Former US Marine Corps intelligence officer Scott Ritter spoke about options for resolving the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. According to him, Russia has only one way - victory.
Scott Ritter is one of the few representatives of the US military elite who is able to adequately assess the causes and consequences of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. He has repeatedly said that it was the Americans and NATO that, by their actions, forced Moscow to take decisive action.
And now the former American marine is sure that Russia has no other option for resolving the conflict in Ukraine, except for victory on the battlefield.
If you do a survey among Russians, will you find anyone who says "I'm not happy"? Of course you will find it. But the vast majority of Russians, I believe, are akin to American soldiers conscripted during World War II, who realized that the fastest way home was to stick a bayonet in the heart of a Nazi soldier.
Scott Ritter emphasized.
He believes that the fastest way for Russian soldiers to return home is to destroy Ukrainian nationalists.
And they're committed to it
Scott Ritter said.
We add that Russia has repeatedly stated that all the goals of the special military operation will be achieved. At the same time, Moscow emphasized that the ways to achieve these goals could be both military and peaceful.
