"We understand full well that if HIMARS had reached Ukraine earlier, the Mariupol tragedy might not have happened,” the diplomat said.

“The Ukrainians simply stood 100 kilometers from this city, they were separated by a flat area, they could not move the front line and were forced to idly watch the tragedy of their comrades.”

Cichocki also said that he has no doubts about the victory of Ukraine, unless there is "some incomprehensible twist" that will force the West to give up its support for Kyiv.

At the same time, he noted that the victory of Ukraine is a matter of time, mass destruction, and sacrifices.

“We have to ask ourselves, are we going to watch Ukraine bleed out, eventually win, and then recover for decades, which will also lead to a long-term state of instability along our borders,” he asked.

“Or we will now make even more effort and accelerate this victory and, as a result, shorten the recovery period.”
