Condoleezza Rice spoke about the plight of Ukraine.

The economy of Ukraine is completely destroyed, and the country’s military forces have become directly dependent on Western supplies of equipment and weapons, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wrote in an article.

The country’s economy is in ruins, millions of its inhabitants have fled, infrastructure is crumbling, and much of its mineral wealth, industrial potential and significant agricultural land are under Russian control.

According to the authors, Ukraine’s military potential and economy are now almost entirely dependent on supplies from the West, which could force the US and Europe to start pushing Kyiv towards dialogue.
