She said both sides would try to “refit, resupply and reconstitute” for any counter-offensive in the spring.

“We’re seeing a kind of a reduced tempo already of the conflict… and we expect that’s likely to be what we see in the coming months,” Haines said. “But we actually have a fair amount of skepticism as to whether or not the Russians will be, in fact, prepared to do that,” she said and added, “I think more optimistically for the Ukrainians in that time frame.”
