Peter Zeihan: In Kherson, Ukraine and Russia Vie Over the Dnieper River

Featured, Human Interest, Peter Zeihan

Peter Zeihan is a world class geopolitical expert with fact-based viewpoints of important world situations. The war in Ukraine has reached and interesting point and he will explain why. If you have any interest in the Ukraine war, this is a video is well worth watching.

Kyiv announced a counteroffensive against Russian positions around the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson earlier this week, aimed at liberating the strategic oblast’s capital. Russian forces have been in control of the city and most of the region since early in the war.

Situated along the Dnieper River, the region is proximate to some of Ukraine’s most strategic geography and infrastructure; at the moment the most strategic of that infrastructure are the bridges crossing the Dnieper, which brings us to the topic of the day. The difficulties Russia is experiencing in moving troops and materiel across the Dnieper are exactly the sort of trouble Soviet planners wanted to give any would-be Western invaders looking to move east. (They really didn’t plan on Kyiv moving out from under Moscow’s thumb.)

Ukrainian forces have made good use of training and Western arms supplies, particularly American HIMARS, to weaken and in some cases destroy much of this infrastructure. Which creates several interesting possibilities should the Ukrainians prove successful in pushing the Russians back…

Here at Zeihan On Geopolitics we select a single charity to sponsor.

We have two criteria:
First, we look across the world and use our skill sets to identify where the needs are most acute.

Second, we look for an institution with preexisting networks for both materials gathering and aid distribution. That way we know every cent of our donation is not simply going directly to where help is needed most, but our donations serve as a force multiplier for a system already in existence. Then we give what we can.
Today, our chosen charity is a group called Medshare, which provides emergency medical services to communities in need, with a very heavy emphasis on locations facing acute crises. Medshare operates right in the thick of it. Until future notice, every cent we earn from every book we sell in every format through every retailer is going to Medshare’s Ukraine fund.
And then there’s you.
