According to the information spread on the Internet, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken allegedly said during a visit to Lithuania that the Russian army is far superior to the Ukrainian army and can “grind” it.

However, this is not true. The US Secretary of State did not make such a statement during his visit to Lithuania.

On March 6, in an interview with CNN, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that “Vladimir Putin has, unfortunately, the capacity, with the sheer manpower that he has in Ukraine and the overmatch that he has, the ability to keep grinding things down against incredibly resilient and courageous Ukrainians. ”

Antony Blinken also added that winning a battle is not winning a war, and Putin is destined to lose.
