US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has praised the ‘extraordinary resilience of the Ukrainian people and said he was convinced that Ukraine could win its war with Russia.

Summary

This BBC article makes the following points:
  • Despite Mr Blinken’s optimism, he could not say how long the conflict would last.
  • The war had not gone as Russian leader Vladimir Putin had planned due to stiff resistance by Ukrainian forces.
  • The international community was committed to doing what it could to help Ukraine, including putting severe pressure on Russia to end the war.
  • If Ukraine did fall, its 45 million people were going to reject Russia’s occupation, one way or the other.
