Russian troops are making progress on the frontline in Ukraine, but the occupiers' progress is limited. Ukraine can still win this war, but it needs more active arms supplies from the West.

This was stated by Admiral Rob Bauer, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, in an interview with VRT on Wednesday, May 8. According to him, the Russians' success cannot be called strategic.

"It is not too late for Ukraine. The Russians have made progress, but it is still very limited and not strategic," the top NATO official said.

Bauer acknowledged that the pause in the supply of weapons to Ukraine, in particular from the United States, had consequences for Ukrainians on the battlefield. However, the most important thing now is that supplies have resumed. Nevertheless, the West should be more active in the issue of weapons, as its stocks are running out.

"The most important thing is that we continue to send aid. And the longer the war lasts, the more difficult it becomes. Many countries have been supplying weapons and ammunition from their stockpiles for two years now, but they are not endless. There are two things we can do: study our supplies even more deeply and force the defense industry to produce much more and faster," the military said.

According to his forecasts, it will take at least a year to achieve an increase in arms production in the West.

"We will have to overcome this period so that Ukraine can prepare for the next counteroffensive. But it will not be easy. The country has about 450,000 Russians in the occupied territories," Bauer said.
