“The Russians are not winning, the Ukrainians are not winning, and we are in a kind of stalemate here,” Lieutenant General Berrier told the Senate Armed Forces Committee.
He added that currently eight to ten Russian generals have been killed.
Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Russia had not made “significant progress” in the Donbas, but its troops were slowly advancing.
Currently, a special operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is underway in Ukraine. It was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24. According to him, the purpose of military action is to demilitarize the neighboring country and to gentrify its officials.
