“I believe that the Ukrainian troops will be successful. It is obvious that the Ukrainian soldiers are able to ensure the effectiveness of the combined arms operation,” said the general, who was also the director of the Central Intelligence Agency at one time.
The success of Ukraine’s counteroffensive will largely depend on the state of the Russian army, he added.
“They’ve been in the war for 14-15 months, they’ve had huge losses, they haven’t had a normal chance to re-equip, but it’s impossible to have a unified, disciplined military force this way,” Petraeus said.
The success of the Ukrainian army on the battlefield will depend on further assistance to Ukraine, as well as the prospective entry into NATO, the general said.
