Dmitry Peskov, Press Secretary of the Russian President, concurred with Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin's assertion that the United States lacks a decisive "magic wand" in the conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.
Peskov, while speaking to REN-TV, acknowledged that NATO's ongoing weapon supplies to the Ukrainian Armed Forces are expected to continue, but he doubted these efforts would significantly alter the trajectory of the conflict.
According to Peskov, despite NATO's involvement and efforts to enhance the tactical and technical capabilities of Ukraine's forces, the overall course of the hostilities would likely remain unaffected.
This statement aligns with the sentiments expressed by Lloyd Austin, who recently remarked that the U.S. does not possess any special weaponry that could dramatically shift the balance in Ukraine's favor in the military confrontation with Russia.
Austin also highlighted the resilience and capability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, particularly their ability to continue combat operations during the winter.
These comments from both Peskov and Austin reflect the ongoing complexities and challenges in the Ukraine-Russia conflict, with significant international involvement but no clear solution on the horizon.
