Russia will emerge from this war weaker than it went in – U.S. official

Russia has probably lost half its main battle tanks and used up the majority of its precision-guided weapons in its war on Ukraine, a high-ranking U.S. official said Tuesday, according to CNN.

Speaking with a group of reporters, Colin Kahl, the Pentagon’s Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, stated that this war has become a “massive strategic failure” for the Kremlin.

“Putin has failed. Russia will emerge from this war weaker than it went in,” Kahl said.

He pointed out that Russia has suffered “tens of thousands of casualties” since the full-scale aggression began in February, which is “orders of magnitude” more than the Soviet Union suffered in Afghanistan.

“Putin went into this war trying to extinguish Ukraine as an independent, sovereign democratic country. He’s failed, and that’s not going to change. A sovereign, independent, democratic Ukraine is going to endure,” Kahl emphasized.
