Ukraine could win a war against Russia: NATO

May 16, 2022

Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of NATO has said that Russia’s war in Ukraine is not going as planned.

“They failed to take Kyiv. They are pulling back from around Kharkiv. Their major offensive in Donbas has stalled. Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives. Ukraine can win this war,” he said.

Almost three months since Russia invaded Ukraine, it has struggled with low morale, poor strategy, high losses – of troops and equipment – and weak supply lines, he added.

The brutal invasion by Russia is losing momentum,” NATO Deputy-Secretary General Mircea Geoana told reporters. “We know that with the bravery of the Ukrainian people and army, and with our help, Ukraine can win this war.”
