Why is Ukraine losing the war against Russia? How do both sides think and operate? What were the mistakes on both sides? How did the West contribute to the Ukrainian defeat?

To answer these questions and many others, Jacques Baud draws on official information as well as American, Western and Russian documents. He explains how Russia understands and conducts the war. He shows how the West’s inability to grasp this reality and its determination to weaken Russia has backfired in Ukraine. Following on from the bestsellers Putin: Game Master?, Operation Z and Ukraine Between War and Peace, whose analytical work has been acclaimed worldwide and translated into several languages, the author returns to the war in Ukraine. He explains how Russia waged the war, and reveals how the image portrayed by the West led to Ukraine’s defeat.
