The war was not a success since the Ukrainian forces showed they were strong enough to withstand any Russian invasion. They were able to rebuff the invaders supported by Western backing, and launched an offensive of their own in the spring.
In spite of Western assistance to military operations and an influx of guns pouring into Ukraine’s arms store and arms store, it seems that the war may be settling into a long and attritional conflict that is likely to be a test for Ukraine’s strength and that of the west. Russia could lose any significant advantage and even become weaker in the months to come.
America is slipping to “Ukraine Fatigue”.
The senior officials of the government warned that Ukraine conflict may have been putting a strain on America.
It is an area that has to be taken into consideration. This could be the reason the reason why the Biden administration approves more weapons to Ukraine over the previous year. The list includes hundreds of Bradley combat vehicles, Strykers, Humvees, and mobile howitzer systems.
However, there’s an additional condition that requires the machine to be shipped to Poland along with other NATO countries to be repaired. This means Ukrainian troops must wait for several weeks waiting to arrive, and at a cost to their operations.

The U.S. Must Do More
Despite the horrific challenges the conflict brings however, even with the harrowing challenges, the United States has so far managed to provide military and non-military aid to help Ukraine. This aids in improving the living conditions of Ukrainians, keeps their dedication to fight the war and builds the base for an orderly life after the war has ended.
But the most important thing to success is to make peacetime assistance as efficient as is possible. It requires the cooperation of those in the U.S., Ukraine, and Western allies in developing the strategy, plan and execution of a post-conflict recovery assistance effort that could bring the kinds of improvements in living conditions, civil infrastructure and stability vital to the future chances of peace.
