NATO says West was 'too optimistic' about Ukraine war in 2023 – FT

NATO says it was overly optimistic about war in Ukraine in 2023

The Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, Admiral Rob Bauer, has expressed the opinion that the West was "too optimistic" about the course of Russia's war against Ukraine in 2023. According to him, the West believed that "if you provide the Ukrainians with the necessary ammunition and training, they will win."

His statement was quoted by the Financial Times. But now, he said, Western countries should "refrain from excessive pessimism in 2024."

"The very fact that Ukraine is still a sovereign state and that Ukrainians have regained 50% of what the Russians took in 2022 is remarkable," Bauer said.

Earlier, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said that his country would support Ukraine until victory. Otherwise, Putin's victory over Ukraine will encourage other dictators to take similar actions.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, Italy said that Ukraine must join NATO. However, it cannot join the North Atlantic Alliance while it is at war with Russia. This was stated by Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani at the Munich Security Conference.
