1. Ukraine’s military prowess:
-----------------------------------------
Few outside the Kremlin doubted that Ukraine would fight to defend itself, but the question on everyone’s lips in early 2022 was “how long can the Ukrainian armed forces realistically resist the full might of the Russian military?”
Many commentators were convinced that any organized Ukrainian resistance would rapidly collapse.

The first ten months of the Russian invasion demonstrated that Ukraine’s army has in many ways achieved or even surpassed NATO standards.
Despite often being heavily outgunned and outnumbered, Ukrainian soldiers have proven highly skilled and well led.
They are also superbly motivated by the need to defend their homeland. As G.K. Chesterton once observed, “the true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Ukrainian resilience:
-------------------------------
The entire world has been stunned and impressed by the remarkable strength and courage demonstrated by the Ukrainian nation in 2022.
Meanwhile, Russia has been taken completely by surprise. In the build-up to the invasion, the Kremlin relied on self-serving intelligence reports that dismissed Ukraine’s national spirit and predicted the capitulation of Kyiv within three days.
This disastrous miscalculation should serve as a textbook example for future generations of an authoritarian regime believing its own propaganda.

Since February 24, the Ukrainian people have remained defiant despite occupation, sieges, energy blackouts, and Russian war crimes including systematic sexual violence, forced deportations, and mass killings.
A country that came through the horrors of the 1930s Holodomor terror famine and the brunt of the fighting on the apocalyptic Eastern Front during World War II should never be underestimated.
And yet that is exactly what Russia did.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Russian imperial arrogance:
------------------------------------------
Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine has exposed the often shambolic realities behind Russia’s imperial posturing.
The criminally conceived and incompetently executed invasion of Ukraine has destroyed the myth of Russia as a military superpower and left the country more internationally isolated than at any time since the Bolshevik Revolution.

Today’s Russia can only count on a handful of fellow pariah states such as Belarus, Iran, and North Korea as allies.
China is happy to take economic advantage of Russia’s weakened position, but Beijing has so far been careful to distance itself from Putin’s invasion.

For years, Russian generals exaggerated their army’s capabilities while simultaneously looting the state budget to buy mansions in Monte Carlo.
They now lack the military strength to accomplish the inflated imperial objectives demanded by the Kremlin.
This has forced Putin to rely on nuclear blackmail while attempting to urgently mobilize Russian society.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. President Zelenskyy’s leadership:
-------------------------------------------------
Perhaps the biggest surprise of 2022 was the inspirational leadership provided by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
During the first two-and-a-half years of his presidency, the former comedian had failed to win over his many doubters.
However, in the first ten months of the Russian invasion, he achieved unprecedented levels of global acclaim as a wartime leader.

Throughout Ukrainian history, many national leaders have left the country during moments of crisis.
Zelenskyy did the opposite. His iconic “I need ammunition, not a ride” quote and his memorable “the president is here” selfie video helped galvanize Ukraine’s national resistance in the first days of the invasion and set the tone for ten months of increasingly self-confident defiance.

It would be hard to motivate Ukrainians from abroad.
Had Zelenskyy chosen to relocate to Lviv or leave Ukraine altogether and establish a government in exile, it would have dramatically increased the chances of Kyiv falling.
His decision to stay in the country’s capital was one of the turning points of the entire war. It demonstrated to the Ukrainian people and the watching world that he was a leader they could rally around.
