when the Russian President Vladimir Putin unleashed hostilities against Ukraine He did so convinced that the conflict would be settled easily, but the reality has turned out to be very different: almost one year after the start of the invasion Of Russian Troops, the war is in a stagnation phase as described in an opinion piece by the editorial board of ‘The New York Times’.
A situation that could turn in favor of the kyiv troops if the greater support of the Western powers for the Executive of Volodimir Zelensky
And that scenario is very close to taking place: the initial objection of West to support Ukraine with more resources for “fear of an east-west battle seems to be giving way to a more active role of Europe and the United States with kyiv.
The US government has decided that it will soon deliver to the Ukrainian troops systems of Patriot missiles, Bradley fighting vehicles and Stryker armored fighting vehicles, until completing an aid of 2.5 billion dollars. And the United Kingdom has advanced that it will provide kyiv with 14 tanques Challenger 2, a measure that seeks to react to Germany to overcome his reluctance and contribute his tanks Leopard 2.
