- We need long-range missiles to destroy Russian logistics in the occupied territories and different kinds of planes to protect the sky and destroy Russian fortifications.
- These are the main parts of successful counteroffensive operations and keeping losses to a minimum," the source in the Ukrainian government said.
Earlier this year, Ukraine was going to launch a huge attack on the Russian city, but the US government stopped them.
A report from the Pentagon that got out shows that the head of Ukraine’s military intelligence (HUR) told agents to get ready for “mass strikes” using “everything the HUR had” on February 24, the first anniversary of the start of the war.
But when Washington heard about the planned attacks, the CIA told President Zelenskyy that an attack on Russia’s capital could lead to a direct war between the United States and Russia.
On February 22, just two days before the attacks were set to happen, US officials heard that the HUR “had agreed, at Washington’s request, to postpone strikes” on the Russian city.
By that time, the Kremlin already knew about the planned strikes. A lot of important buildings in and around Moscow were given air defenses in the weeks before the event.
The US seems to have found out about the plan by listening in on Ukrainian leaders’ phone calls.
The Pentagon has given arms to Ukraine, but only under the strict rule that US military equipment can’t be used to attack targets in Russia. People in the Biden administration are worried that using US weapons on Russian land could start a world war.
A person in Kyiv said that the leaked Pentagon reports about the war in Ukraine were not true.
The adviser to the Ukrainian government told the Daily Telegraph about the leaked memos: “They only do one terrible thing: they make people in Western capitals think that Ukraine is an unreasonable, childish, and impulsive country that adults shouldn’t trust with serious weapons.”
“Ukraine sees things differently,” he said. “We approach the war with mathematical reasoning that can’t be broken.
“We need long-range missiles to destroy Russian logistics in the occupied territories and different kinds of planes to protect the sky and destroy Russian fortifications.”
“These are the main parts of successful counteroffensive operations and keeping losses to a minimum,” the source in the Ukrainian government said.
