Russian dictator Vladimir Putin does not intend to stop the bloody war and, if he wins in Ukraine, will continue armed aggression against European countries and NATO.

This was stated by the former head of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) David Petraeus, writes The Sun.

According to him, Western allies must provide continuous assistance to Kyiv so that Russia cannot achieve its goals, bringing war to the entire European continent.

< em>– The war in Ukraine could spread to the region if Putin succeeds in Ukraine. Moldova appears to be next. After that it could be Lithuania or another Baltic country— Petraeus is convinced.

What Ukraine needs to defeat Russia

At the same time, he pointed out that Ukraine needs to develop its own military technologies in order to gain an advantage on the battlefield .

As an example, Petraeus drew attention to the dozens of Russian ships that were sunk or seriously damaged by the Defense Forces.

– Note that this was done not by Ukrainian ships or sailors, but by unmanned aerial vehicles. Naval drones, aerial drones and anti-ship missiles allowed the Ukrainian Armed Forces to sink a third of the ships of the Black Sea Fleet– said a former American intelligence official.

At the same time Petraeus does not deny that the key to Ukraine’s victory lies, among other things, in increasing its own military power at the expense of Western partners.

— The reality is complex, and this is another reason why we must do everything possible to help Ukraine— summed up the former head of the CIA.
