Hodges: Ukraine needs to get as much military assistance from the West as possible | Conflict Zone



Former US Army Europe Commander Lt. General Ben Hodges says he thinks Vladimir Putin has badly miscalculated and will no longer be able to attack in Ukraine.

Hodges, who retired from active service in 2018, told Tim Sebastian that Russia is “close to culminating” and that the next ten days are critical.

Hodges said Ukraine needed to be supplied with as much military assistance from the West as possible and that he did not believe those around the Russian president wanted nuclear escalation.

Hodges also addressed reports that Moscow was seeking military assistance from China. “The Chinese have to decide what they want their role in the world to be.”

  1. Four days ago, the US Congress promised anti-aircraft systems that will help protect from Russian fighter attacks, but they have not been delivered, as of March 19, 2022, nor do they even have a plan when they can arrive. How can we help? We can call and write our representatives. Ask one question: When?

  4. For enforcing US and NATO sanctions why should India be forced upon to comply with US imperialist foreign policy, India imports 80% of its fuel where as US imports less than 20% for its domestic use, This will cast a huge impact on our economy, or else US and NATO should provide us with fuel as per, pre-war market price, we can not be held liable for US imperialistic foreign policies ❗
    India and many other countries made to suffer for failed policies of NATO and US, India's Balance of payment and Foreign reserves are hugely going to be impacted.
    To prevent the war , NATO and US never agreed to restrain their eastward expansion and recognition of Cremia

  5. Admit it Russia will loose coz they take advantage the swift and sanctions while Russia had no enough strong weapon and they keep delivered weapons be fair when u fight let Russia buy weapons and u will see yourself in grave

  6. Actually weapons is not solution don't tell yourself u win the war u have dead people your city is fkn no more and can't see it anymore your people hungry and sick aand u keep seeking for weapons what a useless how can u have peace like that my god if u want peace give Putin what he wants

  7. Why western media hyped so much about lack of russian forces "progress" ? Do they remember Afghanistan? Its more or less the same size of Ukraine.The so call coalition forces took 20 years and still lost to taliban..just sayin.

  8. Arrogance will caused many lives to be lost… Putin is not going to stop…until the Ukraine is under his jurisdiction… And Putin has China's alliance… Best thing for Zekensky to do is lay it down before WWIII erupts…50 miles from the US is Russia…Alaska…50 miles from Miami is Cuba with Russian nuclear arsenals…checkmate

  9. Russia is lucky so-far that's because the WEST believes Putin's Bluffs. Putin is bluffing & bluffing . Example: Ukraine became independent Sovereign country after the Collapse of the Soviet Union . Putin permitted himself to enter & invade Ukraine turning infrastructure into heap-of ruble and destroying villages, towns and Cities all this Putin did based on his sick thoughts inside his rotten brain. So, why NATO thinks it cannot enter too into west of Ukraine to save what's left of it?????????????????????????????????????. NATO leaders have no shame when they say, " oh…because Putin said so ". Whose wife Putin is. Of course NATO forces can enter even now and save Ukraine. Is it possible that Biden/Democrats are punishing President Zelenskyy because he had good meeting with Trump at the White House??????. Pentagon knows Biden is wrong on this issue & he is the one who poured Cold-near Frozen water on NATO leaders turning them into wives for Putin. Putin is celebrating now saying to his generals , " you see, I told you Biden is mute ".

  10. Why Germany does not want to close NOrd Stream 1 and block gas and oil imports from Russia ?

    Will they close until the Russian army is on the streets of Berlin ?

    Has Germany not learned anything from history ?

    It is with German and French money that Putin is killing children in Ukraine !!!

    Mr. Scholz, please wake up at last !!!

    This is a shame for Germany for the next generation…

  11. Please stop showing Destroyed Russia tanks there no Russians Military in Ukraine. Ukraine Destroed all Russia Military the war is finish

  12. China believes Russia will winn. Perhaps they assume Putin will not yield nor accept the personal consequences of defeat. However, I do not believe his inner circle are likely to allow the situation to go on much longer. Besides, win or lose Putin is labeled as a war criminal with nowhere to go and the only way for Russia to rid itself of sanctions and the reparation costs of the war he started is his demise. Better soon then later.

  13. We must show the world that if anyone tries and prevents intervention or comes up with such threats as Putin has come up with. it must be responded to with an immediate attack where we do not spare anything! we help everyone who asks and that no one is excluded for help when they really need it !!! this can not be allowed !!! is this what we have NATO for, to exclude individual countries as they see fit? Then I think it's time to dissolve NATO if they do not change their attitude!!!

  14. Ukraine is used as a Pawn by Foreign Powers who wish to show their need to oerpower the world
    The media is well paid for publicity
    to help destroy lives of innocent children and all other citizens of the world
    Money can buy anyone the world is full of heartless people ready to be killed for money as in bribery and corruption

    Honestly which country in the right mind will want to waste MILLIONS in war defence and sacrifice billions in trade and finance for a normal country like UKRAINE ???
    *THE UNITED STATES AND NATO have willingly and knowingly terrorised the World with their BIO LABS and nuclear products

    *If they can motivate such huge expenses to destroy HUMANS with virus , it does not make a difference today or tomorrow WHO KILLS WHO AND HOW THEY KILLED THE MASSES
    *However it stands as PROOF, it belongs to America's Gain of Function research and has exhibited HOW LETHAL THESE BIO LABS are.
    The present Covid, Ebola and Omicron Virus is still making its rounds
    *The abuse of non killing thousands worldwide
    Non clinical Vaccines to treat the pandemic are not for recovery either *The manufacture of deadly VIRUS , careless use of NUCLEAR Medicine , Nuclear products on land, in oceans and in space has been deadly
    *SCIENCE has not discovered the true specifications of all the natural elements in the Periodic table
    *Science does not have the true origins of each of these elements (96) *Whatever nuclear products we have is a "shot in the dark"
    Nobody knows the consequences other than the ENERGY it provides
    *Radioactive Atoms may behave ,like a human embryo ,they start with a bit of the paternal element and evolve into a new individual element.
    *It is forever growing and making its own " tree of life"
    *The original elements will never change in their properties or specifications but how they react with new generations of volatile, radioactive atoms is another cup of tea
    *The action and reaction of the evolving radioactive elements with the natural elements ,has to take place to study,research or observe
    * Wars create more radioactive atoms to damage or choke essential elements
    *This activity alone has catapulted the WORLD to the doors of its own end as Nuclear Radioactive atoms are busy around us 24/7
    *Does it matter at all
    if the Citizens of the world die because of Deadly Virus, Deadly Vaccines or Deadly Nuclear War

  15. This interview was very insightful. But I don’t agree with the extreme position of Genral Hodges. He says Putin is bluffing with his nukes. What if he is not ? What’s at risk ? Nothing but World War 3 right ?… not much of a risk for anyone isn’t it ?

    Americans cannot fall into the Russian provocations. China is in its corner watching carefully with malice.

    If America engages in a nuclear confrontation with Russia, China will be left in a better position overall and that is something we cannot allow to happen. Democracy needs to prevail. The real adversary is China and the west should keep its strength to oppose China.

  16. There's a really good quote in that show Chernobyl and I'll paraphrase "the perception of our power is our greatest power".

    also.. how much grain does China and Russia import from Ukraine?

  17. The imperial West is over,the result of the hubaris and making Russia the boogy man for the US millitary industial complex will be the end of US Hegemony. No longer will it be able to act like the school yard bully with its weaponized economic sanctions which are still warfare against the citizens. The hypocracy of US with Lybia Iraq Syria etc is sickening
