What's the Russian Word for "Chutzpah"?

October 6, 2022  •  City Journal

While threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction against Ukraine, Russia has repeatedly accused, without evidence, the United States and Ukraine of working with dangerous pathogens to make bioweapons in 30 labs across the country, in violation of a 1972 treaty banning such weapons. Though both Washington and Kyiv have denied the charges as "preposterous," Chinese media and those of other American rivals have widely disseminated Russia's claims as part of an effort to dilute American and allied support for Ukraine.

August 31, 2022  •  Fox News

Against Russia, Ukraine will lose a war of attrition

August 1, 2022  •  Fox News

As Russia's war on Ukraine staggers into sixth month, Ukraine is on the verge of a key shift in strategy. And belatedly, President Biden is providing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with some of the weapons he so desperately needs to implement it.

Until recently, Ukraine's military has been sustaining devastating losses trying to thwart the Russian onslaught in the Donbas, the eastern part of the country.
