Director of the US Central Intelligence Agency, former American Ambassador to the Russian Federation William Burns believes that Ukraine faces a difficult year in the war against Russian invaders. An American civil servant named the main task of the country.
In an article for Foreign Relations, the head of the CIA writes that this year will be difficult for Ukraine at the front. He noted that the Russian invasion has already become a failure for the aggressor country on many levels, and the goal of the head of the Kremlin to capture Kiev and subjugate the entire country is stupid and illusory, NBN reports.
Former US Ambassador to Moscow recalled that the occupation forces of the Russian Federation suffered huge losses, but the dictator began to restore the defense production of the aggressor country, receiving components from China, and weapons and ammunition from the DPRK and Iran. Putin continues to bet that help from Beijing, Pyongyang and Tehran will help him crush Ukraine and exhaust its Western allies.
Burns believes that Ukraine's main task is to destroy the arrogance of an aggressor president and show the enormous cost of continuing to fight actions for the Russian Federation. To achieve this, the Defense Forces need to not only make progress on the front line, but also have sustainable achievements in the Black Sea. The Ukrainian Armed Forces also need to deliver deeper strikes behind enemy lines.
Earlier, the head of the Lithuanian Foreign Ministry suggested why Kyiv’s Western partners are delaying providing assistance to Ukraine.
