Richard Moore, the head of Britain’s intelligence service, has expressed optimism about Ukraine’s prospects in its war against Russia, noting that Russian forces have lost momentum on the battlefield. Moore highlighted Ukraine’s territorial gains, stating that they have recovered more territory in a month than Russia achieved in a year. He further emphasized that there seems to be little chance of the Russian forces regaining their momentum.
During a speech in Prague, Moore remarked that it would be up to Kyiv to define the end of the war, as most conflicts typically conclude through negotiations. His statements come as Ukraine continues its spring counteroffensive against Russian troops. While the fighting has proven to be more challenging than initially anticipated, with progress being measured in hundreds of meters rather than tens of kilometers, Ukraine remains committed to expelling a significant number of Russian forces from its soil and turning the tide of the conflict.
Moore’s optimism reflects the belief that Ukraine’s efforts, combined with the support of its allies, can ultimately lead to a favorable outcome in the war against Russia. The situation remains fluid, with the ongoing dynamics on the ground shaping the future of the conflict.
