Peter Hitchens has an essential column over at the Daily Mail on a much-ignored aspect of the Russo-Ukrainian war (I pray it stays that way.)

For those interested, I had an hour-long discussion with a young journalist who writes for the same magazine as I do—The European Conservative—and has decided to remain in Kiev with her parents and grandparents.
