War in Ukraine


A leading UK defense think tank has recommended international partners start investing more resources now, especially with thoughtful artillery support, to support Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia this winter and into 2024, while criticizing them for failing to “address identified requirements with sufficient alacrity” previously. The recommendation features in a report published on Monday from London’s Royal United Services Institute and looks at a case study of warfighting trends and tactical decisions taken over a two week period during fighting in the villages of Novodarivka and Rivnopil, straddling the borders of Donetsk and the Zaporizhzhia oblast.
