Invasions may be harder than they look.

It’s unwise to go to war with an army that hasn’t had much practice against serious opponents.

He made it all the way to Slovakia from the city of Zaporizhzhia, the site of Ukraine’s largest nuclear power plant which was captured by Russian forces last week.
