If Kiev’s Western allies do not increase their military support, Russian President Vladimir Putin may end up winning the war against Ukraine over the course of the next year, according to Czech President Petr Pavel.Kiev officials have long lamented the delayed delivery of weapons and other supplies that Western nations had pledged. In order to prepare for the harsh winter months, Russia has also started to rely on its military allies, such as North Korea and Iran, to stockpile artillery and munitions.The Czech leader went on, “Unfortunately, our deliveries of military equipment are not enough to allow Ukraine to continue the high-intensity operation,” citing the unfulfilled “promises” of European partners to provide artillery shells to Ukraine. Pavel added that Putin probably profited in recent weeks from the conflict in the Gaza Strip. He also says he does not believe Ukraine can currently gain “military superiority” over Russia, adding that “time is now on Russia’s side.”
