Russia Ukraine war UPSC NOTE


  • Russia’s missile strikes across Ukraine, claiming at least 38 lives

  • Among the civilian locations hit was the Okhmatdyt Children’s Hospital in Kyiv, where at least two people were killed, according to Ukrainian authorities. 

  • Russia says it targeted military and industrial bases and blamed Ukraine’s missile defence for the damage to the civilian centres

  • Attack came on the eve of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) summit in Washington, where member-countries are expected to take decisions on long-term commitment for Ukraine, including a €40 billion annual military aid. 

  • Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was in Warsaw where he signed a new security pact with Poland, which empowers the NATO member-country to shoot down Russian missiles and drones in the Ukrainian airspace. 

  • Russia’s attack could be the Kremlin’s way of messaging NATO and Poland, but the strikes on civilian centres only expose the callousness of Russia’s war leaders.

  • Russia has made incremental territorial gains in recent months

  • Its troops have advanced in the Kharkiv Oblast, taking several villages. 

  • But the absence of dramatic gains, even in the face of Ukraine’s weakness, has raised questions about Russia’s capabilities. 

  • Ukraine may be struggling to hold the frontline but it has taken the drone war to the Black Sea and Russia’s mainland. 

  • It has incapacitated Russian ships, repeatedly targeted Russia’s energy depots using drones and struck Russia’s border regions causing civilian and military casualties. 

  • Two and a half years after the war began, no side is seen capable of finding a military solution

  • For Ukraine, pushing Russian troops out of the territories they have captured looks practically impossible. 

  • Russia should also realise that its aggression has rejuvenated NATO, its sworn enemy, that has expanded since the war began and promised Kyiv long-term assistance. 

  • A practical path ahead is to bring both sides to the table. 

  • China’s President Xi Jinping said that world powers should help them hold talks. 

  • Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in Moscow, also expressed India’s support for dialogue.
