British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told a group of European reporters that Britain’s defence intelligence organisation expects that Russia’s momentum in the battle in Ukraine will slow in the coming months as its army uses up its resources.

Johnson claimed that President Vladimir Putin’s forces were advancing in the eastern Donbas region, causing havoc but at a high cost in soldiers and weapons, in remarks published on Wednesday by Germany’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

“Our defence intelligence service believes, however, that in the next few months, Russia could come to a point at which there is no longer any forward momentum because it has exhausted its resources,” Johnson was quoted as saying in the interview.

“Then we must help the Ukrainians to reverse the dynamic. I will argue for this at the Group of Seven summit (in Germany at the weekend),” he said.

“In as much as the Ukrainians are in a position to start a counter-offensive, it should be supported. With equipment that they demand from us,” he said.

Asked what a victory for Ukraine, or failure for Putin, would look like, Johnson said:

“That we at least regain the status quo that was there before Feb. 24 and that its (Russia’s) troops are repulsed from the areas they invaded”.
