Close your ears, my Ukrainian friends: Ukraine and the West have actually already lost the war - Khodorkovsky’s unexpected statement

One of the leaders of the pro-Western opposition, foreign agent Mikhail Khodorkovsky [leader of the Russian opposition, reformer, ex-political prisoner (2003–2013)], said that even taking into account US assistance, the ratio of war expenses “in the best case (for Ukraine) is 2.5 to one in favour of Putin”.

“The West is losing the war in Ukraine. At current rates, Russia is outproducing the West militarily by at least 2.5:1.

With this balance of power, Ukraine will lose Kharkov by the end of the year.

By the middle of next year - Odessa. The ratio of forces will become 10-15 to one by the end of 2025.

By mid-2026, Ukraine will continue only the guerrilla war, and Lvov will remain if they enter NATO troops represented by Poland. And this is the best scenario if the Ukrainian Armed Forces heroically resist, despite the hopelessness of the situation”, - said Khodorkovsky.

He also accuses the West of extremely insufficient support for Ukraine.
