WATCH: Antony Blinken Explains Why Putin is ‘Destined to Lose’ in Ukraine

Vladimir Putin has been hinting that he would invade Ukraine for a number of years. 2022 was the year that he decided to make the threat a reality. The operation, though, is going remarkably poorly. Rather than seeing the Russian troops as liberators, Ukrainians have seen them as invaders. Led by President Vladimir Zelenskyy, Ukrainian troops and civilians have become heroes.

The United States has lent Zelenskyy as much support as it can without taking an active part in the conflict. And during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, Antony Blinken explained why the Russians are destined to lose.

The Secretary of State told host Jake Tapper:

“Vladimir Putin has, unfortunately, the capacity with the sheer manpower that he has in Ukraine and the overmatch he has, the ability to keep grinding things down against incredibly resilient and courageous Ukrainians. I think we have to be prepared for this to last for some time. But just winning a battle is not winning the war. Taking a city does not mean he’s taking the hearts and minds of the Ukrainian people. On the contrary, he is destined to lose. The Ukrainian people have demonstrated they will not allow themselves to be subjugated to Vladimir Putin or Russia’s rule.”
