„Strategic patience and endurance are needed in a situation where we must tighten all the places where these sanctions are not airtight,” said Dr. Małgorzata Bonikowska on the program „Gość wydarzeń” on Polsat [22.06.2023]
What the Western coalition is trying to do is to maximize attention and concentrate efforts to prevent the Ukrainians from losing this offensive. It’s not an offensive that will end in one or two days. It may last for several months. Strategic patience and endurance are needed, in which all the loopholes in the sanctions need to be tightened as much as possible,” said Dr. Bonikowska.
On the other hand, there is a need to provide maximum support to the Ukrainian army in pushing back the Russians wherever possible. It’s a very difficult operation, and it’s evident that the successes of the Ukrainian army are very slow,” she added.
