Russian spy chief warns America that Ukraine could become a “second Vietnam”
By Arsenio Toledo // Dec 11, 2023

The head of Russia's main intelligence service has warned the United States that its continued support for Ukraine would turn the conflict into a "second Vietnam" that would haunt Washington for years to come.

Sergey Naryshkin, director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, warned that Ukraine will turn into a "black hole" if the U.S. and Ukraine's other Western allies continue to funnel resources and people into it to support Kyiv's efforts to repel Russia from the country.

"Ultimately, the U.S. risks creating a 'second Vietnam' for itself, and every new American administration will have to try to deal with it," said Naryshkin.

For decades, the U.S. was engaged in conflicts in Vietnam, first in the form of military aid and advisors and then in the form of sending troops to South Vietnam. The U.S. justified its participation in the conflict due to the desire to stop the spread of communism during the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

The war killed between one to three million people, including nearly 60,000 American combatants, and inevitably ended in a communist victory in 1975. The U.S. spent $168 billion in Vietnam, or more than $1 trillion in today's dollars.

Naryshkin noted that this would be a reversal of the Western world's goal of turning the conflict in Ukraine into a "second Afghanistan" for Russia. Since these Western powers are unable "to achieve military victory" over Moscow, they are instead hoping to exhaust Russia in the "fight of potentials."

Naryshkin predicts Russia will get into further confrontations with Western powers, suggesting that the Cold War-like proxy conflicts the U.S. and its allies are trying to set up all over the world would once again draw in Moscow, possibly in the post-Soviet world and even in North America and the Pacific.

Biden wants to spend another $61 billion on Ukraine

Naryshkin's warning comes as President Joe Biden delivered a stern rebuke to Congress on Dec. 6 to agree to provide approximately $61 billion in additional emergency aid to Ukraine. Biden claims that, if Russia takes over Ukraine, Putin would go on to attack a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which in turn would compel the U.S. to send troops to Europe to defend its allies.

"We can't let Putin win. If Putin takes Ukraine, he won't stop there," alleged Biden. "We'll have something that we don't seek and that we don't have today: American troops fighting Russian troops."

Opposition to providing further aid to Ukraine has grown among Republicans, especially those in the House of Representatives, many of whom believe the U.S. – or rather, the American taxpayer – has already spent far too much for little gain.

"Congress needs to pass supplemental funding for Ukraine before they break for the holiday recess, it's as simple as that," said Biden, who accused Republicans of giving Putin "the greatest gift he could hope for" by stalling the effort to provide Kyiv with more assistance.
