The news of the moment — weaving reports from various fronts across Ukraine — hints at a turning of the tide, at least in some parts of the country. Ukrainian counteroffensives in the small cities near Kyiv have gained ground, the one major city captured by the Russians to date — Kherson, in the south — is reportedly being contested again, and a review by the British Ministry of Intelligence issued Wednesday used the word “static” to describe the state of the battlefield broadly. In other words, no significant gains by either side. Russia is “likely conducting a period of reorganization before resuming large-scale offensive operations,” the British assessment said.

Wednesday’s collection of photographs includes several snapshots from the resistance.

A Ukrainian guards a checkpoint in Kharkiv, a trio of soldiers heads for the front in Luhansk, a factory floor turns scrap metal into steel vests, and former member of parliament Tetyana Chornovil totes an anti-tank missile on the outskirts of the capital.

Meanwhile, two of the nation’s leaders were working in terms of communication. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy conducted his latest edition of war diplomacy via Zoom, speaking with the lower house of Japan’s parliament, and Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko gave a news conference in the city center. “It is no secret that the target of the aggressors is the capital,” the mayor said. “We don’t know how long we can defend our city. It could be weeks or months. I hope not years.”
