俄羅斯入侵。普京仍想占領烏克蘭大部分地區--美國

然而,莫斯科的部隊在戰鬥中被削弱得很厲害,美國官員估計他們只能緩慢地取得領土。

美國最高情報官員海因斯女士說,普京先生的目標仍然與他在衝突開始時的目標相同--占領烏克蘭的大部分地區。

"她在美國商務部的一次會議上說:"我們認為,普京在這一地區的近期軍事目標與他的軍隊能力之間存在脫節,他的野心與軍隊能夠完成的任務之間存在某種不匹配。

在她自5月以來首次公開評論美國的戰爭情報時,海因斯女士表示,俄羅斯的入侵將 "在很長一段時間內 "持續下去,"情況仍然相當嚴峻"。

她說,最可能的情況是,俄羅斯軍隊將長期專注於這場衝突,限制莫斯科更廣泛的軍事能力。

海因斯女士說,根據美國的情報評估,只要戰爭繼續下去,"俄羅斯軍隊就不太可能同時進行多次行動"。

這可能意味着莫斯科更加依賴 "不對稱工具 "來打擊敵人;包括網絡攻擊,努力控制能源資源,甚至核武器。

海因斯女士是在周三發表上述言論的,此前,北約領導人承諾,只要烏克蘭需要,他們就會一直支持烏克蘭--在整個歐洲加強駐軍,並邀請芬蘭和瑞典加入該集團。

"普京先生在訪問土庫曼斯坦時說:"如果北約的部隊和基礎設施被部署,[俄羅斯]將被迫作出回應。

Moscow's troops have been so weakened by combat, however, that US officials assess they are only capable of making slow territorial gains.

Mr Putin still has the same goals as the ones he held at the start of the conflict, the US's top intelligence officer Ms Haines said - to take most of Ukraine.

"We perceive a disconnect between Putin's near-term military objectives in this area and his military's capacity, a kind of mismatch between his ambitions and what the military is able to accomplish," she told a US Commerce Department conference.

In her first public comments of US intelligence on the war since May, Ms Haines' suggested Russia's invasion will grind on "for an extended period of time" and that "the picture remains pretty grim".

The most likely scenario would see Russian forces remaining preoccupied with the conflict for a long time, she said, limiting Moscow's wider military capabilities.

"Russian troops are unlikely to be able to conduct multiple simultaneous operations" for as long as the war grinds on, Ms Haines said, based on US intelligence assessments.

It may mean Moscow becomes more dependent on "asymmetric tools" to target its enemies; including cyber attacks, efforts to control energy resources and even nuclear weapons.

Ms Haines' comments came on Wednesday after Nato leaders pledged to stand behind Ukraine for as long as it takes - boosting their troop presence across Europe and inviting Finland and Sweden to join the group.

"If Nato troops and infrastructure are deployed, [Russia] will be compelled to respond," Mr Putin said while on a trip to Turkmenistan.
