More than six months into the Russian invasion of Ukraine, no end appears to be in sight. But could Russia save face by simply exiting the conflict with a victory narrative? And, would that satisfy the Ukrainians?
This article by Dan Perry, writing for The Times of Israel, makes the following points:
- Ukraine initially demanded a return of the territories seized by Russia since February.
- But now vows to fight for Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014.
- Russia’s economy has not collapsed, regardless of the tough economic sanctions.
- Despite a poor military performance, Russia now occupies almost a quarter of Ukraine’s territory.
