US intel chief thinking ‘optimistically’ for Ukraine forces

Canada Global (Web News) According to the director of US intelligence, the battle in Russia’s conflict in Ukraine is moving at a “lower speed” and Ukrainian forces may face better chances in the months to come.
Avril Haines made a passing reference to previous claims made by some that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s advisors may be protecting him from unfavourable developments regarding the conflict, saying that he “is becoming more informed of the issues that the military faces in Russia.”
At the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California, the US director of national intelligence said late Saturday, “But it’s still not evident to us that he has a comprehensive view of at this moment just how difficult they are.”

In the near future, according to Haines, “honestly we’re seeing a kind of a slowed tempo of the fight,” and her team anticipates that both sides will attempt to replenish, reorganise, and re-equip themselves for a potential Ukrainian counter-offensive in the spring.
However, she added, “We genuinely have some doubts about whether the Russians will truly be willing to do that. And I have a more positive outlook for the Ukrainians throughout that time.
While pounding locations in Kherson, which Ukrainian forces recovered last month after an 8-month Russian occupation, Russia’s military priority in recent weeks has been on attacking Ukrainian infrastructure and advancing an offensive in the east, close to the town of Bakhmut.
