There was plenty of competition for the biggest political story of the week just ended: banks failed, we were on the brink of an international banking crisis and the indictment of the immediately past American president loomed among other things. I’m focusing on Ukraine today.
The war in Ukraine has been going on for over six months now. With all else that is going on in the world it is easy to forget. That’s exactly what Vladimir Putin wants you to do and is his best chance to win.
