60-70 km range rockets. Russia has called the arms embargo a “firefight.”
