BLUFVox magazine article that argues Russia is losing the war in Ukraine.
Zack Beauchamp, a senior journalist at Vox magazine, an online news journal, makes the following points to support his contention that as of 18 Mar 2022, Russia is losing the war in Ukraine:
- Russia has failed to conquer Kyiv.
- Uk Defence Intelligence Agency considers that Russian advance has stalled on all fronts.
- Russian casualties have been very high.
- Ukraine's military has proven more competent than was at first thought.
- Russia expected to win quickly and was not prepared for a long war.
- Russian morale among its conscripts appears low, whereas Ukrainian morale appears high.
- It's still too early to say who will win, but it looks unlikely that Russia will achieve all of its objectives.
When reading about the 2022 Russo-Ukraine conflict, it is essential to be aware of 'Confirmation Bias' when reading the news. This from Britannica:
confirmation bias, the tendency to process information by looking for, or interpreting, information that is consistent with one's existing beliefs
