Ukraine: the risk of a ceasefire dwindles
The flow of weapons from the West will continue, and Ukraine will be far readier to launch a sustained and decisive offensive in the spring than it is now.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's offensive was stumbling to a halt on all fronts, but by then Moscow controlled about 20 per cent of Ukraine’s territory. Moreover, Russia controlled almost all of Ukraine’s coast, leaving it only Odesa and a few satellite ports in the far west. Image courtesy of Donkey Hotey
