North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg declared that the war “is not going as Moscow had planned” as Ukrainian troops continue their counter-offensive, pushing Russian troops closer to their border.

This comes as NATO Foreign Ministers met in Berlin on Sunday to discuss the NATO application of Finland and Sweden, and the reaffirmation of NATO’s support for Ukraine in the wake of Russia’s brutal invasion, where Stoltenberg said that Russia is not achieving what they planned.

“Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives,” Stoltenberg said.

Moreover, Stoltenberg added that the opposite of the Russian goal of defeating Ukraine, and dividing Europe and North America has happened.

“President Putin wants Ukraine defeated, NATO down and Europe and North America divided. But Ukraine stands, NATO is stronger than ever. Europe and North America are solidly united,” Stoltenberg said.

The NATO Secretary-General went on to say that Ukraine might prevail.

“Ukraine can win this war,” he said.

Since the invasion started on February 24, Russia has failed in a myriad of ways, among these are the failure of the chain of command, and overextending deep into Ukrainian territory, which gave Russia challenges with logistics.

Russia has planned to invade Ukraine initially with a “shock and awe” campaign but has since turned into a war of attrition–one where Ukraine is winning.

Russian forces have retreated after failing to take the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, instead opting to focus their attention on the Donbas.

However, the Russian offensive on the Donbas is stalling amid great resistance from Ukraine, and with Ukrainian troops mounting a successful counter-offensive, Russia has since retreated from Kharkiv, the second-largest city in Ukraine. (GFB)
