Ukraine wins in the North but the war is not yet won, says Klain

“There’s a lot of evidence that Putin is simply pulling his troops out of the northern part of the country and redeploying them to the eastern part of the country,” Klain told host George Stephanopoulos.

He added: “There have been victories for the Ukrainians so far, but this war, unfortunately, is far from over.”

Klain said the Ukrainians fought bravely and gallantly to repel the Russian invaders. He also said the United States and its NATO allies must continue to support President Volodymyr Zelensky and his country’s military.

“The military future of this attack must be pushed back,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying so hard to support President Zelenskyy and his army with the tools they need, with the weapons they need, with the other help they need to drive the Russian invasion out of their country.”

Speaking later on the same program, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said he was curious about Putin’s thoughts on Ukraine’s robust resistance to the February invasion.

“What would be interesting, I think, would be to know,” Blunt said, “whether Putin was more surprised by the incredible resistance of the Ukrainians; the rallying of NATO to the original and unified goal of NATO, especially the change in German attitude; or how badly his own army has functioned. I’m sure he’s surprised by all three.

Blunt added, “I don’t think anyone could have anticipated those three big events.”
