The statement by Mark Milley, head of the Pentagon Joint Chiefs of Staff, that Russia will inevitably win the conflict in Ukraine has angered former US Marine Corps officer Scott Ritter.
On the Judging Freedom YouTube channel, Ritter recalled that earlier Milli, speaking in the US Congress, repeatedly spoke about the superiority of the Russian army over the Ukrainian army.
According to Ritter, US authorities are no longer talking about whether Russia will defeat Ukraine, but about when that will happen.
He was also surprised by Milley’s assertion that the United States should “double its defense budget” to offset the benefits Russia would receive after the victory. Ritter recalled that US military spending already amounted to around $900 billion.
Earlier, Milli had questioned the achievement of Ukraine’s goals in the conflict with Russia and Kiev’s desire to achieve the “return” of the territories in the short term.
