The war between Israel and Palestine has significantly diverted the attention of the international community and its support for Ukraine. As a result, the vast Ukrainian counteroffensive is slowing down. General Valery Zaluzhny, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, acknowledges that the Russian and Ukrainian armies are in a “dead end”.

“Just as in the First World War, we have reached such a technological level that we are at an impasse.” There probably won’t be a magnificent and deep breakthrough,” the commander-in-chief of Kiev’s forces, Valery Zaluzhny, acknowledged in an interview with the British daily The Economist.

According to Cédric Mas, the military analyst-historian, “The military technologies and armaments available today make the attack obsolete in the face of defenses that are impossible to penetrate… Faced with this tactical impasse, we need technological innovations but also innovations in terms of doctrine.”
What Kiev is demanding
General Zaluzhny to the West:
“It is important to understand that this war cannot be won with the weapons of the past generation and outdated methods.”
The war between Hamas and Israel has significantly diverted the attention of the international community and its support for Ukraine, and Kiev is calling on the West to return to finish the first war that has almost fallen into oblivion. Ukraine still needs military aid to carry out this counter-offensive, this war that both sides hope to win not through negotiations but by force.
