Vladimir Putin will “probably” impose martial law in Russia to support the war effort, announces the head of American intelligence Avril Haines.

Vladimir Putin does not intend to limit his desire for occupation to the Donbass region of Ukraine alone, but wants to take the conflict to Transdniestria, a region of Moldova which seceded in 1990, declared Tuesday the head of the US Intelligence, April Haines.

“We believe President Putin is preparing for a protracted conflict in Ukraine, during which he still intends to achieve goals beyond Donbass,” Haines told a congressional hearing. US intelligence believes that the Russian military wants to “extend the land bridge (in southern Ukraine) to Transdniestria”, she added. If it is “possible” that the Russian forces achieve this objective in the coming months, “they will not be able to reach Transdniestria and include Odessa without decreeing a form of general mobilization”, she added.

Mr Putin’s ambitions exceed the capabilities of the Russian military, she said, and that “probably means that we will move in the coming months on a more unpredictable trajectory and potentially an escalation”, added Ms Haines.
