Ukraine’s Dire Prediction

( – Putting our country in a difficult situation of helping other nations at the expense of Americans’ well-being, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asserted that Ukraine would lose the war against Russia if the U.S. Congress did not provide further military aid.

In the middle of the drawn-out battle, Congress’ deadlock over tens of billions of dollars earmarked for Kyiv is a significant issue. This stalemate is primarily due to resistance from House Republicans who are seeking more funds to secure the U.S. southern border.

During a virtual assembly for the fundraising initiative United24, Zelensky stated, “It is necessary to specifically tell Congress that if Congress does not help Ukraine, Ukraine will lose the war.”

He said that without the expected aid package, in addition to the substantial $113 billion already allocated to Ukraine—costing American households an average of $900 each—would jeopardize Ukraine’s survival.

Zelensky warned there could be a domino effect and suggested that Ukraine’s defeat would embolden Russia to attack other nations.

According to Ukrainian officials, Russia’s ongoing assault saw a fresh wave of missile strikes that killed eight people and injured 12.

Notably, these attacks caused significant casualties and infrastructure damage in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.

Zelensky’s appeal to the United States underscores the critical point at which Ukraine finds itself: combating not only a major opponent in Russia but also shortages in manpower and ammunition.

Despite past victories and the resilience shown in frustrating Russia’s initial advance, Ukraine faces an uncertain future.

The lack of change at the frontlines and Russia’s constant bombardment challenge Ukraine’s defense and underscore the crucial role of U.S. support in this geopolitical crisis.

According to Franz-Stefan Gady of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, the war’s progression came to a “transitional phase,” which reveals the evolving tactics and the looming threat of a Russian offensive.

Zelensky’s concerns extend beyond immediate military needs, as he cautions against Russia’s potential escalation of the conflict to a nuclear war.
