It is unlikely that Ukraine will recover all its internationally recognized sovereign territory this year, according to America’s highest-ranking general.

The claim was made by General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, during an interview with Defense One, a U.S.-based outlet that specializes in military coverage.

Russia has seized substantial chunks of Ukraine, starting with Crimea in 2014 and intensifying in February 2022, when Vladimir Putin ordered a full-scale invasion. Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has vowed to retake this territory, with the assistance of considerable military aid from the United States and other western powers

Speaking to Defense One on Friday, General Milley said he doesn’t expect Ukraine to recapture all its land this year.
