Keys to the new phase of the war in Ukraine: Russia’s goal now is Donbass

Retired Lieutenant General Pedro Petarch analyzes for ABC the keys to the first year of the war in Ukraine and the possible new phase of escalation. Especially in Donbass, the eastern region of Ukraine where the Russian military is expected to put all the meat on the grill to gain ground. “The main objective of the Russian forces is the Donbass and the corridor from Rostov-on-Don to the Crimea,” reckoned this three-star general who once commanded Eurocorps and the army’s ground forces.

In addition, there is the threat posed by the entry of Belarusian forces from the north into battle. And what tanks did NATO countries promise to Ukraine? Can they tip the scales on the Ukrainian side? Heavy main battle tanks, which have been approved by the Contact Group for Ukrainian Support, will take time. I don’t think anyone is offering the most modern and practical material. Almost everyone goes for the older, and therefore less practical, less powerful ones. The Spanish case is typical.
