The White House claimed a partial victory in Ukraine’s war against Russia, tempering Kyiv’s suggestion that a win would mean rolling Moscow’s territorial gains back to 2014.

But as Washington prepares to flood Kyiv with billions of dollars of military and economic aid, the White House press secretary said Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s failure to seize Ukraine’s capital and secure broad territorial gains was already a win for the U.S.
“Because President Putin will not be marching through the streets of Kyiv, we’ve already won in many ways,” Jen Psaki said.
