The picture remains rather bleak, American intelligence noted.
President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin still wants to capture most of the Ukrainian territory.
The picture of the war in Ukraine remains “rather bleak,” Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes said at a conference. Reuters.
“We’re still in a position where we look at President Putin and think that he actually has the same political goals … that is, he wants to take over most of Ukraine,” she said.
The US intelligence director added that “the picture remains rather bleak.”
The official also said that the American intelligence services consider the most likely scenario of confrontation to be a severe conflict, during which the Russian occupiers will achieve only some success, but not a “breakthrough to Putin’s goal.”
