Ukraine has succeeded in driving the Russian forces out of the Kharkov region to a line of defense behind the Oskil river. Russia has held referendums in four oblasts and has formally incorporated this territory into Russia.

This has been one of those weeks. It began with the commencement of referenda in four former Ukrainian oblasts to determine whether or not to join the Russian Federation, accompanied by Putin’s announcement that reservists would be called up to augment the force deployment in Ukraine. Further excitement bubbled up from the Baltic seabed with the mysterious destruction of the Nordstream pipelines. Nuclear rumors circulate, and all the while the war on the ground continues.

Looks like, “We are just getting started.”
