Russia could not execute its plans for a full-scale invasion, so it has already failed the war against Ukraine, believes the US President's National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.

"We believe that Russia has already failed in this war. What did Russia set out to do? Wipe Ukraine off the map. Wipe the very idea of being Ukrainian from history. It has already failed at that," Sullivan emphasized.

He reminded that Russia's attack on Kyiv failed, the aggressor country could not overthrow the democratically elected Ukrainian government and break the spirit of the Ukrainian people. Thus, the plans laid out by the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin at the beginning of the war "have not been fulfilled and will never be fulfilled."

"But that's not enough. In the end, we need to see a circumstance in which Ukraine no longer suffers from the threat and the onslaught of the Russian military, and where it can stand not just free and independent, but safe and secure as well. That's what we're going to work towards," Sullivan added.

Successes of Ukraine in the war

Ukraine has managed to achieve many successes since the beginning of the full-scale invasion by Russian occupiers. In particular, our defenders have liberated more than half of the territories captured by the enemy.

Also, the Ukrainian military managed to repel the Russian Black Sea Fleet from the western part of the Black Sea, allowing for maritime exports.

Recently, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock stated that every missile launched by the Russian dictator Vladimir Putin at Ukraine shows that he wants to destroy the country.
