As the newspaper writes, the Pentagon is checking wrong predictions about a full-scale war between Ukraine and Russia. Also, the representatives of the USA did not expect that they would be drawn into a major international conflict, which could drag on for years. Washington’s total miscalculations in the forecasts were fatal.
“The US special services correctly reported on the possibility of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, while at the same time they underestimated the scale of hostilities,” the article says.
One official said that Europe’s biggest land conflict since World War II has left the world’s most powerful and expensive intelligence agencies at a standstill right here in the United States. Former high-ranking US officials note that the intelligence community is analyzing its failed forecasts for Ukraine.
“One of the fundamental problems of the Russian Federation was that it failed to achieve air superiority over Ukraine. The Russians left their troops open to attack. Even when they captured airfields, there was no normal air support, their units were quickly destroyed,” – a former official of the Ministry of Defense USA Jeffrey Price.
- We will remind you that Boris Johnson said that at the beginning of the full-scale aggression of the Russian Federation, the German authorities believed that it would be better for Ukraine to surrender, and the French refused to believe it until the last moment.
