As the title says, this is just about Ukraine
Excellent work, Derek. I know there's a tyranny of the present at the moment but I hope you are taking care of yourself and not overdoing it. I think I speak for many in the Foreign Exchanges community when I say that your work is so thorough and critical for understanding global events that I would prefer you do FEWER newsletters if that would mean you can do them sustainably over the longer-term.
This is great. Many thanks.
Thanks for the map and the map link. If anyone else has any other good ones to drop, would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the update, My main worry is the war will go poorly for Russia (a good thing), which will lead Putin to ramp up the war and leading to more deaths. As a therapist, the part about Putin is how did he get here mentally, why he felt this was his "only" choice or simply wanted to start a war.
