US wants to see debilitated for Russia

International desk
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has said he trusts Russian losses in Ukraine will dissuade its leadership from repeating its activities somewhere else.

Ukraine can still win the conflict if, given the right support, he said.

He additionally declared the US would allocate an extra $713m (£559m) of military guide to Ukraine and other European nations.

At a news conference in Poland after the visit, Mr. Austin told reporters the US wants to see "Russia weakened to the extent that it can't do the kinds of things that it has done in attacking Ukraine".

Mr. Austin, a retired four-star general, was speaking after meeting Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv. Also involving Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the visit denoted the highest-level trip to Ukraine by US officials since the invasion began over two months ago.

The meeting between the US and Ukrainian parties, which ran for over three hours, comes as Russia escalates its military campaign in the south and east of the country.
