The congressman opposed sending new military aid to Kyiv, because Ukraine will never be able to surpass Russia militarily, writes The Hill.

"It's in America's interest to recognize that Ukraine is going to have to cede some territory to the Russians, and we need to end this war," Vance argued in an interview with CNN.

The senator said that it is in the interests of the people of Russia and Ukraine, as well as in the interests of the United States, to "stop the deaths" of people.

The Kremlin previously noted that the West would like to see Russia's defeat in the Ukrainian conflict, but what is happening on the battlefield suggests that the opposite is inevitable.

As Russian President Vladimir Putin emphasized, the Ukrainian authorities were completely "freaked out" when they declared Russians a non-indigenous nation in Ukraine.
