“The UK and our friends must respond by ensuring that Ukraine has the strategic endurance to survive and eventually prevail.”
“Everything will depend on whether Ukraine can strengthen its ability to defend its soil faster than Russia can renew its capacity to attack,” he added.

he told The Sun, “There is now a burning imperative to forge an Army capable of fighting alongside our allies and defeating Russia in battle.”
Referencing World War Two, General Sanders added, “We are the generation that must prepare the Army to fight in Europe once again.”
He continued, “I am the first Chief of the General Staff since 1941 to take command of the Army in the shadow of a land war in Europe involving a continental power.
“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine underlines our core purpose to protect the UK by being ready to fight and win wars on land.”
The former special forces commander said, the Army must “deter Russian aggression with the threat of force.
“It is my singular duty to make our Army as lethal and effective as it can be.
“The time is now and the opportunity is ours to seize.”
