I saw this recently on CNN – War in Ukraine reaches pivotal moment that could determine long-term outcome, intelligence officials say: https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/14/politics/ukraine-war-pivotal-moment-intelligence-officials-loses-in-the-east-russia/index.html/. Longer article.
Ukraine’s military is burning through Soviet-era ammunition that fits older systems as the country pleads with the West to send more heavy weaponry and Russia amasses a significant artillery advantage around two strategically important cities in eastern Ukraine.
Western intelligence and military officials believe Russia’s war in Ukraine is in a critical stage that could determine the long-term outcome of the conflict, according to multiple sources familiar with US and other Western intelligence.
This pivotal moment could also force a tough decision for Western governments, which have up until now offered support to Ukraine at a steadily increasing cost to their own economies and national stockpiles of weapons.
