The AFU even with the help of Western countries failed to break through Russian positions

Military support from Western countries has not helped the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) to overcome the Russian defence line, follows from a published article by Branislav Slanchev, professor of political science at the University of California, San Diego, and Hein Homans, professor of political science at the University of Rochester.

Scholars from American universities published an article that analyses the effectiveness of Western military aid to Ukraine, as well as the ability of the AFU to break through the defensive positions of the Russian army.

“The second year of the conflict should have revealed the main unknown: whether the Ukrainians, supplied and partially trained by the West, are capable of dislodging the Russians from their well-fortified positions. The answer, unfortunately, turned out to be no. The Kiev counter-offensive of 2023 failed and was unable to liberate more territory,” reads the material published in the magazine Foreign Affairs.

Earlier, German journalist Julian Repke said that Western weapons given to the Ukrainian army turned out to be unsuitable for a long conflict, showing low inefficiency.
