The White House, even before the start of a full-scale war on the territory of Ukraine, was preparing for a protracted conflict. We hope that weapons and anti-Russian sanctions will play a decisive role.

Thus, the possibility of a protracted conflict was discussed before February. American intelligence was transmitting information about Putin's preparations for an attack. The media write about this, referring to the representative of the State Department.

If diplomacy does not work

Arms and sanctions should force Russia to agree to a diplomatic solution to the war. However, consider the option even if diplomacy doesn't work.

In this case, the Biden administration hopes to prevent Russia from seizing the territory of Ukraine. The White House understands that this could encourage the Kremlin to go to war against our neighbors or even NATO members.

The official notes that for the US, the benchmark is that a consequence of Russia's ability to aspirations will be extremely unfavorable for America itself and very bad for partners and allies.

Compared to the Korean War

The publication's sources and analysts believe that the war in Ukraine could escalate into a low-intensity conflict or repeat the scenario of the Korean War, which lasted from 1950-53, but had no formal end.

Ukraine was also preparing for an attack

The day before, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine was preparing for a possible Russian attack, but at the initial stage of the war, the West was not too willing to support us. The head of state stressed that if he had been heard from the very beginning, Ukraine would have had a better chance of stopping the Russian invasion.

According to the politician, he spoke about the missile program and the necessary air defense systems a year ago . Ukraine also warned about the blocking of the Black Sea by Russia. At the same time, Zelensky acknowledged that the situation is different now. He thanked the partners for their support.

Thus, Zelensky responded to US President Joe Biden. He said that the Ukrainian leader did not respond to the warning about Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
