Russia will not be able to win the war against Ukraine. Its plans to occupy the Donetsk and Luhansk regions are unattainable.

This was stated by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Mark Milley at a briefing, RBC-Ukraine reports.

"Any end to the war takes place at the negotiating table. But we understand that Russia will not win this war. All the goals set by the Russians disappeared into thin air. Putin may now have a goal to seize the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, but these goals are unattainable. And the strategic goals of Ukraine are to liberate all its occupied territories," Milley said.

The General said that now there are several hundred thousand Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine. Therefore, it is possible to achieve de-occupation, but not in the near future.

According to Mark Milley, the battle will continue, but at some point the parties will come to decisions at the negotiating table. "Or everything will be decided on the battlefield," he added.

At the same time, Milley stressed that until one of these scenarios occurs, the United States, together with its allies, will continue to steadfastly help Ukraine.

We will remind, as stated by the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin, the participants of the meeting in the format of "Ramstein" may on may 25 will focus on helping Ukraine further protect the sky.
