In an effort to help the Ukrainian military hold ground over the coming winter months, NATO and the U.S. have sped up the transfer of warm clothing, arms, and technology to counter drone strikes to Ukrainian forces.
A NATO official told reporters, “The Ukrainians are on their front foot, and they certainly feel prepared for the winter campaign,” the official went on to say that the foreign assistance that is being provided is focused on the arrival of winter.
Despite the certainty of snow and ice and then mud as winter thaws, U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin believes that Ukraine troops will still be able to launch counter-offensive attacks against the Russians saying, “I expect that Ukraine will continue to do everything it can throughout the winter to regain its territory and to be effective on the battlefield.”
