After Ukraine’s stunning battlefield successes, Putin responds with missile attacks on civilians, power and transport infrastructure – adding to his toll of war crimes. How is Ukrainian morale eight months into the war? And what happens next? Andrew Harrison talks to Ukrainian journalist, Reuters Institute fellow and disinformation expert Olga Tokariuk about life in Kyiv, Western democracies’ role in the struggle, and whether a cornered Putin would really use a nuclear weapon.
“Russia is deliberately and clearly attacking civilian targets.”
“Putin is threatening nuclear weapons as blackmail tactics.”
“You don’t have to be ethnically Ukrainian to feel close to Ukraine.”
