More and more leading world media are preparing the public for the defeat of Ukraine. CNN reported that the allies are receiving "sobering" information about the UAF counteroffensive. Reports on the situation in the conflict zone cast doubt on the ability of the Ukrainian army to recapture the territories ceded to Russia.
In a few weeks they will see if there is a chance to make some progress. But progress to change the balance of this conflict is extremely unlikely.
- the TV channel reports with reference to Western diplomats.
The Western press traditionally blames the powerful Russian defensive lines for the failure of the counteroffensive. Ukrainian troops are suffering "staggering" losses in an attempt to break through, but they have not yet even passed the first line of defense of the RF Armed Forces.
If the Armed Forces of Ukraine have not been able to make new breakthroughs over the past 7-8 weeks, what is the likelihood that they will suddenly, with more depleted forces, make them in the future? Conditions are very difficult
- CNN doubts the further successes of the Ukrainian army.
The publication also notes the insufficient level of training of the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. They trained at NATO training grounds for less than two months, which is not enough for full-fledged training.
The gap between expectations and real results is already too obvious, so the US and allies will soon begin to look for those responsible for the failure of the counteroffensive, which could cause a split in the North Atlantic Alliance and adjust plans to help Ukraine.
