War with Russia enters new phase as Ukraine prepares to counter south

After months of painfully slow gains by Russian forces in eastern Ukraine, the war is focusing on the south, where a potentially decisive phase of the conflict will be played out.

Ukraine used long-range artillery and rocket systems, including the US M142 Himars, to halt massive Russian advances in the east, destroying munitions depots, command and control centers and air defense systems that appear to have limited Moscow’s ability to provide its front lines. Now, with the help of these Western weapons, Ukraine says it is mounting a counteroffensive to retake the southern port city of Kherson.
