Is the tide of war turning in favor of Ukraine? And will it hurt Putin? | app

BERLIN – The scenes are jubilant: Ukrainian troops hoist their blue and yellow banners in towns and villages that Russian troops have controlled for almost seven months. Elderly residents emerge from sheds and cellars, nearly knocking over young soldiers with headlong hugs. Abandoned Russian tanks and armored vehicles lie abandoned in fields and streams.

Ukraine’s incredible battlefield successes in recent days in the northeast of the country are raising hopes inside and outside the country that the tide of war may be turning. Ukraine says it has liberated more than 1,200 square miles of territory since the start of September, including seizing 20 settlements in a 24-hour period.
