It has been over a year since tensions escalated in Eastern Europe as Russian troops marched into Ukraine and began their offensive. Since that time, mainstream media outlets have understandably been dominated by the latest frontline news, and barring the first few weeks, have largely shared a narrative that portrays Ukraine as very much in a position of strength.
