Dr. Ashley Ansara, Board Member at the American Middle Eastern Coalition for Democracy (AMCD) interview with the Al-Qahera TV Media from Egypt on February 14, 2023 to discuss the Russo-Ukraine war.
The NATO has announced that Ukraine is using up ammunitions far faster than the European manufacturing facilities can produce. The main outcomes of the Russo-Ukrainian War are the followings: 1. Ukrainian forces are more resilient that most analysts expected; 2. The NATO has proven it is effectiveness in supporting Ukraine and stopping the Russian aggression; 3. Russia remains a potent and unscrupulous opponent and will uses all methods available and break the international laws in pursuit of its nefarious agenda in Ukraine. The Russo-Ukrainian war began in February 2014 when Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine. It became worsen when Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. The Trilateral Turkey-Russia-Ukraine meeting in Turkey in March 10, 2022, has failed to produce any results. Wars for the sake of wars is useless. Wars must have an economic and/or political goal. Russia will not allow Ukraine to be a part of the NATO under any circumstances. Russia has been strong supporter of the Separatist movement in Ukraine. According to the Norway government, there are 180,000 Russian soldiers and 100,000 Ukrainian troops were killed or wounded in the war so far. Russia control only 16.55% of the Ukrainian territories at the end of 2022 comparing to 24.4% at the end of March 2022. The U.K., the Netherlands, Norway has pledged to train over 50,000 Ukrainian soldiers on infantry tactics. France, USA and Australia has increased their production of 155mm munitions which is the backbone of the Ukraine military. The US have not enough Army Tactical Missile Systems in the warehouses to spare the Ukrainian military. In summary, this war is going to be a very costly for both countries and it is not going to end soon.
