‘Ukraine Can Win This War’, NATO Chief Says

Ukraine can win the war against Russia, NATO’s secretary general has said, insisting that Russia’s invasion is “not going as Moscow had planned”.

Jens Stoltenberg was speaking on Sunday to a meeting of NATO member countries, although he addressed them via video as he was recovering from COVID-19.

He said: “Russia’s war in Ukraine is not going as Moscow had planned.

“They failed to take Kyiv. They are pulling back from around Kharkiv. Their major offensive in Donbas has stalled.

“Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives.

“Ukraine can win this war.”

It comes as Finland and Sweden move closer to NATO membership, reversing decades of neutrality despite strong objections from Russia.
