Rasmussen has figured out Putin's Plan B: Weakening the West and Freezing the War

Dictator Vladimir Putin

Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that at this stage, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is focusing on weakening the West. At the same time, there is no talk of a rapid seizure of Ukraine.

At the same time, the Kremlin leader wants to freeze the war. Rasmussen said this in an interview with the German TV channel n-tv.

According to him, the Russian-Ukrainian war could drag on for a long time. Rasmussen emphasized that Putin's initial plan to conquer the whole of Ukraine had failed. Now the dictator wants to freeze the conflict and retain the occupied territories.

"I am afraid that this will be a war for a long time. Putin's plan A - to conquer all of Ukraine in a few days - has failed. His plan B is a frozen conflict and Russian occupation of eastern Ukraine, hoping that the West will weaken and give in," Rasmussen said.

He also added that the war in Ukraine will last at least until the end of 2024. Rasmussen explained that Putin hopes that the US presidential election will bring changes that will help him in one way or another.

"In my opinion, next year will be crucial. If we give the Ukrainians everything they need to not only survive but also win the war, they have a good chance of pushing the Russians back," Rasmussen said.

As a reminder, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin has put forward cynical conditions for negotiations with Ukraine to end the war and attempted to threaten. In particular, he said that to start negotiations, Ukrainian troops must be completely withdrawn from the territory of the so-called DPR, LPR, as well as from Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions.

Earlier it was reported that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz strongly opposed an immediate ceasefire in Ukraine. He said that without deep negotiations and a clear roadmap to a just and lasting peace, such a pause would only legitimize Russia's seizure of Ukrainian territories and create a new frozen conflict.
