... deranged war with Ukraine, the Russian president’s plans appeared to be going awry. Russian troops were deserting and others were being forced to scavenge for food, looting local supermarkets while armoured vehicles were being abandoned at roadsides, having run out of fuel. In Kharkiv, the advance into Ukraine’s second city was repelled on Sunday after fierce fighting and in Kyiv, the city’s mayor said Russian soldiers were no longer in the capital and that “saboteurs” continued to be “detected and neutralised”.
Putin had hoped the costly war - estimated at £15 billion a day - would be over quickly. The next 48 hours will be critical and there will be a deep, deep concern that the Russian military, in desperation, will use more violent weaponry against Ukraine’s civilians to force the country into submission. But for now Putin’s troops are bogged down and his war is a mess.
