With Russia's invasion of Ukraine now in its third month, Kiev's military is doing exactly what Moscow's President Vladimir Putin hoped to avoid.
Defense specialists believe that the Ukrainian army has outlasted Putin's expectations and is benefiting from Western hardware and training.
The majority of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) member countries are providing both military and humanitarian support to Ukraine.
"We believe they can prevail provided they have the necessary equipment and assistance," said US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
According to the Pentagon commander, the US is "going to keep pushing heaven and earth so that we can satisfy" Kyiv's requests.
Washington thinks that an extra $713 million in foreign military finance for Ukraine would weaken Russia to the point that it will be able to strike any other country.
Ukraine's foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, stated, "It will be true to say that the United States today leads the effort in securing Ukraine's transition to Western-style weaponry, in providing training for Ukrainian forces."
"I only regret that it didn't happen a month or two months ago from the very beginning of the battle," he said, expressing his dissatisfaction.
Following a meeting with Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated, "In terms of Russia's war objectives, Russia has already failed and Ukraine has already triumphed."
Before invading Ukraine, Putin stated that he will not allow Western efforts to make Ukraine a de facto NATO member.

Although Zelensky launched the process of joining the European Union and NATO, it was put on hold after Russia urged that Ukraine abstain from them during the peace talks in Belarus.
Ukraine's chances of building a successful defense have been boosted by its improved ties with NATO since Russia invaded the nation on February 24.
