Russia Hasn’t Achieved Any Strategic Objectives in Ukraine’s Invasion

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said on Monday that Russia “has yet to achieve any of its strategic objectives” in the invasion after more than six months into its war in Ukraine.

In a statement to lawmakers in the House of Commons, Wallace said Russia “continues to lose significant equipment and personnel in the war, it is estimated to date that over 25,000 Russian soldiers have lost their lives. If you include killed, casualties, captured or the now reported tens of thousands of deserters — over 80,000 dead or injured and the other categories.” He accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of ‘weaponizing’ energy, saying, “We are driven by effectively a totalitarian and a regime in Russia that is deliberately setting out to harm us and trying to test us about whether we will sacrifice our values for our energy costs.” Wallace also urged the entire Europe to unite over the winter. He encouraged people to stand together and not be afraid of the Russia’s threat.
