I joined India’s WION News to knock back the propaganda line that other countries cannot afford to provide assistance to Ukraine.

The outlet puts up misleading arguments that the US and UK are in “economic crises” caused by the aid to Kyiv, with red herrings from the political fight in Washington over the Government debt limit to Britain’s Brexit-induced problems.

I set the record straight.

In the 15th month of Vladimir Putin’s invasion, Russia cannot advance any further — its offensive is exhausted.

The question is about a Ukrainian counter-offensive. For that counter-offensive, Kyiv must ensure it has supplies.
