After six months of war, it is still unclear what the Russian president will do next.

Russia’s main weekly state TV news program is normally expected to trumpet the government’s greatest successes.

However, the most recent Sunday edition of the television show opened with a rare admission.

“On the front lines of special operation [na Ucrânia]this has been the most difficult week so far,” said grim-looking anchor Dmitry Kiselev.

“It was particularly difficult on the Kharkiv front where, after an attack by enemy forces that outnumbered ours, the troops [russas] were forced to leave the cities they had previously liberated.”
