No wonder Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump are best friends. No amount of gaslighting or tragic irony can trigger shame in either of them. The rampaging, “de-Nazifying” Russian army, which has spectacularly failed in its urgent campaign to capture—and likely torture—Ukraine’s Jewish president, has now damaged a second Ukrainian Holocaust...

An “operative lull” seems now ready to end. Bombardment resumes and the messaging about “foreign fighters” increases with the slowing of the Russian advance to take major cities. Smaller cities that have been captured are being repressed by Russians and some proxies with brutal efficiency. The war continues to be...
