The Heat: Russia-Ukraine Conflict

Over the weekend, the Ukrainian military claimed to have recaptured big chunks of Russian-occupied territory in Ukraine’s northeast and southern regions. 

Moscow has responded by saying everything is still going to plan, and that it will achieve its goals. After seven months, is the conflict entering a new phase?
