As water from the decimated Nova Kakhovka dam floods the areas surrounding river Dnipro, both Russia and Ukraine blame each other for the destruction. For months now, we have been hearing news about Ukraine’s pending counteroffensive to push back against Russia’s invasion. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been trying to fortify the response by asking for weapons training and financing from NATO members in preparation. Now, Zelenskyy has announced the counteroffensive has begun. The dam has broken, but will this get either side closer to the end of the war?
