He met a strong resistance of the Ukrainian forces.Haines said that since May, U.S. intelligence has been working with the war in this first public statement on his relevant assessments, he stressed that the invasion of Russia could take a long time and that “the picture is quite depressing”. The intelligence agency predicts three scenarios of how the war could end, most likely, in which Russia slowly makes gains without making a breakthrough, he stated that it would continue as a heavily progressive war.
