"If Russia wins, Germany will be the biggest loser. It will destroy trust in Germany, and make it a hostage to Russian nuclear threats. And Germany will again have millions of refugees," he said.

It is in Germany's interest for Ukraine to defeat Russia, said Hodges.

The American general added that Germany, Great Britain, France – all these are sovereign states that "can do more."
