Ukraine LIVE: Russia has failed! Despot’s invasion ‘falters’ – Wallace | World | News

The Defence Secretary has said President Putin is unlikely to succeed in his mission to occupy Ukraine.

Speaking at a joint conference pledging more funds to Ukraine, Mr Wallace said the Kremlin’s offensive is “starting to fail in many areas”.

He added: “They have failed so far and are unlikely to ever succeed in occupying Ukraine.

“Their invasion has faltered and constantly been remodified to the extent they are really only focusing in parts of the south and in the east, a long, long way away from their three-day so-called special operation.

“Three days are now over 150 days and nearly six months in, with huge significant losses of both equipment and indeed Russian personnel.”

The Defence Secretary had earlier said: “President Putin will have gambled that come August, come a few months in we will have all got bored of the conflict and the international community would have gone off in different directions. Well, today is proof of the opposite.

“We have come out of this meeting with more pledges of finance, more pledges of training and more pledges of military aid, all designed to help Ukraine win, to help Ukraine stand up for its sovereignty and indeed to ensure that President Putin’s ambitions fail in Ukraine as they rightly should.”
