Why Ukraine's strategy is "stretch, starve, strike"
What is Ukraine's war plan? So much talk recently about the long-awaited counteroffensive has been negative, at least in the Western press. Is Ukraine's summer push failing? Not quite, says former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
"The Ukrainians are doing what the British call: 'stretch, starve and strike.' The stretching part of it is what we're seeing now, which is the probing to find the weak spots in Russian defenses. The starving part is hitting bridges, hitting munitions dumps, hitting railroad tracks, all of that, so that supplies can't get through to the Russians. And the striking part is, once they've made a decision as to where the Russians are weakest, then they will bring in the NATO trained and equipped troops to strike the Russians where they are the weakest," she tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.
