US intelligence expects a slower progression of hostilities in Ukraine over the upcoming months

Avril Haines, the director of national intelligence for the US, stated that despite Russian attacks on Ukraine’s electricity and other essential infrastructure during the impending winter, she saw no signs of a breakdown in the country’s resolve to resist. She stated that a slowdown in the progression of hostilities in Ukraine is expected for several months.

She claimed that despite the fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin was disappointed that his country’s armed forces could not accomplish more following their invasion of Ukraine, his political objectives for the country’s neighbour had remained the same.

Avril Haines claimed that despite the difficulties with the emerging coronavirus disease, President Xi Jinping of China, the second critical geopolitical opponent of the United States, does not want to embrace Western vaccines against Covid-19.

The recent demonstrations against the infection’s severe containment measures are not a threat to the power of the Chinese Communist Party, but they might impact Xi Jinping’s condition, according to Haines.

Suppose Russian President Vladimir Putin negotiates to end this brutal war in Ukraine. In that case, the West must choose how to respond to his demand for security guarantees, French President Emmanuel Macron said, according to Reuters.

Macron stated that Europe needs to plan its future security architecture in an interview with French TV channel TF1 captured during his state visit to the United States. According to him, this indicates that a solution must be found to Moscow’s concerns about NATO approaching its borders and the deployment of weaponry that might endanger it.

Russia and the US have stated that they are, in principle, open to negotiations, with US President Joe Biden saying he would only speak to Putin if the Kremlin demonstrated a desire to end the conflict, according to Reuters. In Kyiv’s view, negotiations are only feasible if Moscow ceases its hostilities and pulls its soldiers out of Ukraine.
