11. New phase in war opens up as Ukraine defeats Russia in battle of Kyiv.

The Battle of Kyiv has ended, and Ukraine has emerged victorious.

Russian forces had withdrawn from battlefields in northern Ukraine within days after nearly 40 days of fierce fighting.

Despite a massive effort, Russia was unable to encircle Kiev and establish a blockade.

Russian forces retreated after suffering heavy losses and failing to achieve any of their key objectives, but not before wreaking havoc on Ukrainian towns and cities and committing numerous war crimes.

The political decision to abandon Kyiv sent shockwaves throughout the country. Russian forces left Chernihiv and Sumy oblasts in early April, along with Kyiv Oblast.

These actions marked Russia’s first significant setback in its all-out war against Ukraine. However, it also marked the start of a new phase in the war, in which Russia will attempt to regroup in order to pursue narrower objectives in Ukraine’s east and south.

The Battle of Kyiv may be over, but the Battle of Donbas will be even more decisive and difficult. This battle will almost certainly determine the war’s outcome.

Embarrassing defeat

In late March, the outcome of the operation to encircle Kyiv became very clear.

Russian forces stationed west and northwest of Kyiv had yet to resolve serious logistical issues, particularly regarding food and fuel supplies, after nearly two weeks of inactivity.

By mid-March, Russia still controlled all major transportation hubs in the northwest, including the Bucha-Irpin-Hostomel triangle, Borodyanka, and Ivankiv. This provided Russian forces with an unobstructed long supply line between Belarus and the Chornobyl nuclear power plant area.

Parts of the E40 highway were also under Russian control, effectively cutting off key communications routes to the west. The plan was simple: encircle Kyiv from the west.

However, attempts to travel south of the E40 since mid-March have made little progress.

Russia continued its fierce attempts to advance east of Kyiv along the E95 and H07 highways, which run from Chernihiv and Sumy, respectively. Despite brutal fighting and heavy bombardment, it failed to seize either of the two cities in the first month of the war.

It also failed to maintain firm control over its long supply lines, which were subjected to devastating Ukrainian attacks along highways near the country’s northwest woods. Hit-and-run Ukrainian military and paramilitary units expertly targeted hostile armoured power and supply convoys, effectively wreaking havoc among Russian ranks.

The Russian military was eventually bogged down in close-quarter combat in dense urban terrain west of Kyiv, where Russian air and artillery power was rendered ineffective.

As Russian forces continued to suffer losses and supply shortages, the slow and painful advance came to a halt. It appears that attempts to use the operative lull to regroup and reassess its campaign near Kyiv also failed.
