The Ukraine War’s Second Crucial Battle Is About to Begin

From a story on by Jamie Dettmer headlined “This Is Ukraine’s D-Day:

Ukraine is on the cusp of what may well prove to be one of the two key battles of the war that was unleashed on it by Russia.

The first was Ukraine’s successful defense of Kyiv over a year ago. Russia had a plan, but it was badly executed — Ukraine didn’t have much of one and, greatly assisted by Western-supplied Javelin and NLAW anti-tank missiles, winged it. Eventually, Russia’s overly cocky and poorly commanded forces were outmaneuvered by the agility, bravery and improvisational skills of Ukraine’s forces.
