Heappey warns a ‘Ukraine defeat’ will cost the West ‘trillions in a new Cold War’



The former Armed Forces Minister James Heappey has warned that if Ukraine is defeated this will then cost the “West trillions in a new Cold War,” in an interview with The Telegraph.

The former Minister said Ukraine needs more military aid packages to win the “security across the whole European – Atlantic region.”

Heappey added, “A stalemate or, heaven forbid, a Ukrainian defeat promises a new Cold War that will last for decades and cost trillions of dollars more.”

Last week the US President Joe Biden signed off a $60.84 billion package, which is still yet to reach Ukraine.

The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has also announced a £500 million military support package for Ukraine, with hundreds of armoured vehicles, four million rounds of ammunition for small arms and 60 boats.

Heappey warned that despite the pledges this will not “immediately balance the situation” on the front, but this will allow Ukrainians to begin “a final offensive that brings a quick and complete victory.”

If Ukraine is continuously armed then they could possibly be able to win against Russia next year or in 2026, but if they are not armed properly then the war could be over within six months.

A former US Lt and military expert has warned that Russia will “win” the war and it is “almost impossible for Ukraine to win.”

Speaking to GB News Lt. Daniel Davis said if you take the emotion out of it and simply look at the balance of the power on both side, Ukraine does not have “the manpower pool.”

Speaking with Jacob Rees-Mogg on GBN America Lt. Davis was asked if the $61 billion in US military aid will make a difference.

He replied, “Unfortunately not. This is almost entirely a transactional political issue.

“I don’t think many people really believe this will make a difference on the battlefield and as a military guy, this won’t change much on the tactical front.”

Lt. Davis was then asked if he believes that therefore Russia will “win” the war, he said, “It does.”

Lt. Davis added: “I have to say it point blank, even though a lot of people won’t like hearing that.

“If you take the emotion out of it and you look at the balance of power of both sides, the relative current balance and the way things are going, especially on the manpower pool, those categories alone make it almost impossible for the Ukraine side to win.”
