Ukraine will be forced to accept a ceasefire agreement on Russia’s terms if it does not receive the necessary weapons, journalists said.
Ukraine may lose the war if it does not receive help from the European Union and the United States. This was reported by Bloomberg.
“If Ukraine doesn’t have the support of the EU and the US, then Putin will win,” Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said at a European Union summit last week.
What will happen if Putin wins the war
European officials believe Russia may seek to seize more territory if Ukraine does not receive the weapons it needs to defend the country. In their opinion, Ukraine will be forced to accept a ceasefire agreement on the Russian Federation’s terms.

In the Baltic states, officials are telling the public to be prepared for war. In particular, conversations have moved from “if Russia attacks” to focusing on specific preparations for this.
“Russia is not afraid of NATO,” said Estonian Army Commander-in-Chief Martin Gorem.
According to him, the Russians could attack NATO within a year after the war in Ukraine. But other Western officials believe Putin likely needs several years to recoup his losses. But the assertion that an invasion would be a “strategic defeat” for Putin has disappeared, journalists said.
One Western official said that a Russian victory could provoke a flow of refugees into the EU, increase pressure on services in these countries and create tension. In addition, other officials noted that some European countries may seek to strengthen ties with Moscow or Beijing to avoid having to rely on an “unreliable US.”
Let us recall that on December 19, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said that Ukrainians must fight. According to him, if you get to the line where the invasion began, no one knows what will happen next.
On December 18, the commander of the K-2 battalion of the 54th separate mechanized brigade named after Hetman Ivan Mazepa, Kirill Veres, said that he did not see any options for winning the war. He noted that we do not win, but survive.
