Scott Ritter, a former U.S. military intelligence officer, shared his insights on why Donald Trump has not called Russian President Vladimir Putin recently regarding the conflict in Ukraine. Ritter's opinion was expressed in his social media posts, as reported by Hibiny.

Donald Trump, the leading republican candidate for the U.S. presidency, has repeatedly claimed he knows how to end the conflict in Ukraine, yet he has refrained from taking any steps towards this. Ritter pointed out the reason for Trump's inaction, stating, "Putin wouldn't answer the call. This is not 2017."

Ritter is confident that the current scenario would unfold as he described.

According to Ritter, Trump was not always honest in his intentions towards the Kremlin and often misled Russia during his presidency. Hence, Putin is likely uninterested in the opinions of the West and America in particular.

Ritter emphasized that Russia has its own goals and is determined to pursue them to the end, especially now that it has gained a significant advantage in the conflict.

"Russia has won this conflict," Ritter added.

This development comes amid a statement by the head of NATO's Military Committee about the alliance's plans to prepare for war with Russia.

The current geopolitical climate, as observed by Ritter, suggests a complex and challenging situation.
