US President Joe Biden believes that the war Russia is waging against Ukraine will not last for years due to the economic and political losses for the aggressor country, according to his statement at a press conference in Helsinki.

"Well, I don't think the war [between Russia and Ukraine] could go on for years, for two reasons. Number one, I don't think that the Russians could maintain the war forever in terms of resources and capacity. Number two, I think there is going to be a circumstance where eventually President Putin is going to decide it is not in the interest of Russia, economically, politically, otherwise, to continue this war," Biden said.

At the same time, the US president stated that he cannot predict how the war will end.

However, Biden hopes that Ukraine will make significant progress in the offensive.

Furthermore, he noted that the Russian dictator has already lost the war.

"Putin's already lost the war. Putin has a real problem: How does he move from here? What does he do?" Biden said.

US Support for Ukraine

The United States is Ukraine's most significant ally in the fight against Russia. The US provides financial and military assistance to our country.

In particular, Ukraine has already received cluster munitions from the US, as well as Patriot air defense systems and a range of other weapons. The US also imposes sanctions against Russian individuals and companies.

Biden has repeatedly expressed his support for Ukraine. He believes that Putin made a mistake by starting the invasion of Ukraine. He has also stated that the world is uniting because of Ukraine.
