Former CIA chief reveals why Ukraine's counterattack failed

Former head of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), David Petraeus, said that Ukraine was unable to achieve a breakthrough during the "counterattack" due to delays in the supply of Western weapons.
He said in an interview with the Washington Post that Kiev "unfortunately failed to achieve a breakthrough because Western countries did not deliver weapons to Ukraine." Noting that among the reasons for the failure of the counterattack, in particular, was “an obstacle to the supply of tanks, cluster munitions, and aircraft.”

He added that "no one really realized and appreciated the size of the minefields" in Russia, which was able to organize "a defensive formation along several lines."

On November 30, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in an interview with the Associated Press, admitted that the Ukrainian Armed Forces' counteroffensive had not achieved the results hoped for in Kiev.
