The first days of Russian full-scale invasion showed little optimism for Ukraine in its fight against the aggressor. Foreign politicians, military experts and media speculated that Kyiv will fall to Russian troops – sooner rather than later – and that Ukraine did not stand a chance against the “second army of the world”.
On August 24th Ukraine celebrated its independence day that, at the same time, marked 6 months of an all out war. The war that Ukrainian military, leadership and people have chances to win against all odds. Reality of these 6 months has shown us that the myth of the “mighty Russian army” is just that – only a myth. While the media and the foreign public have grown somewhat accustomed to this and begin to get used to the war, Ukrainians keep living through the horror daily, and they keep up the good fight in spite of constant missile strikes, new horrendous discoveries of the Russian war crimes and all the destruction. Ukraine In Flames #173 provides a brief overview of the key numbers and important features of the Russian war against Ukraine for 6 months after February 24th.
