Two Armas sends in twelve hours over a weekend seems excessive, but events in the war are moving so quickly it is worth this Sunday-morning note. There are more links than analyses here, for which I apologize, but the reader will forgive the exception.
Readers here will recall this:
“[I]n time, and as sympathy for Ukraine grows, it will attract something else: volunteers. If Ukraine survives past thirty days, they will come. They’ll mostly be from Poland, the Baltics, and Scandinavia, with a smattering of Britons and Americans. If Ukraine survives past six months, they’ll be organized into discrete units, a fighting volunteer corps.”
That was forty-eight hours ago, before the folly of assuming timeframes was fully manifest. The volunteers are coming now, and the Ukrainian state is organizing them into the International Legion.
