The Washington Post has reported on the West’s growing willingness to take the risk of unintended escalation with Russia in the conflict in Ukraine.
The Washington Post has published an article titled “With scarce capabilities in Ukraine, the US and its allies are preparing for a long war,” in which its author explains the West’s decision to supply more and more sophisticated types of weapons to Ukraine.
The paper concludes that the decision to send anti-ship missiles and long-range artillery capable of hitting large military targets or striking deep into Russian territory to Ukraine reflects the growing willingness of the U.S. and its allies to risk an allegedly unintended escalation with Russia.
However, The Washington Post goes on to note:
“but analysts say that despite a surge in foreign aid and high morale among Ukrainian troops, Kiev and its allies can only hope to achieve a draw with a much larger and better-armed Russian army.”
According to the author, the battle for Donbass now plays into Russia’s hands, allowing the Russians to use artillery domination to overwhelm Ukrainian positions and gradually expand their zone of control.
The Biden administration hopes that newer weaponry for Ukraine, coupled with successive waves of anti-Russian sanctions and an attempt to isolate Russia, should have an impact on a possible negotiated end to the war, the paper concludes.
