The chairman of the Lithuanian Seimas Committee on National Security and Defense, Laurinas Kasciunas, believes that Russia is not ready for a conventional war against the West, and it will take five to seven years to restore its capabilities after the invasion of Ukraine.
His statement is quoted by LRT.
"I agree with those who say that Russia is not ready for a large divisional conventional war, it will take several years to restore its capabilities, especially if some kind of truce is established according to their rules," Kasciunas said during a speech in the Seimas.
At the same time, he said, other hybrid scenarios are possible, such as invasions without the intention of occupation or attacks on strategic facilities.
"A hybrid field, a gray zone, an invasion without the purpose of occupation, Hamas scenarios that we saw in Israel, sabotage against strategic objects," the Lithuanian MP added.
