Russia invasion to turn 'into slow-moving frozen occupation' as war could last 5 years

WorldRussia invasion to turn 'into slow-moving frozen occupation' as war could last 5 years

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been raging for over two months, and there are still no signs of an end in sight, as peace talks have halted. Mr Wallace claimed that if Russia felt like they were losing the war they may dig in and fortify, which will lead to a frozen conflict that could be ongoing. The Defence Secretary then discussed Russian forces killing Ukrainians since the occupation of Donetsk and Crimea.

LBC host Nick Ferrari said: “Conquer with your senior colleagues, Secretary of State good morning.”

Mr Wallace told LBC: “Good morning Nick, well look, certainly, if Russia recognises that it’s losing it could do another strategy which is effectively to dig in, fortify what it’s got and make it some form of frozen conflict.”

Mr Wallace continued: “Crimea, Donetsk and if you cast your mind back to 2014 having invaded illegally.

“It basically set up a line of defences and hunkered down and used snipers to just pick off members of the Ukrainian army.

Mr Johnson added: “It is because of President Zelenskyy’s resolute leadership and the invincible heroism and courage of the Ukrainian people that Putin’s monstrous aims are being thwarted.

“I made clear today that the United Kingdom stands unwaveringly with them in this ongoing fight, and we are in it for the long run.

“We are stepping up our own military and economic support and convening a global alliance to bring this tragedy to an end, and ensure Ukraine survives and thrives as a free and sovereign nation.”
