Western support for Ukraine will turn the conflict into a “second Vietnam” that will haunt Washington for years to come. These are the horrific words spoken by Sergei Naryshkin, head of Russia’s foreign intelligence service (SVR).
The West has provided Ukraine with more than $246 billion (more than €228 million) in aid and weapons, but the Ukrainian counteroffensive has yielded far fewer results than hoped. Russia still controls about a fifth of Ukraine’s territory.
Ukraine will turn into a “black hole” that consumes more and more resources and people
“Ukraine will turn into a ‘black hole’ swallowing up more and more resources and people,” warned Russian intelligence chief Sergei Naryshkin, in an article in the SVR’s internal magazine, “The Intelligence Operative.”
Ultimately, the United States risks creating a “second Vietnam” for itself, and any new US administration will have to confront this.
“The best gift for Putin”
Biden urged Republicans on Wednesday for a new military aid package for Ukraine, but backed away from that in Congress. Earlier in the day, Biden said that if Congress blocked the resolution, it would be the “greatest gift” to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The US President warned that otherwise Putin would continue as usual. It was said that if he attacked NATO countries, American forces would suddenly fight against the Russians. The US President said that new aid to Ukraine is therefore “in our overwhelming national interest and the international interest of all our friends.”
Poland’s National Security Service also warned that a Russian attack on NATO could happen sooner than expected. “NATO has only three years to prepare,” said Jacek Siwira, head of Poland’s National Security Agency. Earlier this week, Putin threatened Latvia.
If the US Congress does not adopt the budget before November 17, the United States will move towards a so-called shutdown, paralyzing the federal government, and US aid to Ukraine is at risk of drying up.
