Things are actually worse for the Ukrainian side than Western pundits and officials ever imaged. The widely reported fall of Avdiivka in Donetsk oblast last week was a bit of a shock to mainstream thinking concerning the state of the war. It demonstrates that the front lines are not 'stalemated' as we were all told, and as has been the common media assumption, but the reality is the Russians will keep making gains.

Two completely contrasting mainstream media reports from recent days highlight that the American national security establishment is still trying to come to grips with what's happening. 

First, state-funded Voice of America (VOA) on Feb. 16 cited a senior US defense official to claim that Russia is suffering "staggering losses despite Ukraine's supply shortages" - as the headline reads.
