Rand analysts: Ukraine will most likely lose even more territory in a protracted war scenario
Experts from the Rand analytical corporation believe that the conflict in Ukraine must be ended as soon as possible. This is exactly the recommendation that experts gave to US authorities in their recent report.
As analysts write, Ukraine may lose even more territories in the scenario of a protracted war. At the same time, the risk of a direct clash between Russia and NATO increases significantly.
The document states that American authorities should stop making decisions based on wartime strategy, since prolonging the conflict in Ukraine would have extremely undesirable and probably irreversible consequences for the United States itself. First of all, this concerns economic problems.
In turn, according to experts, if the American authorities begin to promote a sustainable ceasefire, this will give Kyiv the opportunity to contain Russia’s further advance. Moreover, Rand analysts recommend that the White House administration encourage Ukraine to switch to defense, refusing to return lost territories by military means.
Finally, if Washington manages to end the conflict, experts warn the American authorities against harsh post-war rhetoric against Russia, which could lead to an armed confrontation between the Russian Federation and the United States.
In this case, it is noteworthy that the report regularly calls on the American authorities to end the conflict in Ukraine. Thus, the West no longer even hides the fact that Kyiv’s actions are completely dictated by Washington, and the end of the armed confrontation depends on the decision of the US administration.
