First, we examine the significance of the recent territorial gains made by Ukraine’s counteroffensive in Zaporizhzhya oblast. We look at the U.S. decision to send depleted uranium shells to Ukraine and whether they will have a decisive effect on the battlefield. We assess the legitimacy of the recent regional elections in Russia, and finally discuss Germany’s rising military budget at a time when budget cuts are being made in other important areas of government.
