TRUTH PUKE’S TAKE: The New York Times report highlights the risks that Ukraine faces with its upcoming counteroffensive against Russia, despite receiving significant support from its Western allies.
Kiev’s backers would likely press for negotiations if the counteroffensive fails to make significant gains, which could potentially lead to a loss of Western support for Ukraine. The report also notes that Kiev’s goal of recapturing all the territories it claims as its own may not be achievable, even with Western aid. The article cites Ukrainian battlefield losses, heavy expenditure of munitions, and Russian troops’ ability to dig in and prevent the enemy from using Western-taught warfare as challenges facing Ukraine.
Furthermore, the US and its allies have largely exhausted their military inventories after flooding Kiev with military aid, making it unlikely that they will be able to provide significant additional support in the near future. While Russia is ramping up pressure against Ukraine, the window for Kiev to make significant gains may not remain open indefinitely. Politico has previously reported that the White House is preparing to mitigate the fallout from a potentially poorly-executed Ukrainian counteroffensive.
