No matter how long the fighting in Ukraine lasts, the war will ultimately end with a strategic Russian defeat, U.S. State Department spokesman Ned Price said at a press briefing on March 6.

"It was very clear from the earliest hours of Russia's invasion of Ukraine that whenever this ended, it would end in a strategic failure for Russia," Price said.

At the same time, he warned that heavy battles still lie ahead.

“We have been very clear that there are going to be tough days ahead,” the official added. “Fighting, while it has lowered somewhat during the winter months, it continues to reach, especially in the east, especially in the south.”

According to Price, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin will fail to achieve any of his strategic goals in Ukraine.

“This will be a strategic failure for Russia; Ukrainians have demonstrated that they are in a position not only to withstand the advancing Russian forces, but to take back territory that has been rested away from them,” the spokesman concluded.

“That won't change."
