Ukraine's defeat in the war with Russia will cost the West trillions of dollars, as it will lead to a new Cold War that will last for decades. The same future awaits the world in the event of a stalemate on the battlefield. Therefore, the West is interested in Ukraine winning the war.

This was stated by former British Secretary of State for the Armed Forces James Heappey. His words are quoted by The Telegraph.

According to James Heappey, "additional aid packages like those presented this week will be needed" for Ukraine to win the battle for "security in the entire Euro-Atlantic region."

"A stalemate or, God forbid, a defeat for Ukraine promises a new Cold War that will last for decades and cost trillions of dollars," the British ex-minister emphasized.

However, despite the influx of support for Ukraine, Heappey does not believe that Ukrainian defenders will be able to defeat the Russians by 2025 or even 2026.

According to him, the U.S. aid package will not be able to "immediately tip the scales, allowing the Ukrainians to move to a final offensive that will bring a quick and complete victory."

"I expect that with this huge influx of support from the West, we will see the front lines stabilize, and while the fighting will be fierce, I don't expect significant amounts of territory to be liberated this year," he added.

According to James Heappey, Ukrainian brigades need to be taught "a complex maneuver that synchronizes their movement with artillery fire, air support and everything else that can be thrown at the Russians."

As reported by OBOZ.UA, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg admitted that neither NATO nor the European Union had fulfilled what they had promised Ukraine in terms of arms supplies. This has had serious consequences at the front.
