Ukraine's counteroffensive is just beginning, while Ukrainian Armed Forces have already made significant progress – Blinken
U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that Ukraine's counteroffensive against the Russian occupiers is just beginning, but Ukrainian forces are already made “significant progress”.
Blinken stressed that the UAF offensive “was provided with significant support from the United States with the necessary means”, but “first of all, it is the result of the extraordinary courage and resilience of the Ukrainians” .
Blinken said this at a press conference in Mexico City.
“What they (the Ukrainians – ed.) did was very methodically planned,” Blinken said.< /p>
According to him, the Ukrainian offensive “has one clear goal: to return the lands seized as a result of the aggression these of Russia”. In addition, Blinken stressed that despite the fact that “these are only the first days” of the counteroffensive, the Ukrainians have already made significant progress, “especially in the northeast.”
The US Secretary of State suggested that there would still be a war in Ukraine continue, because Russia still has “very significant forces and weapons” that it continues to use “indiscriminately” against civilians and civilian infrastructure.
“Russia committed this aggression. I think, given the cost, what she pays, she can and should stop her,” Blinken said.
Recall that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that the support of Ukraine from the United States and pressure on Russia have shown their effectiveness, so this will not stop until the end of the aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
