The world is preparing for the worst for the Ukraine war after US Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Avril Haines announced Putin’s plan. The United States, which acted a few hours after Haines’ Putin remarks, made a flash decision for Ukraine.
The war, which began at 6:00 a.m. on February 24th on the orders of Russian President Putin, continues at full speed.
Russia aimed for a quick victory by downing the capital Kiev in the early weeks of the war, but later turned its course to eastern Ukraine.

PUTIN’S PLAN EXPLAINED
As the war in this region continues to take lives, the world has been alarmed, so to speak, by statements from the United States.
US Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Avril Haines announced ‘Putin’s plan’.
Speaking at a session of the US Senate Armed Services Committee called ‘Threats Around the World’, Haines said Putin was preparing for a war beyond the conflict in Donbas.
Underlining that Putin is preparing for an ‘extended war’ in Ukraine, Haines said: “We are not going to let this happen.
‘Even if the Russians achieve military success in eastern Ukraine, it won’t end the war. Because we assess that Putin is preparing for an extended war to achieve goals beyond Donbas.’
Haines said Putin needed strong mobilization in the Transnistence and Odessa regions and they believed he could not achieve what he wanted without doing so.
DOES PUTIN USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE NEXT SITUATION?
The Director of National Intelligence also explained under what circumstances Putin could use nuclear weapons.
Haines said the Russian leader could resort to nuclear weapons if he felt an existential threat to his country.
Russia’s ambassador to the United States said NATO did not take the threat of nuclear war seriously enough and would not be a ‘winner’ if it did, and explained under what conditions Moscow would use ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

In response to Moscow’s use of ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ against Russia and its allies, the Russian diplomat stated that it could use them in case of aggression against Russia or when the state’s presence is compromised.
NEW STEP FROM THE US: AID RISES TO $40 BILLION
The prolongation of the war has been described by security analysts as a ‘nightmare scenario’. Haines’s statement quickly hit the world agenda, and hours after those statements, a much-talked-about decision came from the United States.
The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a resolution that raises the amount of the $33 billion aid package president Biden has requested for Ukraine to $40 billion.
The resolution, in which 57 deputies voted ‘no’, was approved with 369 ‘yes’. Most of the funding will be allocated to Ukrainian defence.
For the package to be implemented, it must first pass the Senate and then the approval of US President Biden.
