The Biden administration warned that Russian forces are expected to intensify their military operations in Ukraine after weeks of stalled ground advances.
National security advisor Jake Sullivan said Pentagon officials believed Russia was revising its goal for the war after failing to capture Kyiv.

For the past five weeks, Russian forces on the ground in Ukraine have been beset with a slew of logistical problems on the battlefield, including reports of fuel and food shortages.

Vladimir Putin’s forces have been defeated at Kyiv, but he’s not done with their invasion yet, U.S. officials said.

“When Russia started this war, its initial aims were to seize the capital of Kyiv, replace the Zelensky government and take control of much if not all of Ukraine,” national security advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters at the White House, adding “Russia believed that it could accomplish these objectives swiftly and efficiently.”

He said U.S. officials believed the Kremlin is now revising its goal in the war. “Russia is repositioning its forces to concentrate its offensive operations in eastern and parts of southern Ukraine, rather than target most of the territory,” Sullivan said, citing the military’s failure to capture Kyiv.

For the past five weeks, Russian forces on the ground in Ukraine have been beset with a slew of logistical problems on the battlefield, including reports of fuel and food shortages.

“All indications are that Russia will seek to surround and overwhelm Ukrainian forces in eastern Ukraine,” Sullivan said. “We anticipate that Russian commanders are now executing the redeployment from northern Ukraine to the region around the Donbas.”

He added that Russia’s renewed ground offensive in eastern Ukraine will likely also “include air and missile strikes across the rest of the country to cause military and economic damage, and frankly, to cause terror.”

A senior U.S. Defense Department official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details of the Pentagon’s thinking, said the Kremlin has moved about 65% of its forces near Kyiv to Belarus.

The official said the Pentagon believes those Russian troops are being resupplied with additional manpower in Belarus before deploying back to the fight in Ukraine. When asked where the troops would likely go, the official said the Pentagon believes the majority of them will move to the Donbas region.

The official added the U.S. believes the “vast majority” of Russian forces are still in Ukraine and that Kyiv is still under threat.

Later on Monday, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby didn’t offer specifics surrounding how the U.S. expects Russian forces will reorganize.

“We don’t believe that this is a complete withdrawal from the war effort. These guys are not going home, I guess is the main point,” Kirby said, adding that the Pentagon was “not able to perfectly predict exactly how they’re going to reform their units.”

When pressed, Sullivan didn’t provide a timeline of how long the U.S. expects the war will last.

“It may not be just a matter of a few more weeks,” Sullivan said. “This next phase could be measured in months or longer,” he added.
