Responding to the explosive report published by the American newspaper New York Times that claimed it was not “in America’s best interest to plunge into an all-out war with Russia” by involving with Ukraine, Ukraine’s former defence minister Andriy Zagorodnyuk, on Sunday asserted: ‘Those who say Ukraine can’t win don’t understand the situation.’ He was responding to the US stance mentioned in the report carried by one of the leading American newspapers.
Zagorodnyuk iterated that “certain intellectuals and authors” are describing the situation as they see it, referring to the Americans. “Their vision is very wrong, but they write it, and we have to respond,” he told The Kyiv Independent.
“First — Ukraine can win, and this, in many ways, depends on how our partners, including the US, are going to be sending weapons, hardware, and munitions,” said Ukraine’s former defense minister.
“And second — we see absolutely no chances for a negotiation process. Russia has not demonstrated the slightest signs of altering its strategic goals regarding Ukraine. They keep pushing for their narratives; they keep waging war and going on the offensive. There’s no point talking about any sort of compromise and negotiations.”
