Former US Army Europe Commander Lt. General Ben Hodges says he thinks Vladimir Putin has badly miscalculated and will no longer be able to attack in Ukraine.

Hodges, who retired from active service in 2018, told Tim Sebastian that Russia is “close to culminating” and that the next ten days are critical.

Hodges said Ukraine needed to be supplied with as much military assistance from the West as possible and that he did not believe those around the Russian president wanted nuclear escalation.

Hodges also addressed reports that Moscow was seeking military assistance from China. “The Chinese have to decide what they want their role in the world to be.”
