“In November, when Ukraine captured Kherson, western military analysts began to speak of an ‘inflection point,’ the suggestion that Ukraine’s military gains may have reached an apex. They began to suggest that, ‘on the battlefield,’ Ukraine was ‘in the strongest possible position at the negotiating table,’ as the Biden administration had said the goal was. They began to suggest that the window for negotiating was now. … Months have passed, and parity may not have lasted. Ukraine has not retaken more ground. And they have suffered tragic losses of life as Russia has captured Soledar and is closing in on Bahkmut, key regions for the battle for Donbas.” (01/23/23)
