The United States and Ukraine are developing a new military strategy, and Lieutenant General Antonio Aguto will go to Kiev to help come up with it, writes the New York Times. At the same time, there is still no consensus between Washington and Kiev on the content of this strategy.
According to the publication, US and Ukrainian officers hope to work out the details of the new strategy during war games scheduled for January in Wiesbaden, Germany. At the same time, the Ukrainians advocate offensive actions in the hope of attracting the attention of the world community, while American advisers, on the contrary, are promoting a more restrained option aimed at accumulating forces throughout the year.
Journalists believe that the goal of the new strategy will be to create a significant force with which Russia “will have to reckon and enter into meaningful negotiations at the end of 2024 or already in 2025.” But a large number of Republicans in the US Congress have said they will not vote on any additional spending on Ukraine until they see that very new strategy.
The publication’s sources also reported that the Ukrainian authorities do not understand how unstable further funding from the United States is, and they have unrealistic expectations about what exactly the United States will supply. For example, they are asking for millions of artillery shells from Western stocks that do not exist.
