In Ukraine, there have been intensified attacks on ports like Odessa, causing significant damage and disruption. Ukrainian forces have reportedly made progress in pushing back against Russian forces in the south, though this is an ongoing battle. The Telegraph's podcast, "Ukraine: The Latest," provides daily updates and analysis on the war. These events highlight the importance of showing appreciation to loved ones and standing in support of those facing challenges.

    • Ukraine Conflict: Three Russian Divisions Defending a SalientThree Russian divisions, 76th Air Assault, 42nd Motorized Rifle, and 7th Air Assault, are believed to be defending a significant salient in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

      The ongoing conflict in Ukraine involves intense fighting and strategic maneuvers, with both Ukrainian and Russian forces making gains and counter-gains. The Ukrainian offensive in the south has resulted in a salient, or bulge, into Russian lines, and estimates suggest that Russian forces are defending this area with elements of at least three divisions. The 76th Air Assault Division is believed to be defending the western flank, the 42nd Motorized Rifle Division is defending the center, and the 7th Air Assault Division is defending the eastern flank. The exact numbers of troops and their capabilities are uncertain, but it's clear that this is a significant area of conflict. Reports indicate that Ukrainian forces have made some progress, but there is still a long way to go before they can fully secure the area. The situation is complex and constantly evolving, and it's important to keep in mind that information is difficult to come by and should be taken with a grain of salt.

    • Ukrainian forces using multi-pronged strategy to attack Russian positionsUkrainian forces are effectively splitting Russian forces and applying pressure on their weak points, potentially leading to their defeat

      The Ukrainian forces are using a multi-pronged strategy to attack Russian positions, using heavy artillery and infantry assaults while attempting to bypass towns from different directions. This tactic aims to give the Russians multiple problems to deal with, overloading their resources and ultimately leading to their defeat. Additionally, there have been reports of Russian authorities demolishing their Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Crimea following a suspected attack, indicating that the conflict in Ukraine is far from over. The Ukrainian forces' strategy of splitting enemy forces and applying pressure on their weak points has been effective in the past and could potentially yield significant results in the ongoing conflict.

    • Life returning to normal for some in Ukraine despite ongoing conflictDespite the ongoing conflict, some Ukrainians are experiencing a return to normalcy. However, fatigue and lower morale are evident, and the slow and costly push in the south raises concerns about the true cost to Ukraine. The collapse of a dam exposes a vast expanse of former riverbed, raising concerns about the impact on the landscape and economy.

      Despite the ongoing war in Ukraine, life is gradually returning to normal for many people, especially those who are not directly involved in the conflict. Checkpoints have become less common, and cities are quieter than before, with fewer people in the country overall. However, there are signs of fatigue and lower morale among some people, with a few privately questioning the official line about fighting to the end and reconquering every inch of Ukrainian territory. The push in the south, while moving in the desired direction, is slow and costly, with the true cost to Ukraine unknown. One notable change is the exposure of a vast expanse of former riverbed in Zaporizhzhia due to the collapse of the Kakava dam, raising concerns about the impact on the landscape and economy of central Ukraine. Overall, the situation remains complex, with both challenges and adaptations in the face of the ongoing conflict.

    • Ukraine-Russia Conflict: Casualties and the Complexity of Troop RotationThe Ukraine-Russia conflict results in significant casualties on both sides, and the decision to rotate troops is complex as they become more effective but also more exhausted.

      The ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia involves significant casualties on both sides, with the exact numbers being difficult to determine due to the secrecy surrounding military information. The Ukrainian forces, such as the 47th Brigade, have been fighting nonstop for months, and it's unclear how long they can keep going without reinforcements. The question of when to rotate troops out of the line of contact is a complex one, as they become more effective with experience but also more exhausted and susceptible to casualties. The war's outcome may depend on which side can degrade the enemy's manpower and logistics to the point of collapse. The costs of the battle should not be underestimated, and the war's long-term impact on both sides remains uncertain.

    • US Sending M1 Abrams Tanks to Ukraine for First TimeDebate in Washington over additional funding for Ukraine, potential rebellion within Republican party, and risk to $24 billion funding package.

      The US is sending M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine as part of a $350 million package, marking the first time these tanks have been in the country. However, there is growing debate in Washington about additional funding for Ukraine, with some Republicans expressing concerns and calling for more accountability. Kevin McCarthy, the House Speaker, has weighed in, potentially trying to appease a rebellion within his party without explicitly opposing support for Ukraine. This increasing controversy puts at risk a significant additional $24 billion funding package for Ukraine.

    • A debate on US government spending and international relationsRepublicans debate spending deal, potential government shutdown, and military aid to Ukraine, while some argue for competing with Russia to prevent a Russia-China alliance. The cost of living crisis and inflation fuel populist arguments against military spending, and the UK's Labour Party visit foreshadows potential international power shifts.

      There's a debate going on in the US political scene about government spending, specifically regarding a potential government shutdown and military aid to Ukraine. Some Republicans are opposing a spending deal, which could impact Kevin McCarthy's speakership. Meanwhile, in the UK, the opposition Labour Party's shadow foreign and defense secretaries, David Lammy and John Healy, have been visiting Washington D.C. ahead of an expected general election. On the international front, there's a debate among some Republicans, including front-runners like Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Vivek Ramaswami, about the role of the US in international relations and power balancing. They argue that competing with Russia could lead to a Russia-China alliance and long-term risks for the US. This debate is happening on multiple levels, from daily spending to international relations, and it may signal a shift in how the American right views power balancing. On the domestic front, the cost of living crisis and inflation are fueling populist arguments against military spending, making it a sensitive issue for some Republicans. The visit from the UK's Labour Party representatives may foreshadow a potential change in power dynamics in international relations if the party wins the upcoming election.

    • British Labour Politicians Seek to Reassure US on International RelationsLabour politicians David Lammy and John Healy are in the US to assure American officials of Labour's trustworthiness on international matters. Previous Labour leaders had controversial views on NATO and nuclear deterrents, potentially leading to diplomatic conflicts with the US over Ukraine support.

      British Labour politicians David Lammy and John Healy are currently in the US making diplomatic efforts to reassure American officials that the Labour Party can be trusted on international relations, defense, and foreign policy matters. Previous Labour leaders, such as Jeremy Corbyn, had controversial views on NATO and nuclear deterrents. With the possibility of Labour winning the upcoming British election and Donald Trump potentially winning the US election, there could be an interesting diplomatic conflict between the US and European NATO countries over support for Ukraine. The European Union and its members have recently surpassed the US in financial support for Ukraine. With Trump's call for Europe to pay more for its own defense, the EU and other European countries may be preparing for a less committed US and strengthening their own defense efforts. Keir Starmer, the Labour Party leader, has also been making statements towards Europe, but more information on that is needed.

    • UK's defense and Europe policy under Labour governmentA Labour government could lead NATO members to commit fully to defense budgets, support Ukraine, and increase diplomatic cooperation with the EU, potentially accepting more EU rules for enhanced security.

      The UK, under a potential Labour government, aims to lead NATO members in committing their full 2% to the defense budget, as European countries face challenges in making up for potential US spending cuts. This commitment to defense and support for Ukraine is seen as a shift from the UK's traditional stance on severing ties with Brussels. Additionally, a proposed new European security pact, which would include the UK, aims to increase diplomatic cooperation between the UK and EU. John Healy, a defense expert, suggests that a Labour government would not change the UK's policy towards supporting Ukraine. On a broader note, there may be more diplomatic cooperation and acceptance of EU rules under a Labour government, which could lead to additional measures for preventing terrorism. Overall, the UK's approach to defense, Europe, and international cooperation could shift under a Labour government, with a focus on increased collaboration and commitment to defense spending.

    • U.S. Decides to Provide Ukraine with Tactical Missile Systems, Type UnclearThe Biden administration is providing Ukraine with U.S. Army Tactical Missile Systems, but it's uncertain whether it will be the long-range or short-range version due to ongoing debate and potential concerns about escalation with Russia.

      The Biden administration has decided to provide Ukraine with U.S. Army Tactical Missile Systems, but it's unclear whether it will be the long-range precision version with a unitary warhead or the shorter-range cluster munition variant. The decision came after some suggestions that the U.S. might shift its position and after Jake Sullivan's comments hinted at the possibility of low U.S. stockpiles. There's ongoing debate about the real reasons behind the decision and what type of missile will be supplied, with some speculation about a secretive approach to avoid escalation with Russia. The U.S. is also developing a new precision missile system, which may allow for the transfer of ATACMS to Ukraine in the future. The situation is complex, and it's important to note that the U.S. and Ukraine are seeking everything, including all ranges of missiles, while the U.S. is concerned about its own defense capabilities and the potential for escalation.

    • Disparity between Western discourse and reality of military aid in UkraineWestern powers need to critically evaluate their understanding of modern warfare and the effectiveness of military aid in Ukraine, focusing on the experiences of ordinary soldiers and the role of technology like drones.

      There is a significant disparity between the Western discourse on military aid and the reality of its impact on soldiers in the field during the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. The speaker, who recently returned from Ukraine, emphasized the need for a critical self-evaluation by NATO and its members regarding their understanding of modern warfare and the effectiveness of their assistance. He highlighted the conversations he had with ordinary Ukrainian soldiers, who are not typically the focus of media coverage, and the absurdities of war they encountered, such as facing an enemy and then having an asthma attack. The speaker also mentioned the increasing role of drones in warfare, which can now infiltrate enemy headquarters undetected and cause damage, challenging traditional military strategies. The speaker's piece on the realities of war for the ordinary soldiers is available online and offers further insights into this topic.

    • Disconnect Between Ukrainian Approach and American PoliticsThe ongoing conflict in Ukraine requires a new narrative to shift political conversations towards supporting it, as the Ukrainian approach of personal appeals to politicians and visiting capitals has not been effective in changing the sentiment of Ukrainian skeptics, particularly on the American right.

      The ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the political conversations surrounding it are not aligning, and this disconnect could persist leading up to the American elections. The Ukrainian approach of personal appeals to politicians and visiting capitals may not be effective in changing the sentiment of Ukrainian skeptics, particularly those on the American right. A new case for the war needs to be made by NATO allies as well as the Ukrainians to bring these people back into the fold. The use of first person view drones in military operations is a new term we'll have to get used to. Overall, there seems to be a need for a new narrative to address the disconnect and shift the political conversation towards supporting Ukraine.

    Return to Bucha: how a community rebuilds after a massacre

    This episode is available now to Telegraph subscribers and will be available to everyone on the 17th July.


    In the first of The Telegraph's special podcasts on the war in Ukraine. Presenter David Knowles and Producer Adélie Pojzman-Pontay travel to Bucha and Hostomel, north of Kyiv, to hear the stories of citizens who survived Russia's brutal occupation in Spring 2022. 


    In Hostomel they meet Roman, a young Ukrainian man who fled his new apartment as Russian forces advanced. When he returned after the liberation he discovered the disgusting ways the occupying troops had treated his home.


    Then, they travel to Bucha to see an old friend, Ihor Savchenko. Two years on from the occupation of Bucha, Ihor is helping his community piece their lives back together even though the war threatens to engulf him once again. 


    We first met Ihor's daughter Katya in 2022 - listen to that episode here: https://shows.acast.com/ukraine-the-latest/episodes/658301371b4a0600176a40ee
