THEUkraine and its allies should prepare for a long war. This is what the weekly "The Economist" writes. The hope that the counteroffensive, thanks to the supplies of modern weapons from the West, could lead to a rapid reconquest of the territories occupied by Russia was betrayed, despite Ukrainian efforts. Moscow shows no intention of wanting to negotiate with the president Vladimir Putin He is counting on Ukraine's allies to get tired and Donald Trump to win the US presidential election again. Kiev and its supporters must therefore be ready for a long war and this requires “rethinking military strategy and economics”.
“Instead of aiming to 'win' and then rebuild, the objectives should be to ensure that Ukraine has the capacity to wage a protracted war,” the British publication wrote. All this requires the political will of Ukraine, but also of its allies in the West. “In the long term, the best guarantee for Ukraine's security is NATO membership,” it says. “Equally important is what the European Union can offer: not just money, but the prospect of membership.” For this to happen, specifies "The Economist", a change of mentality is needed in Europe, which must "strengthen the defense industry and reform the EU decision-making process so that it can manage more members".
