This article argues that Russia's invasion of Ukraine has failed due to courageous and effective Ukrainian resistance, resulting in Russia suffering considerable casualties and loss of equipment.


Alexey Kovalev writing in Foreign Policy, makes the following points:
  • Corruption permeates the Russian military chain of command.
  • Russian social media shows fresh conscripts without food, uniforms, or other equipment.
  • Recent events have shown Russia's conventional forces to be weak, poorly organised and ineffective.
