Ukraine’s Western allies must commit to victory over Russia and not fall into “traps” laid by the Kremlin, Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas said in a Feb. 11 interview with the Austrian news outlet Der Standard.

Kallas has been a vocal supporter of Ukraine since the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion in early 2022.

“We should not fall into the various traps that have been set,” Kallas said when questioned about the war in Ukraine.

“It is a mistake to believe that the war can be won quickly. Russia is preparing for a long period of war. The war will continue until Russia realizes that it cannot win.”

Kallas’s strong words of support come as doubts rise regarding the long-term stability of Western aid to Ukraine.
