Russia's attitude towards West hardening - US official

United States Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines (pictured) said on Wednesday, during a Commerce Department conference, that Russia's "attitude towards West is hardening."

Haines noted that the "picture [regarding the war] remains pretty grim" as Russian President Vladimir Putin's political goals aimed at taking "most of Ukraine" have not changed.

Nevertheless, Haines underlined that the US sees a "disconnect between Putin's near-term military objectives in this area and his military's capacity," as Russian troops continue to struggle on the field.
