Timing critical in Ukraine war which will go on for a very long time, retired general says

A retired British Army General says timing is critical to retaining the initiative in the Ukraine war, which, he says, will go on "for a very long time".

Former Commander, Joint Forces Command, General (Ret'd) Sir Richard Barrons told Forces News it is key to "where to act, when to act, and doing it with sufficient force to win".

Ukraine's targeting of Russia's logistic hubs and lines of communication has exacerbated Moscow's shortage of munitions, according to the Ministry of Defence.
