Russia’s war against Ukraine could last six months, or it could end in three years, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl said at the hearings in the House of Representatives regarding the military support of Kyiv from the United States on Feb. 28.
Kahl said that is was difficult to predict the terms of continuation of aid to Ukraine.
“It’s difficult because we do not know the exact trajectory of the conflict. The conflict may end in six months, or maybe in two or three years,” the Pentagon representative said.
At the same time, he noted that U.S. President Joe Biden had promised to provide support to Kyiv as long as it was needed.
Kahl expressed hope that the U.S. Congress would support the effort, should the war continue.
He also said that Russia will not be able to achieve significant territorial gains in Ukraine during 2023.
Ukrainian local officials, as well as political and military experts in Ukraine and the world, predict various dates for the end of Russia’s war against Ukraine.
The Latvian security service in a recent report said that Ukraine’s battles against the Russian army would continue at least until the end of 2023.
A fresh Russian ground attack on Kyiv is also not ruled out, the Latvian security service said.
