Financial Times: US officials are pessimistic regarding Ukrainian counterattack strategy


The Financial Times reported that US officials had become pessimistic about the Ukrainian counter-offensive strategy, weeks before US President Joe Biden’s administration sought congressional approval for more funding.

The report echoed an assessment released last week by The Washington Post, which cited unnamed intelligence sources.

In an interview with the German Bild am Sonntag newspaper, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kulibia urged patience, reiterating the call to help with more weapons from the allies.

Kulibia added, “Our success rewards the optimists and destroys the reputation of the skeptics… However, what we need is more long-term capabilities to achieve more short-term results”.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is expected to hold new talks with allies on weapons systems, including fighter jets, after visiting Sweden on Saturday.
