Ukraine launched a counter-offensive in June to reclaim territory occupied by Russia after obtaining Western weapons and training new brigades.

I know some observers say this attack has failed. “It did not fail,” the American general said in an interview with CNN.

He added, “This attack, although slow and slower than expected, has remained steady,” stressing that the Ukrainians still have a “significant striking force.”

However, the general acknowledged that it would “take a long time” to achieve Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s goal of “expelling all Russians” from the country.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will be welcomed to the White House on Thursday for new talks with President Joe Biden about supporting Kiev against the Russian invasion.

This trip comes at a time when the US Congress is discussing a new envelope worth $24 billion in military aid for Kiev.

Volodymyr Zelensky should also go to the Capitol to meet with Republican and Democratic leadership.
