US Secretary of Defense: ‘With the right equipment, Ukraine can win the war’

Ukraine can win the war against Russia if it has the right military equipment and the right support. This was stated by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin during his visit to Kiev, Ukraine.

“You need first, hope that you can win, and that they (the Ukrainians) can hope to win,” Austin said. “If they have the right equipment and the right support they can succeed.”

Austin and US Secretary of State Anthony Blingen visited Kiev yesterday. They also spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky. This is the first visit by US leaders to Ukraine since the February 24 invasion of Russia.

The United States has recently provided military equipment to Ukraine. Currently heavy weapons are also provided.

“We want to weaken the invasion of Ukraine to the point where it can no longer be done by Russia,” he said. “They have already lost a lot of military capability and a lot of troops. We do not want them to recreate that capability at any time.
