The War in Ukraine (3)

In the mass of news coverage of the war in Ukraine, I found the attached article by Lawrence Freedman very helpful: because it is not merely about the problems that Kyiv and Mairupol face, but about the broader issues that the Russians face – the scale of Ukraine as a whole and the fact that their massed armies are essentially so far only nibbling at the frontiers, however devastating and destructive that clearly is. Also, it’s relatively dispassionate at a time of ferocious emotion.
