CIA chief warns US against ‘own goals of historic proportions’

For the United States to stop supporting Ukraine at this crucial moment is an own goal of historic proportions, Burns said.

It is strategically important for the United States to continue to support Ukraine against the backdrop of a further full-scale Russian invasion. This is what CIA Director William Burns said in his article in Foreign Affairs magazine.

Burns writes that Russia has already lost the war on many levels, having lost at least 315,000 Russian troops and two-thirds of its pre-war tank fleet, and is no closer to its strategic goal of capturing Kyiv and conquer Ukraine.

The head of the CIA also believed that the invasion weakened Putin’s power, as evidenced by the revolt of Wagner PMC head Evgeniy Prigozhin in June 2023. At the same time, he was determined to prolong the war, hoping that the time would be his side.

“The key to success is maintaining Western aid to Ukraine. Less than five percent of the US defense budget is a small investment compared to the significant geopolitical payoff for the United States and the significant return to American industry, ” Burns wrote.

He said that additional assistance to Kyiv with weapons would give it a “stronger position” in the event of likely negotiations, and would also provide an opportunity to ensure a long-term gain for Ukraine and a strategic loss for Russia .

Burns emphasizes that for the United States to withdraw from the conflict at this decisive moment and stop supporting Ukraine is a self-serving goal of historic proportions.

Let’s remember that US President Joe Biden asked Congress in October last year to approve additional funds, including more than $60 billion for Ukraine. However, Republicans are still blocking it because of the contradictions between the parties on the issue of border security with Mexico.
