According to the lieutenant general, Russia has moved to a total war and a phase when material support and logistics play a key role, due to why the West should realize the inevitability of military support for Ukraine.
After all, now even the blind can see that they are preparing for the next wave of offensive. And they can stop or change their plan only if that they will see that Ukraine has a sufficient amount of equipment, ammunition, weapons and trained personnel.
He also added that it must be borne in mind that Russia has all the conditions to provide its own army with ammunition, tanks, combat vehicles if the war lasts a long time.

I will tell you that inside NATO, at the level of my colleagues thirty Commanders-in-Chief, there is a consensus. Your war – this is our war, we must support Ukraine with all available means.
