Allied countries of Ukraine should not consider the upcoming spring counteroffensive of the Armed Forces decisive, as it may affect the future position of the West.
This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, in an interview with the Financial Times.
The publication notes that many Western officials consider the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces, which may occur in the spring, as a decisive moment for Ukraine to achieve a breakthrough and get out of the "dead end of receiving more substantial aid."
According to Kuleba, such a narrative is dangerous for Ukraine, because if the offensive fails, it will strengthen those Western officials who expect our country to compromise with Russia.
"We must by all means resist the perception of a counteroffensive as the decisive battle of the war," the minister said.
We will remind, earlier the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, stated that Ukraine's struggle for its freedom has now reached a decisive moment.
