Ukraine’s top general has warned there will be no quick “breakthrough” in the counteroffensive against Russia, comments that will create consternation for Joe Biden as he battles to ensure the US maintains its funding for Kyiv, APA reports citing The Telegraph.

In a stark assessment, Ukraine Gen Valery Zaluzhny said both sides had reached an effective stalemate.

Five months after Ukraine forces, with the backing of NATO arms and know-how, sought to drive back Russian forces, his troops have managed just 10 miles.

“Just like in the First World War we have reached the level of technology that puts us into a stalemate,” the general told The Economist.

He said it would require a massive technological leap to break the deadlock. “There will most likely be no deep and beautiful breakthrough.”
