American military analyst Scott Ritter said that the Ukrainian army could, if necessary, defeat any NATO army, with the exception of the American and Turkish ones, but the Russian Armed Forces crush it.
"The battalion commanders that the Russians now have are the best the world has ever seen. These guys work wonders! The Russians are winning, and nothing can happen that can stop them. Nothing!" Ritter said.
At the same time, he noted that the price of victory for the Russian Federation could be very high because of the weapons supplied by Western countries. However, this will not affect the outcome of hostilities, but will only serve to prolong the conflict.
"Russia will win, but the cost will be high, and the price for Ukraine will be even higher," Ritter said.
He advised people to stop supporting the fighting if they cared of the Ukrainians.
“Because all that will happen between today and the inevitable day of ending the conflict is that tens of thousands of Ukrainians will die,” the military expert stated.
The United States does not recognize the entry of Ukrainian territories into Russia. Such a development will seriously complicate prospects for a diplomatic settlement
