From a Wall Street Journal story by Samuel Ramani headlined “Five Best: Books on the Changing World Order”:

The Russo-Ukrainian War
By Serhii Plokhy (2023)

1. Russia’s brutal 2022 invasion of Ukraine shattered an already-fraying system of European security. Yet Ukraine’s spirited resistance has derailed Vladimir Putin’s neo-imperial dreams, providing the world hope for a more secure future. In “The Russo-Ukrainian War,” Serhii Plokhy presents a deeply personal yet soberly analytical examination of these two developments. He explores how the stark contrast between Russia’s authoritarian path and Ukraine’s nascent democratic course placed both countries on a collision course.
