Biden: Ukraine has made progress, hard to tell if war at turning point

- Ukraine has made significant progress as it pushes back Russian forces but it is possible to tell if the war is at a turning point, U.S. President Joe Biden said on Tuesday.

Asked whether Ukraine has reached a turning point in the war, he said: "The question is unanswerable. It’s hard to tell. It’s clear the Ukrainians have made significant progress. But I think it’s going to be a long haul."
