Russia Will Be in the Past Before the End of the Year

By the end of the year, Ukraine may withdraw the Russian armed forces to positions on February 23

Former US force commander Ben Hodges stated this in an interview with Deutsche Welle. He believes the Russian army has reached its limit. In an interview, the politician said there is nothing more Russia can do, but the Ukrainians need support to win. Ben Hodges notes that the Russians are not advancing but defending themselves, trying to hold on to what they took.

"Ukrainians were incredibly resilient, resourceful, innovative, but they need more long-range and accurate artillery. Artillery and missiles can further fire and continue to destroy Russian artillery and logistics and strike Russian airfields. That's what it takes. We've provided something, but it's not enough to make a difference. That's why the front line hasn't changed for about a month," said the former US force commander.

In an interview, Ben Hodges added that the Russians are not able to defend themselves even in the rear. But to end the Russian Federation's crimes under Putin's leadership as soon as possible, the West must provide more weapons for Ukraine and do so continuously.
