The head of US national intelligence estimated the chances for a truce between Russia and Ukraine

US Director of National Intelligence Avril Haynes said that the US at this stage does not see the possibility of reaching a peace agreement between Russia and Ukraine.

“You know, frankly, at this stage we do not see the possibility for both sides to come to a peace agreement, which I think is obvious to everyone,” Haynes said.

At the same time, Haines did not explain what, in her opinion, such a forecast is based on.

On Wednesday, her White House colleague John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the US National Security Council, made the statement that Washington sees no interest on the part of Moscow in a peaceful dialogue with Kyiv. In this regard, Kirby noted, the United States and its allies intend to continue military assistance to Ukraine.
