John Ciorciari, Newsweek: "The war is now in an extended, grinding phase. The first full winter under sanctions will invite dissent within Russia, especially after Putin's much-criticized mobilization effort. Putin needs to show some credible wins domestically. Internationally, however, the destruction of Bakhmut is apt to backfire, reminding the West of the grim road ahead if Ukraine does not continue to receive ample support."
