However, a prerequisite for Ukrainian success is that NATO “and other western states” continue to “provide resources at the current pace”. (Pictured: The Himars missile system at a US-Philippine military exercise in Manila in 2016).

  • Ex-CIA chief David Petraeus believes Ukraine can retake all territory.

  • The prerequisite for this is that NATO “and other western countries” continue to “provide resources at the current pace”.

  • Petraeus was commander in chief of US troops in Iraq, NATO forces in Afghanistan and head of US Central Command.

Former CIA chief David Petraeus believes Ukraine’s chances of victory war against Russia by their own account for high. It seems “more and more likely that the Ukrainian armed forces could recapture most, if not all, of the areas that have been occupied by Russian forces in recent months,” Petraeus told the “Bild” newspaper (Saturday edition). He believes that Russia’s military success is “very unlikely”.

However, a prerequisite for a Ukrainian success is that NATO “and other western states” continue to “provide resources at the current pace,” said Petraeus. In that case, according to the general, the Ukrainian armed forces would be able to “take more Russian to stop advances» and to start «taking back the territories seized by the Russians since February 24».

In the meantime, the heads of state and government of the NATO member states and other Western nations have recognized that a Russian victory would be “catastrophic for European security”. They would therefore “take the necessary measures to ensure that Russia cannot succeed”.

Petraeus is one of the most prominent representatives of the military in the USA. He was supreme commander of US troops in Iraq, NATO forces in Afghanistan and head of US Central Command. In 2012, he resigned as head of the CIA for leaking confidential information to his biographer and lover, Paula Broadwell. After an admission of guilt, he was sentenced to a two-year suspended sentence and a $100,000 fine for leaking secrets in 2014.
